    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.

      I worked at Box full-time for more than 3 years

      Pros

      Great tech, great brand, fantastic culture and genuinely sound people to work with and enjoy the job. Some very talented folk. Company direction and culture changing, but overall Box is a great brand in the market.

      Cons

      Slow roadmap, perhaps had its day as a hyper growth company, tough sell, poor local senior management, no one knows what the future will bring. Huge turnover of staff.

      Advice to Management

      EMEA has been neglected critically for too long. Product has a shrinking set of USPs that make the enterprise sell ever harder. Need serious leadership in the region. And need product innovation to leap ahead of the competition.

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

      Pros

      I've worked in the London office for coming up to a year. I love it. The job itself is varied, interesting and full of opportunities for growth. The staff are hard working, team orientated and incredibly co-operative. The environment is open, honest and playful.

      Cons

      The fast pace of the company means constant change. If you like stability, this environment may be a challenge.
