    Je travaille chez Dropbox à plein temps (Plus d'un an)

    Avantages

    Benefits and pay are truly excellent. There are generous stipends for transit, wellness, learning and development (books and conferences), and others. Dental, vision, and health are all covered. There is donation matching up to a $1000 per year, unlimited volunteer and paid time off (which, if you're daring enough to request, truly seems unlimited—I have yet to hear of someone's PTO request being declined), and if you're in an office with a Tuck Shop, world-class food served every day. You can gift Dropbox space to friends and family.

    The culture values kindness and open-mindedness to a fault, and teams are given massive autonomy to work and ship as they see fit. This means you can have very different experiences depending on your team and manager. This also means if you see something broken, you're generally given the OK to go and fix it if you have the will.

    There are company events throughout the year, including team offsites (I've been hiking, on a cruise, to an escape room, and to countless dinners and happy hours), guest speakers, parties, etc. Dropbox seems to spare no expense on events and travel, although I've heard it was even more extravagant in the past.

    Inconvénients

    Dropbox lies squarely in the "ruinous empathy" quadrant of business culture. Promotions are measured by the number of friends you make, not the results you achieve, which results in decision making by committee and projects that lag on for months at a time because nobody is willing to take ownership or say "no." At the same time, projects spanning 6+ months of research, design, and engineering can be derailed by the opinion of a single manager in the pursuit of "perfect" rather than "better".

    Staff lack a clear vision for Dropbox. Milquetoast strategy updates and new opportunities receive endless bravado but when it comes to actual execution there's little follow-through. Meanwhile, the core Dropbox product continues to suffer from longstanding problems like convoluted sharing and horrendously slow performance.

    We use Dropbox Paper, our own docs offering, for absolutely everything—from project management to calendaring to to-do lists to meeting notes. What results is total chaos. There is no sane way to organize docs, which get produced at an astounding rate: product managers regularly compose dozens of new Paper docs in any given week. There is no way we would organize ourselves this way if we weren't so committed to using and abusing our own tool.

    Simple bugfixes languish in backlogs for months or years without resolution. Abysmal developer tools and nonexistent analytics slow the company to a crawl.

    We talk a big talk about "designing a more enlightened way of working" (corporate thinkpieces go up on the blog every few weeks) but how can we hope to improve work for others when our own house is a mess?

    All these issues aren't new, and they're well-known to anyone who has been in the organization for longer than a year. We will talk about them and collectively agree they need to be addressed, but for whatever reason, nothing ever seems to happen.

    Conseils à la direction

    LEAD. Where are you? From down on the ground, seems like you've tapped out. Commit to a direction and see it through. Hold people accountable for results and set real deadlines. Fix the basics.

    Standardize from the top down. We aren't a startup anymore, but we still act like one. We need standard platforms and processes across the org for project management, hard requirements for shipping, easily accessible analytics for *all* teams, and a continuous, direct line of communication with customer success so we understand the real problems that users are facing, not the problems we make up for our user personas to face.

    Treat remote offices as first-class citizens. There's a lot of thrash that most likely goes unnoticed in SF. Check in to see how people are doing.

    Pursue diversity more aggressively. And no, this doesn't mean just hiring more white women. We aren't doing well. Start with staff.

    Avantages

    - Great benefits
    - Flexible (working from home)
    -Very nice and smart people to work with
    - Great product

    Inconvénients

    - no career path
    - some managers have no experience and less knowledge than employees and is very difficult to cooperate with such people e.g. nasty comments, texting employees over weekends and evenings
    - there is no chance for you unless you become friends with management. This kind of friendships are being taken to extreme that at some point regular employees feels excluded
    - micromanagement
    - too many contractors
    - lack of training
    - management behaves like in playschool

    Conseils à la direction

    Hire experienced managers with people skills and develop HR department so issues can be spotted

    Je travaille chez Dropbox à plein temps (Plus d'un an)

    Avantages

    - Everyone who works here is super smart, humble and kind. The recruiting team has done a great job maintaining that culture as we've grown.

    - The perks are insanely generous, especially the food served in the Tuck Shop.

    - We're working on interesting problems and thinking critically and empathetically about how to improve the way people get work done

    - Especially in the younger parts of the company, there's still a lot of opportunity to build teams/processes/etc from scratch. Could be frustrating if you'd rather have all that figured out already, but if you enjoy that challenge you'll be happy here.

    - If you care about work/life balance, you can definitely find it here.

    Inconvénients

    - There's a lot of fear internally about breaking pieces of our business model or product or website that have traditionally worked well for the company, which stifles our own ability to take risks and innovate.

    - People are almost too nice, which had led to a culture where you need to get everyone's buy in before your project can move forward. This slows us down and also allows one person to block an entire project on a whim.

    Conseils à la direction

    - Get serious about setting up processes that will help move work forward, faster.

    - Don't be afraid to put a stake in the ground with your vision for the future of our product. If we can't commit to points of view around industry innovations, we'll get trounced by competitors who can.

    - Empower employees to take more risks. The lawyers shouldn't be the ones running the company.

    Je travaille chez Dropbox à plein temps (Plus d'un an)

    Avantages

    - Great attention to the inner workings of all processes, and to the underlying needs of employees
    - Transparency and candor around key business objectives and results
    - Care about employee buy-in to company strategy and future

    Inconvénients

    - Atrocious treatment of lower-level talent. Frequent and poorly-executed management changes and poor resource allocation lead to burn out, lack of recognition, lack of strategic direction/support, and high attrition risk at lower IC levels.
    - Too much talk too little action. So much time is spent discussing how to do work and how to be more efficient, but no decisions/actions/tangible or impactful changes are actually implemented.
    - Lack of direct communication. Difficult questions aren't addressed nose -on and danced around, with a patronizing approach vs a 'lets find a better forum and talk this through' approach more appropriate for a smaller company.

    Conseils à la direction

    - Focus on giving lower level employees more channels to resolve their concerns (they should not be at the mercy of their leads, with little opportunity for change)
    - Be more direct in communication, even if it's not what employees want to hear (i.e. policy/approach toward CW conversions)

    Avantages

    Culture is exemplary, lots of perks and benefits as they try to compete with Google’s benefits package. Hack week is especially fun.

    Inconvénients

    Strategic enterprise was an overshoot. No real ROI or compelling event meant entire teams were worked to the bone with little result.

    Conseils à la direction

    Understand that the B2B market is different to the B2C market. I hope the ones who remain are targeted against a reasonable quota and not left in the lurch when it comes to the enterprise opportunity.
