How do employees feel about the referral program at Dropbox?

Pros

- Really nice, smart coworkers. Many of whom have left the marketing org - Amazing in office culture when that existed - Great base pay + bonus program

Cons

- New CMO is one of the weakest marketing leaders I have ever seen. Very top down and little experience in performance marketing - Very little stock

Great base pay + bonus program

What is the salary like at Dropbox?

Pros

Competitive base salary, unlimited PTO, great work life balance, benefits, empathetic culture, smart and kind colleagues, good branding

Cons

- Equity grants not competitive, especially when considering the stagnant stock price - Recent budget cuts + Corona has led to many decreased benefits that attracted me to work here in the first place, e.g. no food stipend while working remote - Slow product decision making and lack of clear business strategy at times - Analytics and data not prioritized by leadership leading to stunted growth of analytics teams, less data-driven decision making, low data quality and poor tooling

Advice to Management

Prioritize growing your analytics teams and improving their career development/opportunities and provide equity on par with other roles in the org. Invest in better analytics tools.

Does Dropbox offer a weekly bonus?

Pros

- Base pay and bonuses are competitive - Lots of budget provided to ERGs, company cares about diversity and equity - Used to get free food, happy hours and gym, now this is replaced by a quarterly stipend - Good place to coast and get by if you're happy with where you're at professionally

Cons

- Needlessly political - Lots of talk of "virtual first" - company actually limits your ability to work away from your starting location to 90 days a year, unless you make a permanent move. This is also NOT a differentiator, as most tech companies work remotely now. - Wasteful investments, lack of vision - former CMO spent millions on a new web experience with questionable goals, then management had paid media team devote time to buy "cheap" traffic driving to said site - Company relies too much on perks to retain employees rather than developing employees, establishing a vision employees can buy into, and eliminating toxicity and politics

Base pay and bonuses are competitive

What are other benefits and incentives like at Dropbox?

Pros

Dropbox is a company that practices what it preaches and has fantastic values. When you don't have to advocate for yourself because leadership does it for you, you get the ability to focus on your work like never before, a great environment, competitive compensation, and a work life balance.

Cons

Dropbox focuses on retention and does it through promotion & growth opportunities, but I think the leads can do a better job advocating where those opportunities are.

We are so honored that Dropboxers have helped us earn a No. 1 ranking on Glassdoor's Top U.S. companies for Work/Life Balance in 2022 list. 🥳 Thank you to our leadership for fostering greater productivity by enabling more diversity in working styles. “As much of the world has moved to remote work in the last two years, we saw Virtual First as an opportunity to truly live out our mission of designing a more enlightened way of working. By being a distributed workforce ourselves, we’re better able to build products that cater to distributed teams, as we rely so heavily on them in our everyday work." - Dropbox Chief People Officer, Melanie Rosenwasser

Diversity and Inclusion
Say hi to Susanne K., director of software engineering based in San Francisco. "I’m a mentor in our DEI sponsorship program for women and people from underrepresented groups. This is a fantastic program that helps people write self-reviews, and helps managers write the best descriptions of their team members’ work. This program allows every employee to get the best representation possible during performance reviews and promotion cycles. For women and minorities, sometimes it’s hard getting this kind of support. This program helps underrepresented talent learn to represent themselves well, and to be proud of their work. I want to continue doing this forever!" We asked Dropboxers, "What kind of impact do you want to make in the world?" See what others had to say.
