Pros

Great benefits and a SLT group that cares about the culture. Benefits are close to those that you'd expect in silicon valley but right here in San Antonio. Great opportunity for growth and a chance to be a part of great IT.

Cons

It's a smaller company that's getting big fast. There are some growth pains but they are being fixed.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep on doing what you're doing!

    Pros

    Fun place to work, great team outings, occasional Nerf War, free sodas.

    Cons

    Starting to become more corporate. There's a push to get some of the culture back. HR is not very helpful or flexible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure people get the training they need. Make sure they are in the right job for their skills.

    I worked at Rackspace full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    I worked at Rackspace for almost 2 years. When I was hired, the company culture was fantastic. But over the time I was employed, they stepped away from the great culture and became more corporate and uninviting. If you're high tech, it's a great company on the cutting edge but if you think you won't work hard and have to follow pretty strict rules, look elsewhere.

    Cons

    Management at the local DC level is difficult to deal with. The customer isn't always kept in the loop about what is happening with their servers during a maintenance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More transparency needed for your customers. If a mistake is made, fix it, and train staff better to avoid situations that could cause downtime or data loss.
