    I have been working at Box full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Amazing culture. One of the best anywhere, and by far the best I've ever experienced. Compensation seems consistently above market average. BEST ESPP I've seen of any tech company I've worked for (including Apple). Free in-house lunches and snacks. Very strong and innovative product. Lots of opportunity to move laterally and vertically. This company wants to help you achieve your longterm career goals. Best job...

      I worked at Box full-time for more than 4 years

      Pros

      Employee resource groups, free lunch, snacks, unlimited PTO

      Cons

      talks a big game but actions don't always match up; Being promoted as a minority is very challenging, they say they are working on this but their numbers prove otherwise. not a terrible place to work but after your first year, the cons start to outweigh the pros

      Advice to Management

      ACTION! All of the good ideas and thoughts, make them actionable and hold yourselves accountable for when you fall short. This was actually a good place to work for awhile but management has too many empty promises.

      I worked at Box for more than 4 years

      Pros

      Great product and easy to sell. Easy to explain what it the benefit to buy this solution to their business operation better.

      Cons

      Even though they have a great product, their vision got lost. As company getting larger the free and energetic atmosphere got lost and became more bureaucratic.

      Advice to Management

      Don't be micromanage. Show the long term vision. Have more flexibility.

        Pros

        The people are what makes this job! There's such an incredible culture, flexibility in work schedule, and there's so many opportunities to stand out and take on projects.

        The pay sucks, and truly no one understands the ins and the out of Box product like T1 . Also health insurance is damn near garbage .

        Compensate what's fair for people who work incredibly hard!
