I worked at Rackspace full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Passionate people who stick around for the long haul. Interesting work in the forefront of the Internet industry. Management with a long term plan, historically. Respected name recognition among industry peers.

Cons

San Antonio base is outside the mainstream population of Industry talent, customers and opportunities. Focus on leading Cloud industry dilutes traditional service-centric strength. Limited technological breadth and depth opportunities compared to competitors in other regions.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Return to service-centric focus, stop trying to compete against Amazon, Google on cutting edge technology and perfect service.

    Pros

    Rackspace has an amazing working environment! Everyone is encouraged to learn and grow professionally as well as empowered with the freedom to apply and cultivate your personal strengths.

    Cons

    As incintive to accept the position and move to San Antonio , I was promised a certian pay for the first three months to take the onboarding and training after which I would recieve a substantial increase. I took a 20k cut in annual pay to make the move. I have yet to recover the loss after 2 years and do not expect to see an increase for another two. Currently. Pay is ok but just barely competitive but the knowledge base and training opportunity is outstanding. This could be a great transition job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your people what they are worth and keep your promises.
