Pros
  • you can work on open source projects you love (in 192 reviews)

  • Very good work/life balance (depends on your manager of course) (in 59 reviews)

Cons
  • The leadership seems to make open source a marketing gimmick to sell books (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 21 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.

    I worked at Red Hat as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    Red Hat provides its employees with a great working environment. In general, the people are very friendly and there is a strong sense of community within the company. The compensation and benefits are competitive. They are very flexible and are supportive in helping you balance your home and work life. I was pleasantly surprised by how interns are treated as regular employees.

    Cons

    A lot of the products that are developed do not directly bring profit to the company.
