    Pros

    Excellent coworkers. All are very skilled and proactive. There is also a good deal of trust between management and developers. No micro-managing to speak of.

    Cons

    * 100% telecommuting can be tough. Be sure you realize what all that entails (find a productive workspace)
    * Difficult to know what others are working on

    Advice to Management

    Try virtual Kan Ban to give more transparency to the entire team.

    Pros

    Great mission, smart and passionate people, flexible work environment, competitive compensation.

    Cons

    ambiguous leadership, poor managerial skills, corporate HR department, corporate culture unlike most Bay Area software and Internet companies, declining innovation

    Advice to Management

    Bring back the creative process by throwing out the new corporate culture. Mozilla is loosing its identity and has no new innovations to carry it forward for another 10 years. The browser is your one hit and so far no new ideas have emerged as a new flagship product.

     Review your new senior leadership structure and don't be afraid to clean house! Mozilla is growing and the needs are changing. Make sure each leader hired comes from true open source backgrounds so that values and the culture don't become replaced with corporate idealism (like the very corporate HR department).
