    I worked at Box for more than 3 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.

    I have been working at Box full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great food, fantastic visibility into leadership, access to senior executives is unlike anything I've ever seen! Aaron is possibly one of the best CEOs out there, and his vision is very strong. He has almost a reality distortion field like Steve Jobs, and is brilliant! We're constantly providing upgrades to benefits, like paid time off for new families, etc. Box has an amazing metric they track: how many filled job roles for senior positions were from internal hires/transfers? That's huge in my book. The executive team goes out of their way to ensure there's full clarity on Box's mission, it's trajectory, and everything in between.

    Cons

    As the company grows, there's been some increases in politics here and there. It's not widespread, seems to be by org which is good. Every company will have politics - every company. Box can definitely do a better job at making it easier in some orgs (again, not all!!!) to get promoted. A few orgs have shown a decrease in merit-based recognition in favor of, well, favoritism. It's unfortunate, but to err is human right?

    I have been working at Box full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Box is a positive, high energy culture with a great vision and proven history of executing on large and small projects alike. Box employs some of the best and brightest from college hires to experienced staff and it shows. The culture and spirit is infectious and I’m proud to be able to advocate on behalf of Box. Benefits package is top notch, even for remote folks like myself. I may miss out on the awesome lunches at HQ, but I make up for it in work / life balance. My healthcare costs are now a fraction of what I’ve historically payed at other firms. I find not having to count vacation or sick hours to be a boon. My direct manager and I set a great open channel of communication from day one so I have no concerns about asking for time and being told no, or I’m “over the limit”. Box is really easy to use and helps both my personal and professional lives!

    Cons

    As a company, it is easy for the company to work in silos. There is a lot of talent across the organization and it isn’t necessarily easy to get access to it being remote. I have encountered this challenged everywhere I have worked remotely, but Box does have tools and processes in place to mitigate this. For example, we have multiple communication channels to ask for assistance (above and beyond the obvious talk to your manager). Communication from the C-level is common, detailed and highly energetic, but I would love to see more of it. Like I said earlier, working at Box can have that infectious in a fantastic way about it. More in this case is better!
