Great place to work BUT senior management gets in the way of progress.

I have been working at Red Hat

ProsCulture drives proactive, results-driven behavior. Focus on independent actions and individual accountability. Reasonably flexible work environment.

ConsNeed fresh blood esp in management. "Old Guard" is suffocating and has lead to nepotism.
Change is slow coming and hard won.
For a still small-ish company, compared to competitors like Oracle, MSFT, and IBM, the politics are astounding.
Poor, ineffective managers are allowed to continue in their rolls without being replaced or re-trained.

Advice to Senior ManagementInvest in hiring and training great managers, they make (or break) the employment experience!

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
