> Weekly all-hands

Is that normal at a 1000+ employee company?

We have a weekly tech all hands at the place I work with 1000+ devs. CTO addresses any anonymous questions we submit as well as informing us of other company decisions/details

pre-COVID ours were held every five weeks but are now held every two weeks. I never understood the value of hosting such a large meeting. Grinding business to a halt and paying upwards of 50k in employee time to deliver news that could otherwise be condensed in an email never made much sense to me.

"Through Jan. 31, 2021"

"Through Jan. 31, 2021, all Box employees can work from anywhere, even when offices reopen"

that last bit means work from home after that too right ?

Even a box.
