    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Mozilla (Less than a year)

    Pros

    1. Amazing people and good technology to work with in a very cool office.
    2. Free Macbook pro (you get to to keep it after the internship!).
    3. Unlimited food and drink with an incredible amount of choice.

    Cons

    1. Full time positions are few and far between. Very few interns get a return offer. You have to network very very well if you want to know where the positions are and apply for them on your own.
    2. Vision for the company seems to have caused a rift in the ranks.

    Negative Outlook

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

    Pros

    Great people, casual, informal culture. Excellent benefits. Excellent salary. Flexible schedule. Ability to speak your mind and "share" about everything in and outside of Mozilla

    Cons

    Strong sense of entitlement from many employees. Working in a distributed, open-source fashion across different geos and remote working situations can be hugely challenging but also hugely rewarding.

    Advice to Management

    Not sure that returning to "start-up days" and the ways things were done in the past to bring back energy is the right way to go. Also all employees, no matter how motivated and talented, could benefit by being mentored by their manager. It gets old to be constantly told to "create your own path."


  4. "Mozilla attracts people that want to do the right thing for the world"

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    open source work, non-profit, tons of volunteers. people here are passionate about their work. The environment is fun and lively, and although corporate, its still a flexible and employee-driven environment. We build the best browser in the world, and everyone is proud of it.

    Cons

    it can be disorganized and meritocratic. The loudest voice wins. Also, there arent official Project or program managers, so it can be disorderly at times. It can be development driven, which isn't always the best choices.

    Advice to Management

    continue to hear people out as you have. Keep your employees informed about what other competitors are doing. not enough team morale events.
