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

    Pros

    I've only been at Dropbox for a short time, but so far I've had an excellent experience. Beyond the unbelievable perks and benefits (and food!), people are smart, passionate, and very excited about the roadmap ahead of us. I'm actively trying to recruit all my friends to come work here too!

    Cons

    Dropbox is definitely not a startup. We're nearly 2000 people now, so it seems we're working through figuring out how to continue to move quickly and not get caught up in process, but the good news is the leadership team is aware of this trap and is working to avoid it.

    I worked at Dropbox full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    location, amazing food, good benefits

    Cons

    early on this place was so rich in culture, its what made me want to work for dropbox. I looked forward to coming to work with amazing, talented and intelligent people who eventually became very close friends. over time, yes scale happens but this place just fell apart. all the amazing people left, i've heard more people complain about work in the last 6 months than over the last 3 years. hiring felt like we were working...

    I have been working at Dropbox full-time

    Pros

    - Strong culture; nice, high-EQ coworkers across all teams; very little politics and infighting - Competitive compensation; nice perks (especially Tuck Shop food in SF office) - Good product that has been adopted by a massive customer base; large market opportunity

    Cons

    - Analysis paralysis; slow pace of decision making across many parts of the company - Slow pace of execution; problem is especially acute in certain key teams at the company - Talent quality across many teams has degraded significantly compared to a few years ago

    Advice to Management

    - Senior leadership needs to provide much clearer direction for future of company - that means laying out not just some grand “vision” but an actual plan on how to get there - Make major changes in certain teams that have consistently underperformed in the last few years
