Great culture and folks to work with but a little lower-end on average pay scales.

Pros

Fun people and a relaxed culture

Cons

Sometimes typical corporate decisions and the tendency to underpay for skilled people.

Advice to Management

Your people are your strongest resource, so treat them well enough to stay...you can't take culture to the grocery store and buy food with it.

    Pros

    Innovative, fun and great place to work. Smart co-workers and a leader in hot market. Strong values and culture that company strives hard to maintain.

    Cons

    Growing pains and my organization has been so focused on tactical work that it has lost sight of strategic work but that is looking to change.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of management and leadership that are not performing sooner rather than later.

    Pros

    Culture is number one. Rackspace selects people who are passionate and want to do good. Community involvement is plenty. Work life balance is very good. Learning opportunities are abundant and employees are encouraged to grow.

    Cons

    Cross-teams project to launch a certain release is often badly managed. No one understands the overall technical picture. No one was put responsible. Thus when there's an issue, it took a long time to finally identify the problem.

    Advice to Management

    Less re-active. Less churn to allow developers to be subject matter experts on something, before moving them around to other projects.
