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

Pros

great co-workers, ability to learn across peer groups, access to technology, elements of a meritocracy, opportunity to build a career.

Cons

Work life balance can be a challenge - not nearly as bad as Amazon. Being a "hero" is encouraged, it is the norm. Immature products pushed to G&A (industry issue - not just Rackspace).

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take care of your Rackers - they are the core differentiator. Keep your standards and expectations high, and reward excellence.

    I have been working at Rackspace full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The company doesn't feel like company, it's like home with our family in there, we are all there to help and be helped. The orientation is just awesome! I loved the company before I was hired and it grows every single day I am there.

    Cons

    It could pay more compared to other IT companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better pay.
