    Current Employee - Manager in Mountain View, CA

    I have been working at Mozilla

    Pros

    - "Start up" culture feel, but with solid real-world stability
    - Company committed to doing The Right Thing
    - Decisions are not driven only by money, but by "what would be the best user experience?"
    - Internally, dedication to doing things the right way (even if it means having to redo existing choices)
    - Not afraid to spend money (smartly)
    - Not afraid of funding wacky side projects if they have potential
    - Hiring policy: "We only hire rock stars"
    - Amazingly good benefits (all premiums covered, lots of neat perks)
    - Generous bonuses, paid quarterly (and, yeah, we actually get them every quarter)
    - Pathologically friendly to remote work arrangements
    - Open source-driven
    - HQ is in downtown Mountain View -- great restaurant selection nearby.
    - Company will provide whatever equipment you need to be comfortable & productive (weird mouse? done. high-end ergo chair? done. multiple monitors? done.)
    - Good parking situation
    - Free snacks, drinks, and lunch on Mondays
    - Friday cantinas (company-funded drinking)
    - Dogs at work

    Cons

    - So many people working remote can be a pain in the butt sometimes, but it's just an adjustment.
    - No stock (private corp owned by an NFP foundation)
    - The nature of "we'll try any technology if it's the right technology" sometimes causes a lot of different tools doing the same (or almost the same) thing in different places as each person/team gets to re-make the choice.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep being awesome.
