I have been working at Red Hat full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

- face paced
- tons of internal mobility
- low tolerance for non-performers
- growing company

Cons

- not enough investment... doesn't match pace of growth
- financial recognition and reward trails efforts
- tendency to "squeeze too much blood out of the turnips" You can have work-life balance, but you have to insist on it.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Invest. The business is being run too lean and the end result is people getting ground down. I am fairly senior at Red Hat and just don't understand the lack of investment.

    I worked at Red Hat full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Very open and you can learn a lot and work your way up if you are determined and hard working.

    Cons

    There can be a lot of bickering inside the company, especially between sales and support, but if you just ignore that and work hard it won't really affect you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop relying on being an open source company to bring in people and using it as an excuse to not pay competitively. Red Hat is a great way to start a career in Open Source, but as soon as you are established look somewhere else to be paid what you are worth.

    Pros

    Great culture and very rewarding environment...

    Cons

    Achieving a good work/life balance is one of the hardest things about being at Red Hat...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Benefits are OK, but certainly not leading the industry...
