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

    Pros

    Good work life balance, flat hierarchy and you can discuss with your managers with regards to anything (even complaints) Cares about it’s employees, as seen from COVID-19 situation... announced mandatory WFH before other companies do it, and gave additional money to support WFH expenses Truly open source culture, where anyone can talk to anyone for anything

    Cons

    Project management in Consulting could be done better If you doing a certain Red Hat tech, you’ll probably keep doing it, which limits exposure to other tech (Red Hat tech profile is very expansive) Management hasn’t been replacing good Consultants who left (they are trying, but still unable to do it quickly). Entire consulting team has < 10 people who are with Red Hat for > 3 years. Pay is lower than market rate, which is one of the reasons why ppl are leaving

    I have been working at Red Hat full-time

    Pros

    Strong culture of it's own, everyone can have their say

    Cons

    You must really be brainwashed in order to adapt to it's culture. May not be really suitable for folks who have been used to big MNCs. Many meetings and long decision making process. Lots of information to process just for one topic.
