I have been working at Red Hat full-time (Less than a year)
This place is a great fit for my personality. Their approach to decision making and meritocracy made me feel heard from day one. I am continuing my growth in corporate America and I am lucky to be a part of such a great company.
Company politics exist here, as they do at any company, and it takes a while to learn to navigate.
Advice to Management
Career pathing and career mobility are probably the highest risk to attrition that I see these days.
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Red Hat (Raleigh, NC (US)) in September 2011.
Had a 30-minute phone interview with the senior director then was invited to a panel interview. Red Hat selected 5 individuals who represented each of the core company values. I found after I was hired that if any one of them had given a strong thumbs down, it put tremendous pressure on the hiring manager if he/she wanted to override the decision. So yes, collaboration starts on the very first interaction with the company.
None. Offer was generous and accepted.
