    The best part is that Rackspace covers the cost of most benefits. This changed a bit through the years but it was always very affordable for employees. Benefits is one thing this company has done very well.

    Current Design Research Specialist II in Austin, Texas

    Decent health care benefits but the 401k matching is awful--maximum of $2000, which amounts to less than 2% for my pay grade. Days off are also good, including volunteer hours. Overall good, but the matching is really disappointing.

    Medical benefits package offers several options with employer contribution plans; 401k match opportunities; enhanced mat/pat leave opportunities

    Current Senior Solutions Engineer in San Antonio, Texas

    Best: High Deductible health plans are very reasonable, flexible time off, very large amount of PTO (at three year tenure you get five and a half weeks off annually).
    Worst: Dental benefits have a $1500 max annual coverage

    It depends in large part on your manager at RAX, but work/life balance is part of the culture. Time off tends to be very generous.

    This company offers competitive benefits

    Rackspace offers medical, dental and vision insurance, a fantastic 401k, and even a wide array of training available in house. Also, many San Antonio area businesses offer discounts for Rackers!

    OK package. 401k is standard, along with health insurance. Every year the premiums went up, so factor that in

    Best: Time Off

    Worst: 401K wasnt great

    Benefits are not family friendly.
