I have been working at Dropbox as an intern for less than a year

Pros

* Good opportunities to create something, which will have direct impact on 175 million people.
* Relatively young average age of co-workers. Most of them are quite cool people, not standard nerds. You can hang-out with Guido(creator of Python) during breakfast, who has an awesome sense of humor. Staff spends a lot of time together.
* Great free food. Tuck shop is the best, I wish they worked on weekends.
* Realizing your own ideas. Hackweeks twice a year.
* Flat organization structure. Just 2 layers between intern and CEO. So it's easy to reach your voice to top management. CEO sits among other employees and is a great guy.

Cons

* Most people works more than 40 hours a week. It's normal for start-up like Dropbox is, but if you have a family it can be a problem.
* Office is near AT&T park, so streets/restaurants/shops are crowded during matches.
* Probably you will be very demotivated after you leave this company.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

* Pay more attention recruiting in Europe.

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

    Pros

    I get to work with some of the most intellegent and hardworking people I've ever met. The work is challenging and interesting.

    Every perk you expect to see at a stereotypical Bay Area startup is available (gym, masseuse, 3 5-star meals a day, social calendar)

    Cons

    There are some growing pains. This usually looks like transient bottlenecks - but occasionally involves having management structure form organically rather than deliberately, which doesn't always feel optimal.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's an open work environment. If I had advice for management I'd go to them with it.
