I worked at Mozilla full-time (More than a year)
- Great job for just out of school.
- Excellent engineers. You can learn a lot from them.
- Mission is very appealing, though the organization's alignment to it is weak at times.
- Fantastic benefits, compensation, and work-life balance.
- Lots of politics.
- Organizations are not very cohesive and don't work together well. I can't even count how many times I heard "that's not in my quarterly goals" or "we don't have resources for that" after making reasonable requests.
- Management structure is strange and hard to understand. As someone who wanted to work his way up, I couldn't figure out how.
Advice to Management
- Focus on a few core efforts and do them really well.
- Do a better job of supporting excellent performers and create more paths upward.
I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Mozilla in March 2017.
The process as a whole was actually very nice and I enjoyed speaking with a wide range of people. I believe I got to the hiring manager stage. The questions were sometimes difficult, which is to be expected, but all the interviewers were pleasant to speak with and answered any questions I had. The most unique thing about this interview versus others is the speed of my interviews being scheduled, typically within a few hours of me submitting my availability, and the happy/kind energy associated with the scheduler (phone and email). That is rare to find, especially in the tech industry, and helped me see the kind of people Mozilla embodies.
