Red Hat Newark, NJ (US) isn't hiring right now. Check out all Red Hat jobs
I worked at Red Hat (More than 10 years)
Great company, great staffers in engineering and platform, middleware and in the sales teams. How they manage to create such output when they're led so badly is a massive credit to them.
Red Hat right now still enjoys a good reputation in the OS space but as this is now dropping hugely in the world of containers and Cloud where the OS layer is nowhere near as important it's going to be a fight and it's both technology and fiduciary and I worry for their relevance positioning.
Good offices, good remote worker support and good HR team who were utterly caned by the idiot former CFO who thought he could repeat Cisco and make this a fit company.
Thankfully the utterly incompetent CFO is now gone but a HUGE amount of poor middle management and regional directors remain. The board need to start culling people. Now, not in 18 months and only taking a look at themselves and seeing where strategic management has failed will breed new innovative repeatable success. Broken processes (Compass ha... yes thats an utter joke) and other platforms fail to deliver to an overpaid Head of HR globally. The whole company lacks the color to change and fails to deliver its expectations because the board don't know what customers actually need. Summit proves this every year.
Advice to Management
YOU NEED TO CULL MANAGEMENT AND RESTEER THE COMPANY - NOW, you have no further rope to hang yourselves with. Outside Red Hat the company has a tarnished reputation as the new Oracle and Amazon are eating your breakfast, lunch and dinner.
