What is working from home like at Box?

Pros

I cannot share enough positive words about Box. I genuinely love my job, responsibilities, the team, compensation, benefits, culture and community at this company. We are provided all of the tools and resources we need to succeed. The team is highly skilled and experienced, and work gets done more quickly and efficiently than any other company I've worked at before. The culture fosters inclusivity, humility and drive. I work with some of the smartest people who genuinely want to be the best versions of themselves both at work and outside of work. I am inspired by fellow Boxers who do countless acts of good in their communities. Aaron Levie is an incredibly driven and visionary CEO. Things have been extremely busy this month and last with the COVID-19 pandemic, and Aaron was already ahead of the curve on building a strategy for our company before the pandemic fully took off in the U.S. I was inspired to see the way he mobilized over 2,000 people to come together and support each other, our customers and our communities. Box has a great mindset pertaining to remote work as well. I live in Colorado and they were willing to be flexible with a fully remote position for me, which I appreciate every day. The team has adapted to the new fully remote life better than I could've ever thought possible. When I am at HQ, I am blown away by the amenities, food and events. Box offers unlimited PTO and I never feel strange about using it. Box really values mental health of employees and encourages employees to take time off with friends and family, or just R&R when needed. Again, I really cannot speak highly enough about this company.

Cons

Sometimes the amount of work travel can be draining for my role, which only happens during busy seasons (like events).

Advice to Management

Keep doing what you're doing. The strong culture of this company cascades from the top down and I feel fully confident in the direction they are taking us.

How is the work/life balance 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.

How flexible is your schedule working at Box?

Pros

culture leadership team w/a vision and strong presence to employees can-do-attitude employees that live by company values product maturity/recognition by top analysts benefits & perks remote/work from home flexibility for many roles

Cons

changes seem to be constant but perceived as pretty normal for a company of Box's size and growth

Advice to Management

Continue to engage with employees and customers. Share our vision, roadmap and continued success at every opportunity to tell our story and change the perception that we're still a commoditized data/file storage solution. Continue to promote from within as this is critical to keeping the strong culture that we have.
