Pros

Outstanding training and advancement opportunities, great culture and working environment, emphasis on personal fulfillment and job satisfaction, flexible schedules and good benefits.

Cons

Culture can be a bit overwhelming at times, impossible to diet while working here as there's ALWAYS food laying around!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Great work with the Castle and ongoing projects. Still need more Rackers as workloads are high and service is suffering.

    I have been working at Rackspace

    Pros

    There is an unlimited amount of opportunity and earning potential if your mind is in the right place. Being a part of a company that really gets how to treat their employees helps to push you to want to do more. I love this place!

    - awesome work environment
    - great people here - truly Rackers being Rackers
    - Lanham really leads by example - great guy!

    Cons

    Middle management sometimes doesn't "get it" when it comes to culture and helping keep Rackspace great. Hiring tends to come from the outside for management when it really should come from internal Rackers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure that managers being hired are the right kind of people first. The rest can be taught.
