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

    Pros

    The cofounders really care about the people here, and you see this on a daily basis. The decision making process at the exec level is really transparent, so you get to learn a lot on a broader company level (what our 3/6/12 month goals are, why they are that way, what we could of done better in the last year, etc.). There are times when I feel like part of my job is getting paid to go to business school, how awesome is...

    Cons

    Structure and career pathing isn't *yet* as defined as it would be at a Google or Facebook. But what do you expect? We are currently ~700 employees and last year at this time we were ~250 - of course there are going to be some growing pains. It is something currently being addressed at a company wide level and the leadership knows how important it is as we grow, so I don't imagine it being a bullet point in this section...

      I worked at Dropbox full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Good benefits and one of the best food in the area; could be a great place if your goal is to have a "good time".

      Cons

      Culture is the keyword here but many people here think culture is only about free stuff. There are too many people doing similar jobs and the organization structure and achievement is sorely lacking. "Nice" culture creates passive aggressive behavior and lack of courage to do the right things. Stay away if you are an achiever.

      Advice to Management

      Empower middle managers since they are the ones who will help scale the company beyond current stage.
