Approves of CEO

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

Pros

- Very flexible culture. You can work from home and depending of your manager you can work in pretty much whatever you want.
- A lot of travel to different places in the world.
- Extremely smart people all over.
- Fairly flat organization and ability to work in cross functional projects.

Cons

- Lack of clear vision for the future. The most important thing keeps changing every quarter.
- Old guard vs new guard conflict.
- Leadership keeps creating fires and crisis around Firefox OS. They gave up control of our future to carriers.
- No Marketing leadership. Very engineering driven organization in a commoditized industry.
- No CEO. 6 C levels have left in the past year.
- Lots of middle managers that add little to no value.
- Global organization with teams spread across the globe. Anything that requires multiple people tends to be slow, very slow.
- Consensus driven work. Getting things done is very, very time consuming.
- Very little opportunity to change teams.

Advice to Management

- Due diligence of teams and middle managers. Particularly at the Director level, there's a lot of wasted resources.
- Keep focusing on few products that can have the largest impact.
