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

    Pros

    - great management across the board - great product, fast pace of innovation - core company values drives innovation and creativity across the company (Be an owner) and makes everyone feel they can impact the direction and success of the company

    Cons

    - Sometimes the product messaging changes to quickly - fast organic growth sometime means high turnover in sales which can be annoying

    Advice to Management

    - keep it up - don't sell the company to OpenText or another dinosaur

    Pros

    -great technology, lovely colleagues, free lunch and snacks... People and tech really great, you will build friendships.

    Cons

    EMEA business clearly struggling as complete wrong strategy. No branding or brand awareness in Europe, hard to build any relationship. Proper support and training of staff. Management pretend to be super great, but it's not... Sales through all channels and teams a struggling and it's more or less very challenging. There is nothing like a team spirit, anyone who says something else is just not telling you the... truth. This is sales team related, other teams doing far better.

    Advice to Management

    Lots of people are leaving, please stop to pretend everything is great, it's not! Please stop faking things up! Stick to your value you preaching day and night... Could be a really good place to work, but....

    Pros

    Great product, good company in the US.

    Cons

    EMEA management is incapable of running a sales organisation. Targets are double the company plan and not achievable. Avoid this company in EMEA.

    Pros

    Benefits, culture and other employees, transparency

    Cons

    Salaries could be more in line with the competition, uncertainty about the company immediate future. Big difference between career development US vs EMEA (US seems to have faster promo cycles and progression)

    Advice to Management

    Company culture, benefits and work-life balance is amazing. The company should be more conscious and focused on employee retention and dedicating more resources to strong career progression plans with concrete check points in terms of salary and responsibilities.
