Red Hat practices what it preaches as a Free and Open Source Software Company. This is a big plus as you get feedback from folks in other organizations that the company partners with for many of the projects. That gives a much higher level of confidence that the way a problem is being approached is the correct one. It reminds me of the way we approach things in a scientific research environment. You have to meet requirements not only from your company but also from other teams on other companies and organizations.

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.
Pros
Cool people, travel, different problem sets
Cons
Pay

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.
Pros
Passion around products, rapid growth
Cons
Marketing
