    Former Employee - Windows Systems Administrator II in San Antonio, TX

    I worked at Rackspace full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good friendly people overall. Eduacation chances were good, but have almost disappeared since the texas grant dreid up last year. Free Sodas. Team outings every six months, as long as your boss gets them set up in time, lol. If you enjoy being around a lot of people and can work with background noise then your good. Introverts should not apply.

    Cons

    they do not give COLA raises, you have to get a promotion in order to get a raise. To get a higher than satisfactory on a 6 month review you need to make a significant dollar add to the bottom line, this was said directly from management. Started seeing political fights happening inside departments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    keep the old cutlure alive, dont let it disappear. get the COLA raises going, lots of hard working people have left becuase of no raises in over 4 years of employment. First place i worked at that did not give me a raise in the first year.
