I have been working with this company for 3 to 4 years now and I love the flexibility, how people share knowledge and how important knowing about what you do is for them. Unfortunately it is growing quickly and a lot of those values are getting lost.

Red Hat is one of the best companies to work in. There is a lot of room for personal growth. Red Hat is a place that promotes inclusion, diversity, innovation, collaboration, client focus and so much more. I've been here for almost 3 years, worked in two different teams and I've always had fantastic managers and amazing co-workers. The open PTO plan is awesome, and something most companies should really adopt. I very much appreciate and enjoy our work from home flexibility and flexible work hours (within reason). Compensation could be improved a bit, but total benefits are really decent. The way Red Hat has handled COVID and other recent events truly amaze me. Our SLT really cares about us as employees and as people and I appreciate the level of transparency above many other qualities. I will be a happy employee of Red Hat for as long as they want me!
Pros
Free Drinks, Elevnsies on Friday and many more
Cons
New crop of management are not up to standard

There are many great people at Red Hat. Unfortunately I ended up with a nasty condescending manager with very little technical background in security. He hired me as a cloud security & deployment engineer then pulled a bait and switch on me and gave me an auditor's job. He then rated my performance on the new role he gave me with no previous audit experience. It was a disaster working for him. I never got to perform the role I interviewed for at Red Hat. So buyer beware.

Red Hat likes to boast about it's culture but it's slowly fading. I feel the atmosphere is relaxed with great people but management needs a huge Improvement. They need to look at people skills as a high priority rather than promoting someone into that position because they've been there a long time.

Other than that, the Company provides great benefits and the staff are spolit in terms of the snack programme, events, peer to peer recognition program etc.

Fast-paced company, not extremely inclusive but working towards diversity. There is an emphasis on technical knowledge here and there are expectations to learn the product portfolio quickly

As this was just a week placement I didn't really get much work to do but it helped me to learn about the working environment and the stresses of commuting to work everyday.
