    I worked at Red Hat full-time

    Pros

    Good culture and growing company. Energetic and fun quarterly meetings!!

    Cons

    Several managers operate their department depending on their own personality traits. There is a known lack of professionalism on how they should motivate and train their employees. One manager consistently roams up and down the isles micro managing causing employee wagers on how often she will interrupt them daily. Another one would repeat confidential conversations with her subordinates for merely office gossip, causing tension within the workplace on how to respond/react. Drama galore!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create a consistency of management styles by requiring training classes on Personal Development/Communication, Coaching and Team Building, Business and Professional Skills among others. Review the turnovers in the last few years and understand something needs to be done for those who remain with the company.

    Pros

    Everything I do supports making Open Source Software available to folks who might not otherwise have access to this kind of tech.

    Cons

    Rapid growth brings growing pains. Not horrible, but there is still some pain.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Re-read "The Cathedral and the Bazaar" twice a year.
