I have not touched on the fact that some companies might have an issue with work stuff being on a cloud service like dropbox anyway. Might not be an issue in your case, but I just wanted to highlight the issue.
Yikes! It's stuff like this that reminds me of how lucky I am to work for a smaller company that trusts its employees. We all get to choose a laptop that we are allowed to do pretty much anything we want with - except holding the company liable for what we do!

My two thoughts, are Knox (this'll let you encrypt folders with a password)

Or as others have suggested, using an encrypted disk image.

Good luck!
