I have been working at Dropbox full-time (More than a year)

Pros

- High caliber of talent. I've never once been frustrated by someone else's lack of competence.
- Good people. "We not I" is one of the company's values. I've never been slighted by someone's lack of integrity of selfishness. This is rare!
- Learning galore. Lots of growth means you get to take on responsibilities that you wouldn't otherwise have at an established company.

Cons

Need clearer career paths and better programs for mentorship, career growth and development. Also, lots of inexperienced managers who are new to managing people.

Advice to Management

Continue to hire great, experienced people managers.

    I worked at Dropbox full-time

    Pros

    Smart people
    Highly ambitious - 'aim higher' is a core value
    Amazing culture
    Very generous with their employees

    Cons

    Conflicting identity - consumer or enterprise?
    Low morale given the conflict
    Concerned market saturation

    Advice to Management

    Stick to your guns - continue to deliver products that delight the customers. Focusing on bottom line will only solidify your identity. If you continue to build products that people can't live without then the bottom line with take care of itself. Cupcake FTW!
