Pros

The open culture at Red Hat is a real thing and is infused in all aspects of the business. Of course that does not mean that "every" decision is made by committee. Red Hat still has a business to run so this of course makes sense. The work Red Hat is doing is relevant, industry changing and innovative. Employees are passionate and willing to challenge one another to produce their best work.

Cons

Perks frequently do not extend beyond headquarters; benefits package is standard though does not hold a candle to other hot technology companies

Advice to Management

Enhance benefits and extend Red Hat culture beyond headquarters.

    Pros

    Culture, work life balance, pay, the people..........I could go on and on, I've been with Red Hat over 6yrs and can't think of ever leaving. Product innovation is great, customer service is superior to any other and management does a great job not getting in our way.

    Cons

    some turnover in Sr. Leadership has cause for concern. New leadership at the top seems to not have the "open source" culture that is the back bone of this organization. Giving it time, but could be cause for future concern that some want Red Hat to be like IBM and Oracle.

    Advice to Management

    Remember where we came from, from a culture prospective. So many diverse products w/separate BU's, might be a good idea to have a single unit that connects all BU's together.
