    I worked at Mozilla full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    • Great, smart people
    • Ability to work on products that are used by millions
    • Incredibly dedicated community
    • Ability to travel and work remotely
    • Good compensation for working in open source
    • More transparent than other companies with the ability to have an open dialogue with management and co-workers.

    Cons

    • Because of the work remotely policy offices (at least in the Bay Area) were empty. If you like to work in person with your co-workers you will struggle here.
    • Far more corporate and "big company" than I expected with all the politics, bureaucracy and indecision I had experienced at large companies I had worked for.
    • Strategy on my own product and company overall was unclear. This made the culture tense and sometimes toxic.
    • Too many things to do and not enough resources.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    • Re-evaluate workspaces in San Francisco and Mountain View and either scale down facilities or think of other ways (splitting space with small companies, creating a co-working space, etc.) so offices are more full and lively.
    • Make sure that cultural fit is a high priority for hiring.
    • Quit acting scared and fear-based. Build morale.
    • Focus on where Mozilla can have an impact instead of trying to partner with strange bedfellows (operators) or directly competing with much bigger companies with thick pockets (Google).
    • Figure out what the future is going to look like and aim there. Don't over invest in legacy products (browser).
