    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.
