Recommends
Positive Outlook
Approves of CEO

I have been working at Mozilla full-time (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 Management

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

    I worked at Mozilla full-time (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 Management

    Promote people for the right reasons.

    I worked at Mozilla full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good benefits
    Free food & snacks
    Somewhat flexible hours
    Commute friendly location

    Cons

    Chaotic (usually for no good reason)
    Balls get dropped easily
    Lack of real communication outside of engineering
    Too many "managers" who aren't really managing anything

    Advice to Management

    Look out for your employees in other areas of the business. They are suffering and there are a lot of inefficiencies.
