I worked at Red Hat as an intern for more than a yearPros
Red Hat provides its employees with a great working environment. In general, the people are very friendly and there is a strong sense of community within the company. The compensation and benefits are competitive. They are very flexible and are supportive in helping you balance your home and work life. I was pleasantly surprised by how interns are treated as regular employees.Cons
A lot of the products that are developed do not directly bring profit to the company.RecommendsNeutral OutlookApproves of CEO

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 months - interviewed at Red Hat in June 2014.Interview Details
The interview process involved a recruiter phone screening, number of behavioral interviews over the phone with team members, followed by a phone interview with the hiring manager (iirc). I was told they'd get back to me by a certain date. Then they asked for a two-week extension when they date came. Then they never got back to me. They left me hanging, not knowing how to conduct the rest of my job search. They never even had the decency to let me know I was no longer being considered, despite promising to call me back.
Also, the job was advertised as allowing remote work from anywhere in the U.S., but they declined to advertise that there are 7 states from which they won't normally hire people. So it was irritating to invest the effort into getting an interview without knowing that likely roadblock awaited.
Overall I'm deeply disappointed with Red Hat. They showed a systemic lack of character.Interview Questions
