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

Pros

Fun people, fun concept, fun vision, great sense of teams at almost every turn

Cons

Smoke and mirrors, poorly trained/experienced leadership, low priority placed on employee training/development compared to "big boy" companies. Lots of talk about culture from talking heads. It gets real after about 90 days and most people realize the joke is on them.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Sell this thing to someone who can handle it. Hint: It's not Taylor Rhodes and Graham Weston.

    If you don't like to randomly get hit with nerf darts at any given point in the day, then you probably shouldn't work here...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think senior management as done a great job making each Racker feel important and part of the Rackspace family. My only advice is to keep on keep'n on!

    Was great. Losing it's values and respect for culture.

    Stop focusing on yourselves and spend some time with those that "got you there".
