The good news is that there has been a recent influx of more women into leadership positions - and hopefully that will have a trickle down affect and change things. The bad news is that these leaders were all hired externally; internally, it is very difficult to get the same recognition, respect, and forward movement as a female. Granted, this is hard at Mozilla in general (promotions are rare, career advancement is totally unclear and based largely on favoritism), but it's definitely harder for women, as this is a largely engineering-driven company. There are a lot of women in Marketing, which the rest of the company doesn't take seriously. However, you CAN make asks for flexible hours and work arrangements, and Mozilla is great in that respect. Just don't expect to be getting promoted anytime soon. Mozilla has recently launched a big "diversity and inclusion" program and likes to pay lip service to these progressive things, but it's really just that. Most of the people within the company (esp the male majority) roll their eyes at it, and it's more of an optics thing than about bringing any real change. Mozilla is a HIGHLY polotical environment. The truth is, much of the company, including people in HR, will treat women in a degrading fashion and there isn't much you can do about it.
I watched skilled women be overlooked for advancement repeatedly. I was criticized by my supervisor with stunningly gendered words. At organization events, drinking culture was so prevalent that men in positions of power would actively pressure female employees to drink. The thing is, I LOVED working for the Mozilla Foundation, in theory. The mission and the work were incredible. But the dudes ranged from great to just awful.
Mozilla's software developers may be as lopsidedly male as most, but I had only great experiences as an intern.
