Advertising

Copywriter

So graduated advertising in 2016 I’m quite creative & out of the box. But instead of working at it I starting traveling the world, worked abroad in different places but nothing to do with it. Now I’m wondering how to get into advertising Should I take internships or what should I do? Thank you!

    Pros

    It’s genuinely fun to work with a tool that has so many different functionalities to get into, and team is well developed. Combines good environment/respect within the org with good amount of room for opportunity.

    Cons

    Challenging to compete with so many established vendors, which makes wins potentially special.

    Great overall culture; boring tech work

    Pros

    Box has the best corporate culture I've ever experienced. It's been very supportive and understanding of employees' needs, especially during the pandemic.

    Cons

    Box seems to adopt all the best engineering practices, and things look great on paper. However, everything is done half-ass, and on the ground most of things are broken. Box constantly switches tools never mastering or utilizing any of them 100%. Everything is constantly migrating to something else, yet the huge mountain of 15 year old tech debt remains. Dev teams have very slow pace and are constantly fighting the tech environment problems they can't control or solve.

    One of the best companies out there!

    Pros

    Great company for the most part, great people, excellent product, what else is there to say...

    Cons

    Can't really think of any to be quite honest except for maybe the c-suite not really escaping the Silicon Valley bubble (where HQ is located) to get a real pulse on what is going on at the company. At times being in the satellite offices or WFH can make you feel like a second class citizen at the company.

    Starts off great, but can lead to burnout

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Like everywhere else it has pros and cons it really depends on your team and manager but overall great place to work. When I first joined I was thrilled everything went great I was excited to work and I did, until i began to notice its nearly impossible to launch or get anything done without jumping through SEVERAL issues and loops. Eventually you realize you are working so hard with no progress to show for anything becuase you have spent most of your time fixing and defining things that should have already been in place. Because of this its extremely easy to burn out here. Which is why im convinced most people don't stay here long at all (they claim to have normal attrition) . For a company as old as Box they have tons to do internally as they barely have processes in-place, no clear direction for career growth, poor infrastructure and very flaky management..just look at the older comments or other review sites that go years back, it just seems its always been this way here. I was so excited to work here Im afraid I am starting to not like it which is really sad because it has the best work culture i've ever experienced.

    Cons

    Read above for insight^ TLDR: -Lack of career direction -management -poor infrastructure -no processes -Flaky Manangement -chaotic startup feel environment at times
