    I have been working at Red Hat full-time for more than 8 years


    Flexible work environment, fantastic attitude amongst most of the employees, excellent corporate leadership including CEO, CFO, and CIO


    On occasion, like most companies, there is a bit of politics going on. Not near as bad as many companies I have been at though.

    Positive Outlook
