Pros

Excellent 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.

Cons

It 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 Management

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

    Pros

    Get to wear shorts at work. Rackspace seems to be doing well. Bonuses are good.

    Cons

    Unrealistic deadlines from clueless management. Unworthy promotions. Tired of seeing the same mistakes again and again. Haven't seen much improvement in four years.

    Advice to Management

    Promote the good people and fire the bad.
