    Pros

    Everyone cares about what they are working on-- they're the best and the brightest

    Cons

    While all Mozillians are quite friendly, there are definitely "tribes" that don't mix as often as you'd hope

    I worked at Mozilla as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Great values: everyone is so driven and focused on the Mozilla mission.
    Fantastic benefits: free lunch on Mondays, free snacks, free laptop for interns.
    Relaxed work environment and close-knit teams.

    Cons

    Management and projects somewhat messy due to the pivot towards Firefox OS, but getting better.
    Sometimes unsure of what to do
    Somewhat corporate, lacking the more startup feel common to other companies in the Valley.

    I have been working at Mozilla as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    Great work culture. Eternal start-up. Cool technologies

    Cons

    Quirky at times. Very difficult for contractors to get assimilated. Many of the original greats have left the company now. The great chairman Baker is not the chairman now.

    I worked at Mozilla as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    The transparency and public openness of the organization meant that I could share my work with the world in a way possible at very few other places.

    Cons

    At least right now, the products feel like they're playing catch-up, and the old community love seems to have dwindled.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on what defines Mozilla: Freedom, Openness, and the community. Build great product based on those, not just comparing yourself to others.
