    I have been working at Red Hat full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Friendly and open company culture, the opportunity to contribute to a wide variety of projects and grow new skills by working collaboratively with other teams. Approachable and supportive management, deliberate effort to help employees grow. Mutually respectful workplace with a fun-loving culture.

    Cons

    If you like consistent structure, Red Hat might not work for you. Process changes, tool changes, reorganizations, and growth are pretty much a constant factor in day-to-day operations. Sometimes important resources are too scarce, so some strategic objectives are hard to accomplish. The upside of this is that the open and transparent prioritization of projects makes it clear WHY certain things cannot be accomplished within a desired time frame.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work and try to consistently align on objectives - sometimes different teams have different goals that come into conflict, and resolving or compromising to move forward and continuously improve is the best approach.

    Interview

    I applied online and was contacted about a week later for a phone interview. It was a very professional and efficient process. Each round I moved on they explained every step thoroughly and what to expect going forward.
