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

Pros

People are excited about the work they're doing. Lots of freedom to do the right thing. Open source mentality cuts out a lot (but not all) of the bureaucratic nonsense. The office and work environment are nice, modern and a lot of fun.

Cons

Lots of systems to work with, and not all of them are well-integrated, leading to patchwork business processes, questions about ownership, and some duplicated effort between teams.

    I have been working at Red Hat full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Red Hat is committed to open source development and if you want to work in that environment and not have a company hassle you about participating in the open source community, Red Hat is good.

    Cons

    Very weak regional office representation. Weak brand identity in the software industry. Confusion among customers about what Red Hat does (Linux? JBoss? Something with Cloud?). Little to no recognition for significant project contributions. Low pay for the industry and very low raises. No guidance for career path and impossible internal mobility.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase investment in associates. Pay and benefits should be more competitive for the industry. Guidance and plans should be in place for people wanting to grow their career. Internal mobility should be possible.
