I have been working at Rackspace full-time (More than 8 years)RecommendsNeutral OutlookApproves of CEORecommendsNeutral OutlookApproves of CEO
Rackspace has been a great company to work for in the last 8 years and counting. It has been an amazing learning experience for me and I appreciate all the tools I have added to my toolkit during the years. I really like the work/life balance that the company provides- and also the many perks such as paid time off, 401K and benefits.
My concerns are around strategy and accountability- I need to know what my goals are and sometimes these change quite often based on thin air.
Sales quotas are set on a monthly basis so it is difficult to be strategic at times because you go from month to month and never have the chance to take vacation time unless you hit your quotas early enough during the month--or you can, but you're not going to be @ goal if you are not on the floor selling day after day. Processes and tools are lacking in some fronts causing effectiveness to suffer.
Advice to Management
I know your jobs are tough, my uttermost respect to you but we need direction... and good leaders that are accountable and follow through.
