    Pros

    Box knows employees are people too and enables you to balance home and work life with flex hours, remote work, great mental health benefits, lots of community activities and more. The product is also really epic - we are helping companies thrive and survive during the pandemic by enabling secure, remote work. Feels great to know we help companies and orgs from the IRC (International Rescue Committee) to Disney do incredible things.

    Cons

    Meeting heavy culture, but teams working to solve for that and give time back.

    Pros

    People across the board seem to be very dynamic, smart, energetic and really supportive and friendly. Love the culture here. Clearly, this is one of the things that makes Box what it is. Needless to say, the product is solid and you can see how proud Boxers are of the product and the brand.

    Cons

    Nothing so far. Calendars can sometimes become quite full, so make sure you take regular breaks to avoid Zoom fatigue.
