    Pros

    You have a chance to make an impact

    Cons

    Being an open source company with open community and values, it might prove quite challenging to make a swift decision and the strategy is changing quite fast across departments.

    Advice to Management

    Find ways to improve the collaboration across various departments, adopt shadowing principles and allow people to explore and grow.

    I worked at Red Hat full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Paid well...pretty free to do what you want office near to house..they provided staff with toilets

    Cons

    often promoting management to those with no management skills and often with no people skills as well. Management living in a bubble, incredibly arrogant towards staff making the working environment pretty dreadful.

    Advice to Management

    treat people like human beings, look forward to a comprehensive and well time restructure under new ownership next year. You promote an open and inclusive culture but in reality harbour one of the least inclusive and welcoming organisations I have ever worked for.

    I have been working at Red Hat full-time

    Pros

    Red Hat has a skilled sales & technical team and flexible working hours & locations.

    Cons

    EMEA & country management team are lacking in strategy and leadership. Red Hat doesn't pay salaries in line with the market and isn't interested in supporting career progression.

    Collaboration, Sharing , flexible time, friendly people and environmental
    Company really take good care of their employees

    Cons

    Some times it's difficult to get people from different times to do something together , although we are getting better in doing this

    Advice to Management

    Management it's always listening to the team, openly for ideas, helpfully on get people to archives their goals such as promotion, participate in events and conferences, do training and personal development which can be done from home
    Then only thing I have to say it's just keep up the excellent work.
