What is working from home like at Box?

Pros

Box is a company you will be proud to work for, period. The culture at Box is the best out there - full of GOOD people who are enthusiastic about Box, passionate about life, and bring their authentic selves to work every day. Executive leadership has no ego and the CEO is one-of-a-kind, intelligent, genuine, and incredibly passionate. Incredible level of transparency is shared with the entire company on deals, products and business strategy. You feel like you’re really part of something & have the opportunity to make a real impact no matter what your role is! Lots of opportunity to move into new roles too. The product itself is such a game changer for remote work and companies wanting to thrive in the digital age. Flexible vacation policy, 5 months maternity leave, WFH stipend during COVID-19. Everyone has been especially supportive of each other during COVID-19 - giving employees additional paid days off, mental health resources and a flexible work from anywhere policy. If you’re lucky enough to get hired at Box, you will feel like you’re part of a family. After 2+ years I’ve not once dreaded going into work, in fact I look forward to it! Box is still building it’s place in the market, which makes it exciting times at the company and gives you lots to look forward to.

Cons

- The stock price is nothing to write home about. - No 401k match (which has been a pain point for many years, and leadership continues to glaze over this despite massive demand from employees) - Box is not a top payer in the industry - Does not pay for cell phone or gym, but does supply a small monthly stipend for both.

Advice to Management

Keep being human first and exemplifying our amazing culture! Continue to hire the best people to reach our goals. And let’s finally do something about that 401k match....

What is overtime like at Box?

Pros

Box is a company full of hardworking, fast paced, smart people. I think it's the type of company culture you don't ever forget and it's been one of the best companies I've worked at. The leadership team is really cohesive and has a clear vision for Box. Managers are also really thoughtful of career development for teams and honestly, the nicest teams I've worked with. Given the landscape we're in now, our products are also positioned well to win in the market which is a HUGE selling point for our company. Our engineers are phenomenal and our teams really know how to work together.

Cons

There are times when management and leadership can make decisions too quickly and end up having to re-evaluate some of those decisions down the line which impact employees and their work. On the flip side, sometimes decisions don't have a driver which end up holding up processes and procedures which happens in any company. The product line is also relatively complex at first but messaging has been much more simplified over time which I hope will continue to drive the sales cycle in an easier or more digestible way!

Advice to Management

Continue to develop people and drive strong culture - it's what really makes Box an amazing place to work!

How flexible is your schedule working at Box?

Pros

Box knows employees are people too and enables you to balance home and work life with flex hours, remote work, great mental health benefits, lots of community activities and more. The product is also really epic - we are helping companies thrive and survive during the pandemic by enabling secure, remote work. Feels great to know we help companies and orgs from the IRC (International Rescue Committee) to Disney do incredible things.

Cons

Meeting heavy culture, but teams working to solve for that and give time back.
