I have been working at Rackspace full-time for more than a year

Pros

It's a great company and is positioned well in the market. It has a great culture and we seem to have fun at what we are doing.

Cons

The company has grown so fast that management really struggles, they don't have training for manager and this leaves a huge gap in the employee life cycle. Manger don't know they need to help you or develop you. You have to learn by yourself the odd's are your manager will not know how to help you.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get training, help your DR's develop and find out their career paths.

    I have been working at Rackspace full-time for 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.
