    Pros

    Developing region so scope provided by Box to succeed on own merits. Box provides solid training and sufficient knowledge to be dangerous. Support infrastructure is there. Box has distinct advantages over competitors DropBox and Microsoft in functionality and security. Once a client takes time o see this the likelihood is that they will choose Box.

    Cons

    At present most support for the current team is outside of Australia so timezones are a difficulty. But not an insurmountable one.

    Pros

    I've worked at Box for nearly 7 years and have had a chance to experience work in different functions of the go-to-market business. Box has always strived to help employees succeed. Culture has been always in focus, all the way from recruitment to day-to-day interactions between employees. Box is a very dynamic company, a its product and market keep evolving quickly. As such it's a great fit for people who like to learn and build new skills. The sales process requires interaction across all GTM functions, and the Box team are always ready to help each other.

    Cons

    Not really a con for me, but prior to applying, it's important to realise that this is a fast moving company. A]s such one needs to be ready to challenge themselves to succeed.
