I have been working at Red Hat full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

It's awesome to work with everyone around you engrossed in building a better software company. Management is pretty transparent, and decisions are made fairly quickly.

Cons

If you work remotely, things lik the FMLA do not apply to you in some cases. This is a Con for any company, though.

Advice to Management

More accountability and a bit better compensation would go a long way to not only retaining key employees, but acquiring new ones.

    I have been working at Red Hat full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    * Collaborative environment where you can work with very smart people
    * Challenges you to evaluate and improve your own ideas to solve problems
    * With not much effort you can interact with people across the company
    * Opportunities for career enhancing training

    Cons

    * Like a small company, often struggling to do a lot with few resources or people
    * Like a big company, starting to experience some drag from processes that haven't kept up with growth
    * Some office-culture differences across certain geos can be challenging

    Advice to Management

    More attention to preserving culture is needed; we have too little leadership in that area and too much lip service. However, upper management's improved focus on precise opportunities and strategy is a good thing overall and helps direct efforts across the company.
