Pros

Rackers have autonomy over their work and there is ample room for career progression. It's great to work with so many smart, engaged people. It makes being at work fun :).

Cons

Fast growth creates all kinds of challenges. Not all bad, but it can be frustrating, depending on the person. Change is a constant at Rackspace. Changing teams, projects, seating etc. If you're not flexible and adaptable, you'll be frustrated.

Advice to Management

With so much growth and change, communication is always a challenge. Finding the right medium and frequency to ensure everyone has the same information has to remain a priority.

    Pros

    Exposure to a multitude of unique problems and situations. You will have to wade through an obscene amount of email tickets, but you will have those gems that stick out. You have opportunities to get industry certifications (RHCE, CMDBA, MSCE, CCNA, etc.) that will help you down the road.

    Cons

    I feel the culture diminished significantly when the company went public, though some irresponsible employees helped. If you're not working days, your workload will be significantly higher, despite the cited breakdown of servers per employee.

    Pros

    Good money. Decent benefits. Great resume builder. Industry leader. Well known name. Brilliant executive leadership. Culture still remains within few segments.

    Cons

    Management is far below industry standard. People have not earned spots such as VP titles. Very little pride on the sales side of the business.

    Advice to Management

    Take more time to focus on all segments of the business. An organization boasting of their culture should have this vision throughout.
