    Current Employee - Software Engineer in San Francisco, CA

    I have been working at Mozilla full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Engineering driven culture
    Everyone can make a difference
    Everyone's opinions matter
    Travel or work abroad if you want it
    Embrace the remote worker
    Focused on innovation not rules and hierarchy
    It's not purely about profit and $$$, it's about furthering the open web while keeping Mozilla relevant.

    Cons

    Worker driven culture leads to some amount of chaos
    Consensus building can be slow
    Doing more will less people
    Communication isn't great as upper management isn't trying to control everything
    Hypocrisy and tension of ideals and reality

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay the course
    Talk to more people up and down the ladder of workers.

    I worked at Mozilla full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great mission and many great, highly intelligent people
    Great benefits and office perks
    Work/life balance is good
    If you are in the right department then this can be a great place to work

    Cons

    What used to be a great office environment has turned into major office politics as the company has grown and unfortunately this had lead to many great employees leaving.
    In certain departments people are promoted based on who whines the loudest or kisses up to management and are not based on performance, qualifications, experience, competence or achievements within the company
    Worst HR experience ever. They are NOT interested in your feedback and will not make time for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote people for the right reasons.
