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

    Pros

    Working Environment: fun, fast-paced, opportunity to travel
    Free food on most days somewhere in the office
    Great office space

    Cons

    Low salary. Had to leave because it just wan't competitive enough.
    Promotions are based on who you are friends with-- not merit based.
    People in leadership never move-- and often have no idea what they are doing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better, competitive salary. Leadership needs to actually lead-- not be a part of the cool kids group.

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

    Pros

    Great work/life balance. The company has gone through a lot of growing pains, but still cares about the employees and culture. Still maintains the open source culture, which is not buttoned up and much more relaxed. Very collaborative environment, you build very good friendships here. Not micromanaged.

    Cons

    Finance and engineering run company still. Also very political. Promotions are not always given on merit, but instead on who your friend is.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not change compensation plans in the middle of the year. It is very discouraging to employees.
