    I worked at Red Hat full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Rarely do you get to work for a company where EVERYBODY is so friendly and willing to help. One big happy family and not in a cult-like way.

    Cons

    None which I could find.

    I have been working at Red Hat full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Brilliant colleagues, very smart, very helpful - there is a culture of helping each other across the company You can approach anyone at any level (starting with Jim Whitehurst) Lots of room to grow your role, or change roles You are positively encouraged to work on open source projects, and your contract even says you can work on ANY open source project (obviously, if it is not part of your day job - you need to do this in your own time) IT Helpdesk is actually worthy of the name (part of the helpfulness culture) Lots of chances to implement ideas to improve things for customers and colleagues Strong encouragement for volunteering (esp. STEM/STEAM) Access to engineering, product management, etc is excellent.

    Cons

    You need to be self-motivated - expecting "the company" to do things for you all the time will not work. Some of the internal systems and processes need improving but this is happening

    I have been working at Red Hat full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Snacks -Nice people (apart from management) - Great products and offerings

    Cons

    Over the last few years the culture has changed, they are always claiming to be this transparent company but that's not the case anymore, the channel team is probably the worst with over 5 people leaving in the last 6 months. Forget any flexibility, they are slowly taking away employee rights such as working from home and parental rights. My advice would be avoid the Commercial and Partner team within the UK.
