Business role (Former Employee) –  San Francisco, CAOctober 25, 2016
Dropbox is a decade old "startup" that has yet to make a clear profit. Benefits and pay are competitive for SF. Workloads are high as many people leaders are not competent at managing others. The most enjoyable part of the job is working with smart people. The hardest part of the job is taking some executives seriously that have no business managing other people. The HBO series "Silicon Valley" should do a future season based on this company.

Ok place to work
Security Specialist (Former Employee) –  San Francisco, CAAugust 13, 2015
The perks of the job are way better than the job itself. Being security there can be boring if you're not the favorite of the supervisor. Work loads are Not evenly distributed. There's no room for advancement and no guarantees to anything promised. But the Benefits are awesome and its definitely worth it not having to buy or bring lunch everyday.
Pros
Free meals, snacks, and computer accessories, healthcare, pay rate
Cons
short breaks, if at all

Accounts Payable Specialist (Former Employee) –  San FranciscoDecember 2, 2014
Dropbox was behind on invoice processing so brought in 3 temps to catch up, using NetSuite software. They also use their own software for email management; and also Zendesk for task management. That was new to me, so was a good learning experience.
They have a very young group at Dropbox, so wasn't as professional as I'm used to. My manager was very supportive and always available for any questions or suggestions on process improvements.
Pros
Breakfast, lunch and dinner everyday. Snacks all over the place. Lively group.
Cons
Workload was light for my experience.

Software Engineer (Current Employee) –  San Francisco, CAJune 21, 2014
At Dropbox, there are a lot of really smart people tackling interesting problems.

The compensation is great, the food is better than a majority of restaurants, and management trusts you to figure out how to get your work done.
