I have been working at Mozilla full-time for less than a year

Pros

worker autonomy
respect
really thinks about doing what's right not just products for money
decency
room for conflicting opinions, maybe not as much as before
actually consider things like accessibility, every user
Firefox OS has a lot of potential

Cons

not a lot of management makes leaves holes in process. Things can fall through the cracks. But it can also be an opportunity for people to take on different roles.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I think we're on the right track.

    I have been working at Mozilla full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Relaxed atmosphere. Good place if you want to have a good work/life balance.
    - Friendly coworkers and the ability to work with a passionate community
    - Office locations are premium and you can work from wherever you want.
    - Good benefits package

    Cons

    - Chaos and lack of direction.
    - Firefox is not a priority anymore. Firefox OS (B2G) has killed the culture. Now we are playing by the carrier's rules. If you don't work in Firefox OS expect no visibility of your work. And if you work in Firefox OS expect no understanding of what's happening and when.
    - In the last year we have hired way too many corporate leaders who are trying to change how things work. Long time Mozillians are leaving and the ones who stay don't seem really happy.
    - This is not the place for you if you want to innovate and launch new products. Only Firefox OS matters and we don't control the go to market.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Regain control over Firefox OS. Carriers need us as much as we need them. Go back to the roots and hire Executives with open source and entrepreneurial background.

    I have been working at Mozilla full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Working for a humanitarian mission while being properly compensated is possibly unique to Mozilla.

    Cons

    Starting to get big and we'll need to watch for signs of silos.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Protect and nurture the "one team" feeling.
