"Overall company policies and benefits are great but there is some team by team variation in flexibility and pay. "

"There are no tangible, concrete efforts to improve diversity. The employee resource group will have outings or a coat drive."

"Very flexible for both genders to have lives outside of work. Both male and female bosses are transparent and clear about things like having to leave early to pick kids up from childcare, taking time off over their kids vacations, etc etc. Can work for a few weeks from different countries, as long as I have an internet connection, which is a real perk. Women are respected and expected to voice their opinions. There is a lot of honest conversation around gender issues, as there are about everything else at an open-source company. You are expected and welcomed as your whole self at work. Very refreshing."

"Carefully consider whether you are planning to have children. There are SO many companies in the area that offer SIGNIFICANTLY MORE MATERNITY THAN RED HAT."
"Red Hat is full of smart and talented people, but to get noticed you have to be willing to speak up. "
"In my experience, it is a great place to work. One of the best."

"Look for alternative forms of employment. Many ideas expressed as strategic objectives (i.e. improving the culture, promoting & listening to women, etc) are simply corporate hypocrisy and politicking at its best. "

"You must be able to influence and advocate for yourself. Understanding how to do that (likely differently than what you’re used to) is key."

"Great company to work for, great benefits, great culture. The problem is career advancement though. Many become stuck in the same role for years."

"Everything is dependent on your manager at Red Hat. Great manager can protect your work/life balance and support your family goals. It is definitely a tech company and can be weighted toward men, particularly in sales and engineering. Be sure to talk to as many people as possible about the specific team you are looking at. Infertility benefits are strange, covering medications but only if they are used for treating other medical issues. Vacation and sick days are all rolled into one and there's a mandatory week off in December (for NA) and you must take PTO. The women's leadership group has a great mailing list but events are few and far between. There is no official mentoring program but there are some fantastic women who are willing to reach across departments and roles to help. "
