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

    Pros

    COVID 19 has shown the world which companies have moral leadership and i'm so proud to work at Box! Aaron seems to actually care about the people who work at Box and I admire his, and the rest of the leadership teams transparency during these uncertain times. I am more inclined to work really, really hard when I feel like the company has my back and that is exactly the situation I have at Box. I am proud to work at Box!

    Cons

    There is room for improvement with internal processes but I think this is a growing pain of a company that still sometimes operates as a start-up but isn't anymore. Also, there is no 401k or employee donation matching which has become standard for bay area tech companies.

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

    Pros

    I've been at Box for 5 years, and it's by far the best company culture I've been a part of. Our values truly drive the way we do business, and the company cares about their employees. The team has been innovating on the product roadmap like crazy and we're a company at the forefront of powering people to WFH through the pandemic.

    Cons

    No company is perfect and Box has seen its normal share of ups and downs through the years. What's important is how we fail fast and continue to foster our culture through growth.

    Pros

    Very flexible working environment (depends on your team) Legit value prop and good market timing with COVID You can lateral and promote pretty well if you can tolerate some politics

    Cons

    Exceedingly political company culture. Hyperliberal tech vibes but that's to be expected.

    I worked at Box full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    I enjoyed working with Box a lot, nice teamwork and collaboration environment. Great WLB!

    Cons

    Stock performance was not that desirable which could hurt team morale. Top-down decision making was not the best way to trigger creation.

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

    Pros

    -Extremely supportive culture (PTO and work-life balance are encouraged; there is a lot of transparency) -Opportunity for internal mobility -The talent & belonging team work hard to establish a sense of community (and Boxers are typically pretty friendly and open) -Great benefits/perks (Commuter, behavioral health/wellness, parental support, just to name a few) -Free lunch, snacks in the office

    Cons

    -No 401k match -No office gym (but this was only a loss for me because my last company had one; Box compensates with a monthly fitness stipend)

  8. "Great company, but leadership is lacking"

    4.0
    Former Employee - Account Executive in San Francisco, CA

    I worked at Box full-time

    Pros

    -Decent comp -Culture can be great, but this heavily depends on your team and manager -Great HQ and C-Suite

    Cons

    -Morale is much lower since Starboard joined the Board. Sales reps are treated more like a number than actual people. -Lots of talk around D&I, but politics still take reign. -Leadership isn’t receptive to feedback or actively seeking it out, allowing toxic management styles to continue unchecked.
