Has anybody here felt that Dropbox isn't a fair employer?

I remember them mentioning 'having work authorization' as one of the criteria in the requirements section of the JD. They removed it now perhaps.

Also for more context talking about Diversity:

This picture was posted on a special Black Diversity occasion fyi

    Wtf? That's not what equal opportunity employment means.
    Not having work authorization isn't a protected class like race, religion, etc

    Please read up on these things before becoming a SJW. It will help your cause

      And not having a black person in the picture doesn’t mean they are unfair towards black people. SJWs are dumb AF

      I don’t expect you to be a seasoned politician but don’t be dense @Mmkaay. Obviously it’s bad optics to release a press photo on a pro-AA day w/o AA.

    Diversity doesn’t just mean having black skin. 🙄 Two of the people in the photo are probably LGBT or something.

      Next, we will have to specify human applicants. So much animal discrimination.

      Maybe not that far but very few company's are willing or able to handle non eligable talent.

    Immigrant here: H1B is not a right, it's a privilege. If you don't like it just go back to where you're from or find a way to become a citizen. Sucks but such is life.

    Work authorisation is also a legal requirement. Isnt it illegal to employ people who don't have work authorisation? What's the next post going to be about? How US border security is discriminatory for not allowing people without a visa in the country?

    Not sure what OP means by “having work authorization”. We do sponsor H1B. And I know many people working here under H1B, including myself. We also have African American working across various functions.

      I think OP just mad he didn’t get in and probably Indian, so he thinks Dropbox doesn’t like dark skinned people who need visas. Projecting.

    It just means a company doesn't want/can't afford to spend $$$ on immigration lawyers to do the paperwork for the work authorization. I'd be very surprised if this was the case here though. A small startup yes, but not Dropbox.
