      Pros

      This company lives and breathes open source. This is a collaborative, transparent place to work. The company really cares about you as a person.

      Cons

      There have been some growing pains. Some parts of the company act like a small company and some parts are very “corporate”.

      Pros

      I have worked for many other companies in the past but Red Hat has been by far the best I have worked for. The culture seems to really be an open culture where you can be 100% yourself and share your thoughts openly without fear of retaliation.

      Cons

      Expected growing pains of a startup growing into a full organization.

      Pros

      Great place to work with unlimited opportunities to travel and grow your career. Executives are forward thinking and the manager's are understanding when it comes to work flexibility. Great benefits and a fast paced environment where you are always learning something new.;

      Cons

      The regular redundent and slow processes that come with any large company. The quick growth and constant hiring adds to other growing pains that are easy to deal with.

      Pros

      Great benefits, competitive pay, company is growing fast, lots of room to grow as an employee, and more focused on open source than any other company I've come across.

      Cons

      Some growing pains, specifically the lack of clear organization. They are quickly addressing this, but the network of who reports to whom and who is the go-to person for certain questions or actions is not transparent and often requires directly asking multiple people for help just to find the right person for a question/job.
