I have been working at Red Hat full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

- Great work/life balance.
- Ability to contribute to open source projects.
- Has the welfare of its customers in mind.

Cons

* Company has grown beyond its initial roots. It has crossed $1B in revenue last year. Now revenue trumps culture. Company can get short sighted.
* Either Engineering calls the shots or management calls the shots. There is a clear divide between management and engineers. No intermingling.

Advice to Management

- Promote people often.
- Have a yard stick for management particularly product management.

    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.
