Pros

Extremely friendly and motivating people around who constantly push you to bring the best in you. You get lot of autonomy in work and learn a lot from its product suite.

Cons

Some processes get delayed like getting your h/w.

    Nice facility, but don't expect wages much better than Raleigh NC average

    I have been working at Red Hat full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great product, serious about trying to keep their culture unique. Good benefits.

    Cons

    HR expects Bay area folks to be happy with RDU class wages. Career path very limited if you are not in the RDU area.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward dedication, follow the company mantra, but realize that each geographic location has it's OWN strengths as well

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

    Pros

    Open Source. Lots of good people. Plenty of room for growth. Lots of offices, so you can move where you like. In tech circles, there is a certain amount of sex appeal. I.e. for a large multinational IT corporate, Red Hat has a lot better rep than Microsoft. Great servers, good pay, and lots of perks.

    Cons

    While we're technically "open source", we're not really. The business model is, put out great software with crappy documentation, then sell services. For my money, if I were starting a business, I'd go CentOS. Mind you, Red Hat is a necessary evil. CentOS wouldn't exist if someone didn't pay Red Hat to continually improve their product.

    If you hear "open source" and think cutting edge and open, go somewhere else. Red Hat is a major corporation and it's run like one.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have a lot of disenfranchised employees. Go back to the basics. Think culture over bottom line.
