Overall a good place for mid-career and early-career learning

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Rackspace full-time for more than 3 years

ProsSignificant availability of internal training, classes and training compensation for outside training.
Good balance of work vs life.

ConsInconsistent process and goals.
Poor retention of mid-late career employees.
Occasionally management makes decisions which come across as deceptive.

Advice to Senior ManagementTake care when announcing decisions which could upset the company body. There have been occasions where negative announcements could have been presented better.

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