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

Pros

Every open-minded and creative culture. Truly values their employees. After all opensource is about community. Redhat even as a gowning company keep the core values of source strong.

Cons

Very tech savy company. Those that like to use MS word and Outlook for mail may find it quite different.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep empowering the community developers.

    I worked at Red Hat full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company as a hole, has great people and some great goals. If you work in Engineering, fantastic place to work. People who believe in what they are doing and love it. When I first began working there, I really enjoyed it, but things really went down hill.

    Cons

    The IT department is full of incompetent people and people who are there due to nepotism. I really feel sad at having to say this, but the current CIO has really dragged the place down. They implemented ITIL and have generally preferred closed source solutions over ones that Red Hat itself sells. Just completely insane that they would put in place closed source solutions that specifically compete with Red Hat products.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Replace all of the IT management.

    Growing pains from a startup to billion+ dollar business.

    Don't let arbitrary business rules/processes (ones we've created) get in the way of innovating our organizational model.
