If I won the lottery, I would still be at work everyday

Sales (Current Employee) Palo Alto, CA (US)

ProsWorking at Box is a dream come true. I don't understand how this company merits less than 5 stars on Glassdoor. It must be people who expected to come in and be respected for not contributing anything. One thing is for sure, Box hires the best, and they expect the best. Now that we are pushing 450+, it is harder and harder to stand out but there are so many motivational factors to put in 110%. We have a lot of VP's, and they are all the brightest most down to earth people I have ever worked with. It is open seating, there are no offices, no cubicles. You might be sitting next to a VP, or the COO. It doesn't matter what your role is, if you have an idea you speak up, and you are listened to, it is truely an amazing place to work.

Free breakfast/lunch/dinner
More snacks and food than you could want
New office is unbelievable - slide, ping pong, pool table, TV's, amazing conference rooms
Nationally recognized rewards - office, product, management, founders
You have the chance to contribute and be listened to by upper management
Free Caltrain pass (pretty sure that alone is a $2k value)
Subsidized gym and cell phone
Random happy hours on Thursday and Friday
Company sponsored events (SF Giants!)

ConsEverything is constantly changing in flux. When you are hiring at 10x you can't keep the same processes for long. It gets overwhelming sometimes, but you know that everyday won't be the same. Scalable processes still haven't been put into place, but it is up to us to come up with those processes and implement them. Also career track isn't quite established in the sales group, but this could be a good thing for some. Instead of advancing in the sales team, it is possible to move horizontally to a different department

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep going 10x. This space is so hot right now, it is ours to lose. We have the most amazing product by far, it is a dream to sell, but once we become complacent we will lose the race. Keep doing what you are doing, the whole company is behind you and the morale is incredibly high

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
