Pros

Plenty of opportunities for growth if you're willing to work hard. Definitely a meritocracy. The people are great and are willing to work together to accomplish a goal.

Cons

The company is growing fast, and finding it difficult to balance the agility of a small company, with the presence and reputation as a large company. Sometime difficult to accomplish goals because there are so many concurrent projects ongoing, it's not always obvious the priorities between them.

    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.
