    Pros

    Basically, you get paid to do what you love. You get a lot of freedom to propose projects that improve the web, and often support to do them. People are top-notch.

    Cons

    The old guard are awesome. The middle-guard have entitlement issues, as they seem to feel free to work on anything they want and continue to get paid. There's a mission, guys. Let's do the mission. And get paid.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing. Mission. Product. Chris Beard, you rock.

    I have been working at Mozilla as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    The culture of the company is amazing. Every single person in the organization is extremely passionate about each and every project he/she is on. The leaders are very transparent with their teams and this leads to trust. All individual contributors are given a large runway and are given the chance to succeed or fail. My director truly cares about the team and pushes for growth. Time and time again he's been able to provide opportunities for that growth. Snacks drinks are always provided. Lunch is provided on Mondays.

    Jay has been amazing leading Mozilla. He is a great leader who people want to follow.

    Cons

    There have been some changes with company direction (not necessarily a bad thing). There are some who are wary about the new direction.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep encouraging your leaders (not just in the sense of managers) and your evangelists. Mozilla is an amazing place with amazing people, continue to give them that space to grow. Continue being transparent with employees and users. We will continue to change the world!
