    Pros

    the food is good and healthy

    Cons

    this is a good company to work for but the chef managers can be malicious and abusives creating a toxic work environment.

    Talent Brand Team on behalf of Chef Brian: Thank you for taking the time to share your experience. It's very disheartening to read about your experience as this is in no way the environment we strive to foster for the Tuck Shop team. I would welcome more specifics on what you've ...

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

    Pros

    Our mission and product strive to create a more enlightened way of working and that is evident in all that we do. The people that work here at Dropbox are INCREDIBLE. Everyone is intelligent and willing to share their wisdom as well as receive tips and tricks from others. This is truly a collaborative environment where I learn something new everyday. The sky is the limit, you can pitch any idea or project to management...

    Cons

    Not so much a con as it is a warning - Dropbox is a work environment that is ever changing and evolving. If you are someone that needs structure, strict rules, or a step by step guide to you job, this probably isn't the place for you.

    Advice to Management

    Continue evolving, admitting mistakes and making changes, and keep up the great work!

  5. "solid place to work"

      Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

      I worked at Dropbox full-time

      Pros

      Tons of perks, and many smart people to work with.

      Cons

      If you don't use the product, it's hard to identify with as much as consumer software.

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

        Pros

        Transparency is something that is great to see here - people are pretty open, willing to share information and willing to help you get acclimated. The tech culture seems somewhat mature but with a lot of room to grow as well, and no shortage of interesting problems still yet to solve, which can somewhat be an issue at a post-IPO company of this size. Ethically, this company seems to be in the right place and committed...

        Cons

        Food in New York isn't as good as the amazing Tuck Shop in the SF headquarters!

        I have been working at Dropbox full-time

        Pros

        I have never worked for a company that cares so much for their employees. Dropbox offers an amazing setting to work and gives you all the tools you need to get your job done well. My co-workers and kind and respectful, and the company is self-reflective and ever-changing. I'm so proud to be a Dropboxer!

        Cons

        Decision making can be slow.
