    I have been working at Dropbox full-time

    Pros

    - World class food (among the best in the Bay Area) - Competitive compensation - Top in class benefits - Good work culture (working with amazing people, both intellectually and on a personal level)

    Cons

    - High expectations, need to work really hard to stay afloat - As growth has slowed, we've needed to be more thoughtful in how we spend, but still manage to focus on the employees - I've personally grown numb to several things working here, especially the quality of the food. We're definitely spoiled
