Current Employee - Engineering Manager in Westford, MA

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

Pros

* Collaborative environment where you can work with very smart people
* Challenges you to evaluate and improve your own ideas to solve problems
* With not much effort you can interact with people across the company
* Opportunities for career enhancing training

Cons

* Like a small company, often struggling to do a lot with few resources or people
* Like a big company, starting to experience some drag from processes that haven't kept up with growth
* Some office-culture differences across certain geos can be challenging

Advice to ManagementAdvice

More attention to preserving culture is needed; we have too little leadership in that area and too much lip service. However, upper management's improved focus on precise opportunities and strategy is a good thing overall and helps direct efforts across the company.

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

    Pros

    Interesting technology, autonomy, small company feel with big company perks, working with some of the best technical minds in software, the sky is the limit for career growth.

    Cons

    Would be nice if travel was planned for more in advance. Seems like a lot of last minute decisions in that regard.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep killin' it!

    I have been working at Red Hat full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    A great environment for improvement. They value people who have a steep learning curve, and people that they see have potential. don't slack! It's still a pretty small company and your not just a cog in the wheel.

    Cons

    Not really any cons. I love it here, the people are great and we have a lot of things in common. The cultural fit is important since you will be working a lot in teams.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None.
