    I worked at Red Hat full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The best part about working at Red Hat is being able to collaborate with highly intelligent and passionate colleagues. It is an environment which encourages learning and development. Employees are treated as adults and trusted to manage own schedules.

    Cons

    Some silos make it difficult to cooperate across different departments and geographies. However Red Hat is still in the midst of transitioning to a large company, so with proper management its internal procedures should catch up eventually.
