No opinion of CEO

I worked at Mozilla as a contractor (Less than a year)

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.

    I have been working at Mozilla full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Smart, driven, and focused group working hard to change the world. I am fired up every single day and the group works very hard but are also like family.

    Cons

    Tough culture developed over years, and needs to change

    Advice to Management

    Let go of some of the past. Today is much different than when the first browser was introduced.

    I worked at Mozilla full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great pay and many great employees who really "get" the culture. Other benefits such as free snacks and regular "cantina" parties create a great vibe.

    Cons

    While in the past Mozilla has been open company-wide and eager to help its employees, its recent growth has changed the culture considerably and shed a lot of the better work force. A more closed environment has followed, one that shuns speaking up when something is wrong. A lot of "group think" exists now.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees and stop firing or delegitimizing your employees, even if they have a minority opinion. Discourage "group think."
