I have been working at Mozilla full-time (more than 5 years)Pros
Win the management lottery and you get a vibrant team with healthy motivations.
Strong (non-cash) benefits.
CEO and Executive Chair deserve an amazing amount of respect. They are what made Mozilla great.Cons
Disasterous management philosophies and approach.
Employee morale is at the lowest I've seen in almost 8 years. Punitive management styles tear down all motivation.
HR is ineffective, if not outright deceitful.

The latest Gartner-blessed best practice for a 10,000 person company does not translate to a 6 person team. Learn how to lead instead of constantly regurgitating something you read last week in a book. Some employees are burdened with 20+ hours of administrative meetings each week while being criticized for lack of output.Doesn't RecommendNegative OutlookApproves of CEO
