I have been working at Rackspace full-time

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 Management

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

    I have been working at Rackspace full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The culture is by far the best part of Rackspace. There are a ton of opportunities for personal and professional development and training. Everyone has a wonderful attitude and enjoys coming to work. The pay is great and the benefits are unbeatable.

    Cons

    Pay can be higher elsewhere, but the benefits and environment make up for it. Sometimes getting into training classes can be difficult due to the popularity of a particular class, but they are always adding more slots.

    Advice to Management

    Some of the upper management seems a bit disconnected from the general population, but I suppose in a company of 4000+ it's inevitable.

    Pros

    Rackspace likes to maintain it's startup-like culture. Casual dress, free food everywhere, free sodas, fun team outings, etc. But most of all, I would have to say the best part of this company is the caliber of employees they hire. This includes not only their skills but also their personality. You can be a very high level expert in a field but they won't hire you if you have the social skills of a brick. Real-work skills and experience are important that are relevant to your position.

    Cons

    Don't expect to start out with a high salary here. You will have to earn your place at the company for the first couple of years, but after that you'll be rewarded handsomely. The one best mitigator is the large amount of vacation. We get 20 core vacation days on top of every single Federal holiday.
