Best place I've ever worked

Linux Systems Engineer III (Current Employee)
Austin, TX

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

ProsGreat culture and people. Hiring is tough and culture fit is the first thing we assess with potential candidates. We use the latest technologies and you get to work on very interesting problems. A single person can have a great impact. Our customer-focused fanatical support isn't just something we say -- it's real.

The rack also has a very good life/work balance and is very family focused. Having to leave early to pick your kids up from school from time to time is no problem. As long as work gets done, that is!

ConsThe customer is king and sometimes we need to drop everything to help a customer out. The rapidly evolving cloud ecosystem means we sometimes need to quickly change course, which can be frustrating, but it's just a fact of life in the technology biz.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep it going the way it is. Keeping the culture of the company intact as we quickly grow can be tough, but so far it's working.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Fun company, growing and doing a lot of things right

Ruby Developer (Former Employee)
San Antonio, TX

I worked at Rackspace full-time


Pros: A real focus on taking care of employees. They work very hard to find the right fit for people, and aren't jerks about moving people… Cons: Lots of reorganization can become challenging to deal with. You never know quite where your desk is going to be… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
