"Top company"24 Jan 2022

Current Employee - Sales Manager

I have been working at Google full-time

Pros

Wonderful work life balance, overall management trust and loads of growth potential for years to come

Cons

An internal complexity that is bringing more time working on internal issues than doing business

"Great Company"21 Sep 2021

Current Employee - Recruiter

I have been working at Dropbox full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

* A company that truly cares about their staff * Dropbox always looks for ways to make things easier for employees - for example a company day off every month * The future of work is here and... Dropbox is championing this in how we have shifted to Virtual First working. It has created much more balance for me with a small family, we are learning as we go but you can really see the efforts the company makes to make sure we as staff are ok!!

Cons

I really can't think of any, all challenges encounter we face as a team!

Advice to Management

Keep doing a great job!!
