Does Red Hat pay for a gym membership?

Pros

Been here for coming up on a year. First six months I thought it was too good to be true. I have excellent management, my team is very competent, work-life balance is taken seriously, remote work is obviously a huge plus. Bonus program is great, benefits are great. The company actually seems to care about associates. I haven't been at a place that felt like this in a long time.

Cons

Internal drama on some mailing lists is sometimes a bit silly. Not really a con, just unsub if it bothers you. Remote work benefits could be slightly better -- no gym or office supplies allowance, etc. The Red Hat offices are awesome, so going remote means you miss out on some cool stuff every now and then, especially t-shirts. Salary is very good, but obviously not competitive with FANG stock grants. No stock options as far as I'm aware. I've heard you don't get yearly raises.

Advice to Management

Keep doing exactly what you're doing. Please.

What is the retirement plan like at Red Hat?

Pros

Great culture. Highly intelligent people across all roles. People help each other out. Very nice overall compensation package (Decent medical insurance options, HSA seeding, 401k matching, ample PTO and holidays, annual company-wide holiday shutdown, bonus plans, stock grants to reward performance, WFH was common even before COVID, etc). Lots of learning and development opportunities. Engaged upper management team. Employees are treated like real people, every time. Strong advocate of open source software.

Cons

As with probably any company that attracts highly skilled and motivated people, there is always a lot happening. That makes it difficult for those (like me) who try to keep ahead of everything. People tend to work much beyond what is required.
