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

    Pros

    Some of the smartest people I have ever worked with, and most of them are nice as well. I think virtually everyone at Red Hat that holds a technical job is there because they believe in the open source models.

    Cons

    Some managers are very out of touch.
    Sometimes it is hard to get things done because of so many strong opinions.
