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

Pros

A truly open and collaborative environment! Red Hat hires smart people, and senior management is very strategic and driven. Red Hat is a GREAT place to work!

Cons

Sometimes because everyone gets to share their $0.02 is slows down a project, but at the end of the day you usually with a better, more informed decision at the end of the day.

    I have been working at Red Hat full-time for 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.
