I have been working at Rackspace full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Rackspace is a wonderful company to work for, and the benefits are great. I enjoy having an on-site gym and a plethora of food vendors to choose from on food truck days. I've heard the benefits aren't quite as nice in Austin, but it's still an awesome place to work! I love having a coffee shop and creative design team behind the San Antonio office.

Cons

I've heard the Austin office doesn't get quite the same amount of benefits as the San Antonio office which is a downside for people who work out of that office. The salary ranges are fairly massive, and it can be difficult to move around within that range. It seems increases in pay while keeping the same position can be hard to come by.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hold true to the core value of transparency as it seems it is sometimes avoided.

    Current Employee - Linux Systems Administrator II in San Antonio, TX

    I have been working at Rackspace full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Bent over backwards to accommodate my chosen lifestyle, my family, and my personal issues. This company is, so far, the best I've ever worked at in my 17 yr career as a System Administrator.

    Cons

    I had to come to San Antonio for training but honestly it's been pretty fun and so is probably not a con at all. They have told me that, as a remote worker, I will be limited in my upward career mobility but I have seen evidence within the organization to the contrary. Time will tell.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work!
