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

    Pros

    I haven't regretted joining Box for a second. The company has a fantastic culture, a great product set (which has a leadership position within all of the key analyst reports) and offers really interesting work. The European team is in transition, but there are some brilliant team members and some top new talent joining the Sales, Marketing and CS teams. The culture is genuinely supportive and collaborative, both at a regional and global level, with many community groups (MOSAIC, Pride, Box Women's Network) and an ongoing program run by our Chief Fun Officers. Benefits are excellent. I've also seen multiple colleagues be promoted and some excellent international transfer opportunities.

    Cons

    The new strategy isn't for everyone: it requires real drive, passion and belief. But I really believe that it's the right one.

    Pros

    -amazing culture (great work/life balance and Boxers not on your immediate team are generally very approachable) -strong leadership (Aaron Levie, John H, Stephanie C, and Mark W are all exceptional) -Great product — consistently acknowledged by 3rd party research groups as leaders in the cloud content management space

    Cons

    -GTM teaming is not consistent. It's difficult to align the AE, CSM, and RMs. -Territories not virtualized -Customer engagement model is going through some growing pains

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

    Pros

    -HQ is a very nice office, and right next to the Redwood City Caltrain Station -Lunch is served daily and there are snacks -Management is for the most part transparent about what is going on day-to-day -Unlimited PTO

    Cons

    -Incredibly political -Managers who either micro-manager, or are no where to be found for support -Poor performing employees are not let go -Company is going downhill. People are leaving left and right. Stock price is only going down. Perks, like dinner, are being taken away -Not very competitive pay -No 401(k) match, and while it remains the most requested company perk, management continues to sugarcoat the fact that it won't be happening anytime soon

    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    if you are underrepresented person of color, female or openly LGBTQ then you r in a place that will respect you. and Box has a good security story that big security minded companies need. box has a big name that looks good on a resume. HQ close to train in redwood city. easy commute

    Cons

    if you are not any of the above or you older or right-leaning conservative, then stay away. OneDrive, Sharepoint and Google Drive are destroying opportunities. security nearly as good as box now. not much of a diff story to tell. def in survival mode. no 401k match. stock plan stinks. revolving door. the king doesn't know whats happening out in the village...or doesnt care.

    Pros

    Box has a great culture. They hire friendly people and actively work to create a welcoming and open environment.

    Cons

    Frequent technical struggles hinder development. Productivity tools can be unreliable. Layers of bureaucracy have built up over time which slow down work without making processes safer.
