    Pros

    Awesome culture, great people, just a great company to work for

    Cons

    Compensation is not that of an Enterprise Software Company

    Advice to Management

    Do not try to change the culture, we are open source not a proprietary software company. Stop trying to turn us into one!

    I worked at Red Hat full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good compensation.
    Benefits are good.
    They invest in training people which is better than the industry norm.

    Cons

    Poor sales management.
    Lack of vision to grow company.
    It's a political albatross, make sure you kiss ass to management or there will be repercussions.
    RH looks for followers, not leaders. Sales management is the classic, 'Emperor wearing no clothes'....best to collect your (very well compensated) paycheck than try to make positive changes.
    Long term future is very dim once the maintenance renewals start slowing down.

    Advice to Management

    Pick a strategic direction and commit to it. The future looks bleak...how much more Unix is there to convert to Linux, and with Cloud, what is the strategy to drive revenue to $3B???
