Great products and company. New technologies so there are challenges from time to time. But great company culture and work life balance for remote workers.

Great place to work
Manager Quality Engineering (Current Employee), Raleigh, NCFebruary 6, 2015
Pros: good pay, benefits, open source, technology
Cons: culture split brain
Over all Red Hat is a great place to work, but it isn't without its problems and those problems vary from group to group. Salary and benefits are on par for the area but other tech companies seem to take the amenities a bit farther.

Extremely good engineers, poor management.
IT Consultant (Former Employee), Portland, ORDecember 18, 2014
My colleagues were fantastic engineers. Management is lacking. No career advancement unless you live in Raleigh or Mountain View. 100% travel is very tiring.

Productive and fun workplace with ping pong table
Jr Systems Administrator (Former Employee), Westford, MAJuly 8, 2014
Pros: Red Hat is committed to open source development and if you want to work in that environment and not have a company hassle you about participating in the open source community, Red Hat is good.

cons: Very weak regional office representation. Weak brand identity in the software industry. Confusion among customers about what Red Hat does (Linux? JBoss? Something with Cloud?). Little to no recognition for significant project contributions. Low pay for the industry and very low raises. No guidance for career path and impossible internal mobility.

Technical Project Manager (Current Employee), Raleigh, NCMarch 20, 2014
Red Hat is a dynamic and passionate place to work. They believe in their employees and promote from within. Work life balance is great as well. They promote training, either internally in their own University courses, or externally to encourage employees to grow their career.

Internal Audit Associate (Current Employee), Raleigh, NCAugust 19, 2013
Pros: challenging work, company culture
Red Hat is a fast paced and highly energized work environment. The workload was challenging yet proved incredibly fascinating. Having assets on a global scale (across all time zones), Red Hat constantly had operations in need of or under review.

Great people and culture, but low compensation
Associate Consultant (Current Employee), Mountain View, CAJuly 25, 2013
Pros: cool people, travel, different problem sets
Cons: pay
Nothing is really typical about Red Hat consulting. Being a jack-of-all-trades is critical to succeed, as it is unlikely that you will be put on only projects based around one technology. It was not uncommon to be told to ramp up on certain things, only to be told a week later that plans changed, and instead you have a few days to learn a totally new thing.
The job pushes you quickly into responsibility, as it was commonplace to begin client interactions within days of starting. Definitely not a good job for the ultra-shy.
The managers in the West are great people. Always fun to be around, and they do listen. However, other consultants have gotten tossed under the bus when managers failed to adequately plan. Seems to not happen often, but it does happen.
Hardest part of this job can sometimes be the travel, some consultants have traveled for multiple months, but it is usually the constantly changing skillset that is hard. Sometimes, it can be difficult to really learn anything new, as constant switching between new things is required. Breadth, not depth.
Great job coming out of college and gives good insight into the world of consulting. Pay is not great, quarterly bonuses don't make up enough of the difference in salary vs the rest of Silicon Valley. Highly recommended job for a college student to get their feet wet in consulting, but leaving after a year or two is fiscally responsible.

Company in Transition
Local Marketing Manager (Former Employee), Mountain View, CAJune 20, 2013
Pros: passion around products, rapid growth
Cons: marketing
When I started with Red Hat, the company was full of heart, with great culture. It has been growing rapidly for many years now and was a fantastic place to work until about the past year, as the company hit a point where they are transitioning from that collaborative, high energy company to a company trying to keep up with their past growth and move to the next phase.

I was given the opportunities to advance and grow in my careers. Was able to work with really great people.

Human Resources (Current Employee), Raleigh, NCSeptember 28, 2012
Pros: younger workforce, driven employees, passionate employees, free snacks, lots of networking opportunities
Cons: little/no flexible work options, except for favorites
Overall a great company. Growing so fast that processes are often not yet in place, so be willing to streamline and improve processes as you go along. Lots of opportunity for growth, depending on where in the company you are located.

Smoke and Mirrors
Professional (Former Employee), Raleigh, NCSeptember 26, 2012
Pros: free snacks
Cons: short sighted rouge managment
Fun place and great culture is the bait, but once in things change rapidly to a culture of fear and uncertanty. This is a great place to work if you don't care about future growth or job security.
