Great place to work

Systems Engineer II (Former Employee)
San Antonio, TX

I worked at Rackspace full-time for more than 5 years

ProsExcellent benefits (besides Health, dental, vision etc)... A "get the job done" attitude; family orientated. Instead of building a new campus, they bought a MALL... and it has a slide... Rackers focus on customers and don't really care about anything else. It's all about the customer.

ConsIt is ALL about the customer. Internal IT is a hated place to work. All of the other Rackers can do your job better. If you don't make $$$ for Rackspace, your views and opinions on cost cutting and efficiencies are ignored.

Advice to Senior ManagementThere is working FOR Rackspace, and then there is working AT Rackspace. There shouldn't be a difference.

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