    Pros

    Win the management lottery and you get a vibrant team with healthy motivations.
    Strong (non-cash) benefits.
    CEO and Executive Chair deserve an amazing amount of respect. They are what made Mozilla great.

    Cons

    Disasterous management philosophies and approach.
    Employee morale is at the lowest I've seen in almost 8 years. Punitive management styles tear down all motivation.
    HR is ineffective, if not outright deceitful.
    Extremely inconsistent application of company culture. Some employees get to attend industry conferences or travel to meet the rest of their team for work weeks, others have it outright banned by their management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember that you're managing human beings, not resources. Don't punish employees for not behaving exactly like the gigantic engineering organization you just left at your last company. The latest Gartner-blessed best practice for a 10,000 person company does not translate to a 6 person team. Learn how to lead instead of constantly regurgitating something you read last week in a book. Some employees are burdened with 20+ hours of administrative meetings each week while being criticized for lack of output.
