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

Pros

Able to work remotely on flexible hours. Management does a good job of keeping the red tape off you plate and just wants you to succeed.

Cons

If you are new to open source or just new to the company there are lot of things that should be listed in a beginners guide. Like how we use git or maven central. The knowledge is there it is just silo'ed. At least if you ask people are willing to share.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't let us down. :-) We depend on you as much as you depend on us.

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

    Pros

    * You can really learn a lot about linux here. And mastering Linux opens a lot of doors for future.
    * Most engineers here are very friendly, experienced and very resourceful.
    * Great life and work balance. Flexible working hours.

    Cons

    * Traditional development management style and release cycle (this could be good or bad depends on your own opinion)
    * Not enough training opportunities here, includes RedHat's own RHCE class (not enough class offered)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Innovation is slow, Red Hat should be a leader insteader of a follower
