Pros
  • you can work on open source projects you love (in 202 reviews)

  • Great work life balance all the time (in 64 reviews)

Cons
  • If you're not an engineer with a passion for open source Red Hat is not unlike any other company (in 62 reviews)

  • More importantly at least for me: The amazing culture and work life balance more than made up for any doller that I might have been sacrificing (in 22 reviews)

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

    Pros

    Solid products and an excellent technical team to help build and support the sales efforts.

    Cons

    Compensation is in the middle to low range - open source is not as popular in Canada as it is in the US so your commission is going to suffer. Canadian operation has not had anywhere near the same level of success as the US. The Canadian Sales Management team is disappointing at best..

    Advice to Management

    I hate to say it but the US should take over management of the Canadian Operation. Morale is very low under the current Executive.

    Free food, chilled atmosphere, smart people.
