We are new to Sharepoint and trying not to make too many mistakes.

All the advise on the web suggests you should not put folders within libraries.

The first part of our business I want to move is our recruitment arm.  It's candidate folder has 1785 folders containing 11,516 files.  These are all on dropbox at the moment.  Our clients folder is a little smaller, but not that much smaller.

I need all these files to be available.   I believe most of the actual data access will be via Onedrive for Business.  
 
Why can't I just create a Candidate Library and move all folders and files across in their current structure?  What is the long term impact of that design?
