    Former Employee - Software Engineer in Mountain View, CA

    I worked at Mozilla as an intern (less than an 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.

    I have been working at Mozilla full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Transparency and flexibility. The company is becoming a corporation but it retains a lot of the values of the start-up that it was and the community focus is great. It's a great place if you want to take it easy. Ability to work from home with no questions.

    Cons

    The company is trying to figure out what he wants to do. There's a change on focus every month and projects that are in the process to be staffed get deprioritized leaving people with no projects until they can figure out what to do next. Middle management doesn't have the experience to lead the organization, a lot of them have been promoted from the community with no real skill set. Senior employees and executives are leaving and the morale of the company is destroyed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Set clear goals and focus on a strategy for at least a year before pivoting again. Rise the bar at the Director level and monitor low performers.
