I have been working at Red Hat full-time (More than a 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 Management

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

    I worked at Red Hat full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good compensation. Benefits are good. They invest in training people which is better than the industry norm.

    Cons

    Poor sales management. Lack of vision to grow company. It's a political albatross, make sure you kiss ass to management or there will be repercussions. RH looks for followers, not leaders. Sales management is the classic, 'Emperor wearing no clothes'....best to collect your (very well compensated) paycheck than try to make positive changes. Long term future is very dim once the maintenance renewals start slowing down.

    Advice to Management

    Pick a strategic direction and commit to it. The future looks bleak...how much more Unix is there to convert to Linux, and with Cloud, what is the strategy to drive revenue to $3B???
