    I have a question, how should one consider the fact that Dropbox is about to IPO?

      Have 10+ years of experience, getting promo to 65 this cycle. I thought 400k+ is considered high.

    And FB offer is in Seattle while Dropbox is in San Francisco. So the FB offer actually values more than it says.

    Damn! Good job. Ping me if you're curious about Dropbox. I think that's a solid offer.

    What price per share did Dropbox consider when saying 600K, on 6B valuation ($10/share) or 10B valuation or something else?

    No one knows the true value of that Dropbox equity right now. FB is the clear winner imo, but consider asking for a higher base. FB can do better.

    I think this is pretty clear choice to me. Facebook is a winner here, and awesome job getting those numbers.
