Great culture! Very bright people. Amazing passion!

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
San Francisco, CA

I have been working at Mozilla as a contractor for more than a year

ProsThe 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.

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

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep 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!

Best Job Evar

Software Engineer (Current Employee)
San Francisco, CA

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

ProsEngineering 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.

ConsWorker 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 Senior ManagementStay the course
Talk to more people up and down the ladder of workers.

I'm a short-timer, but it's the best place I've ever worked

Software Engineer (Current Employee)
San Francisco, CA

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

Prosworker autonomy
respect
really thinks about doing what's right not just products for money
decency
room for conflicting opinions, maybe not as much as before
actually consider things like accessibility, every user
Firefox OS has a lot of potential

Consnot a lot of management makes leaves holes in process. Things can fall through the cracks. But it can also be an opportunity for people to take on different roles.

Advice to Senior ManagementI think we're on the right track.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
