I worked at Red Hat

Pros

Great opportunities for learning, good benefits, great people!

Cons

It's easy to get lost in a place like RedHat. If you're a consultants you are expected to be 'on the road' nearly 100% of the time. If you go to work there and be a consultant expect to be living in cheap hotels and eating on a low end budget. You wouldn't believe some of the crummy hotels I had to stay at. Business travel is bad enough to begin with, fighting with a rat to keep yoru snickers bar in the hotel room is just too much on top!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Consultants are people too, with homes and families; understand the need for some balance between work and life.

    I have been working at Red Hat

    Pros

    The recruiter was very diligent in getting back to me about the status of the role which is rare in times like this where jobs are always going back and forth between open or closed

    Cons

    The jobs are always open or closed and that stinks but I think every employer to an extent is in the same situation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a hiring plan together and stick with it
