Current Employee - Senior Software Developer in Blacksburg, VA

I have been working at Rackspace full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Great work life balance and good company culture. Great working environment as co-workers are treated as family and friends.

Cons

Lots of B or C-players in the company. Lack of career growth opportunity if you are not managers. Most managers are very young (less than 30 years old) and all are only good at talking and meeting; not managing.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Better career path for software developers. Better pick A-players to the company. Start innovate and stop play catch-up with competitors.

    I have been working at Rackspace full-time (more than 3 years)

    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!

    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 ManagementAdvice

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