"Dropbox was my first foray into the tech/start up world and I loved the humility and authenticity baked into the culture at all levels."

"Very supportive of women. Would have loved to see more women in leadership positions specifically in engineering."
"Things are not perfect, there is always room for improvement. And obviously it would be better if women didn't have to do the heavy lifting contributing to that improvement. That said, I've found that giving feedback and introducing improvements is accepted with open arms. Leadership is genuinely on board with supporting whatever ideas we have to improve diversity not just for women but across the board. I'm only a few months in and my ideas are already respected and suggestions being put into practice. Additionally, when I do this "extra work" on top of my main job, it has a dedicated section in performance review and promotion documentation. So at least it is actually a valued part of my job function, and not just work I'm not getting paid for. My leadership is supporting me spending time on this and ultimately taking some amount of time away from my primary job functions, instead of working overtime to do both. I am genuinely inspired to keep working here and making things better every week."
"Dropbox is a great company to work, they make sure women are being supported and provided all the support they need to grow. They are also pretty flexible and give a lot of importance to mental health."

"I've never worked at a company where it's people and their well-being was more prioritized. Dropbox is extremely thoughtful and intentional about it's employee experience, in particular, the needs of women. "

"Dropbox has one of the best cultures of anywhere I've worked. It's a culture that is actively maintained and supported by the company. Even in times of turnover, that culture remains. In my experience, it's not a certain team or org, it's a common thread. I have personally found an abundance of leadership opportunities, recognition, support, and mentorship. I have seen women in roles and levels all across the company and feel very much like an equal. People here are really in tune with each other and create opportunities to listen, connect, and change when change is needed. From day one, I've felt like I can confide in my boss and co-workers, I've never felt judged or embarrassed, and have felt appreciated and recognized by leadership. "
"You will feel greatly valued both by peers and managers! People are super talented and eager to help out, which will empower you to deliver your best work. Another great thing is Hack Week, which allows you to pursue innovative ideas (other than your day to day work, in completely different fields if you want!) working alongside other Dropboxers who you may have not met before. If you value work-life balance, Virtual First provides you with the flexibility you need, and sets standards on what everyone should expect. I particularly like the Collaboration Hours and async by default. You won't be expected to reply to Slack messages or emails right away, but rather (async) when it best works with you (and the work you are doing)."
"Great work life balance, inclusive culture, supportive peers, opportunities for growth"
"Having worked in tech for many years, many companies are good about their messaging and vocalizing their prioritization of being people centric, supporting a healthy WLB, supporting women in the workplace- but I've found Dropbox also walks the walk here. I feel incredibly supported, I have a flexible WLB, and opportunity for growth. Very happy here"

"Dropboxers care deeply about the well-being of all employees! It's embedded in the core values and day to day meetings, emails, etc. I feel so grateful to work for such an empathic and kind company. It's truly a Dropbox family!"

"Dropbox has a comprehensive approach to supporting working moms. From one of the best parental leave policies in the industry, to flexible hours and a culture that is kind, compassionate and understanding, I can't think of a place I'd rather work at as a new mom. Additionally, they are focused on supporting and growing diverse talent. I've had a chance to grow and expand my career over the past 5 years and am very grateful to Dropbox for all of the opportunities. "

"I had a good manager here, but he has since left; make sure you have a good one and have found a good team before joining."

"I do think that men and women *are* treated equally. However like in most companies, managers can be unconsciously biased and are more likely to advocate for people who remind them of themselves. Since Director+ leadership in the engineering organization is almost entirely male, these biases tend to hurt women. The company culture subtly stigmatizes talking openly about pay and level increases. That makes it hard to chart a personal development plan and work with your manager to progress in your career. I hope we get better at that."
"Not just specifically women but anyone in a sales capacity that wants to succeed will find Dropbox more than challenging. The organisation is still learning where it fits in the market and a lot of processes and support systems are not yet in place. For example mat leave in a region, some regions did not have predefined policies for people going on mat leave. Reflects the maturity of the organisation. On a positive note, a lot of very smart people here and future could be great but still is 12-18 months away."
"I've worked in sales roles at three other companies. In each and every other company, I was overtly sexually harassed or told that there would be limitations in my career because of my gender. This is the first company where I am truly unafraid to be in professional or social situations for fear of harassment or inappropriate behavior. Furthermore, I don't feel that I'm viewed differently professionally for being a woman, and that I have the same opportunity for development and pay as my coworkers. There are also a number of women and diversity initiatives that focus on making equalism an approachable and actionable topic. Two big thumbs up."
"Overall, Dropbox is a great place to work."
"Most of the senior leadership is male, but there's a lot of awareness and frequent conversation about the diversity issue here and in the tech world as a whole. I've been at the company for more than a year and always felt that women had fair and equal chance to progress. When I started, I had a male manager who encouraged me to lean in and sought out opportunities for me to take on more responsibility."
"So far there aren't many initiatives for women that help empower them or provide opportunities. I would like to have us as leaders drive that more."
"There are plenty of opportunities here equally for both men and women. As with any fast moving company, you do have to be proactive about asking for promotions and salary increases because we don't yet have formal structure in place across all teams. However, ensuring we have a diverse and inclusive culture is a top priority for all of our Sr. and Mid-level leadership and this will continue to be a priority for recruiting as well. We also have a flexible work schedule so parents are able to be involved in their kids' daily activities. Overall I've loved my time here and recommend it for anyone who enjoys a fast-paced, get stuff done mentality."
