Lots of great technical folks but poorly managed
Red Hat Consulting (Former Employee) –  Raleigh, NCJune 20, 2017
Good company overall but too focused on revenue and growth instead of caring about the people who work there. Has potential to be a great company but management doesn't value its employees as they should. Too many decisions are still being made in silos and by the "old boys club".
Pros
Free snacks, great training, great technical people
Cons
Management, do not place value on each employee

Manager (Current Employee) –  Raleigh, NCMay 30, 2017
Red Hat is a great company to work for. There is a good company culture and many people work there for many years at a time. The company is always growing and changing, so no day is like the last.

Project Manager, Production and Design (Current Employee) –  Raleigh, NCMay 8, 2017
I am working with some of the most talented people I've ever met. These people have taught me critical communication, professionalism, working in the RH culture, and leadership. Management has changed several times in the 8 years I've worked here, but all were transparent transitions with company objectives explained and integrated. The best part of the day comes when conversations with other associates relate that clients are in awe of the design and video work we do. Mkes me smile wide! The hardest part of the job is not being able to get everything done in one day, but we still manage to meet deadlines. The culture is collaborative and process driven, keeps us organized and on track.
Pros
transparency, benefits, onsite cafeteria
Cons
worked long hours

Not as awesome as they portray
Senior Application Architect (Current Employee) –  Raleigh, NCApril 11, 2017
The company is suffering from lack of decision making and pitifully inefficient lower managers. The company culture is almost a religion and you had better tow the line. The work environment is great, from coworker and facilities perspective. But in the last few months upper management has been paralyzed by unexpected quarterly results, lack of vision, and staff turnover. If you are a heads-down drone you won't care. But if you are involved in the success of your company these factors are simply maddening.
Pros
Many perks, great atmosphere, excellent facilities
Cons
Ineffective management, wasteful HR, activist culture

IT Manager (Current Employee) –  Raleigh, NCApril 4, 2017
Unique culture and a great model for how a socialist concept of open source can thrive in a capitalist world. The collaborative and open mind approach only serves to broaden your professional experience in the best possible way.

Order Entry Administrator III (Former Employee) –  Raleigh, NCAugust 19, 2016
This is a good company, but you have to be on the right team. For me, there was a lot of micro-management; almost to the point that it controlled your personal life. I worked with good people, however. The hours were very long at certain time periods, i.e. month end, quarter end. They did give good incentives such as, employeee events etc.
Pros
Free food and snacks
Cons
