Approves of CEO

Pros

worker autonomy
respect
really thinks about doing what's right not just products for money
decency
room for conflicting opinions, maybe not as much as before
actually consider things like accessibility, every user
Firefox OS has a lot of potential

Cons

not a lot of management makes leaves holes in process. Things can fall through the cracks. But it can also be an opportunity for people to take on different roles.

Advice to Management

I think we're on the right track.

    Pros

    Excellent coworkers. All are very skilled and proactive. There is also a good deal of trust between management and developers. No micro-managing to speak of.

    Cons

    * 100% telecommuting can be tough. Be sure you realize what all that entails (find a productive workspace)
    * Difficult to know what others are working on

    Advice to Management

    Try virtual Kan Ban to give more transparency to the entire team.
