Pros

Very challenging work, ability to work on many different technologies, and the people that you work with are extremely talented.

Cons

Some of the culture has left, the work / life balance can be difficult to attain consistently for some positions, and the pay tends to track below averages.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Better benefits, higher pay, and look toward additional satellite offices or remote work.

    I worked at Rackspace full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Tons of company spirit, in a good way. I say that as an introvert.

    Cons

    I'm not sure management ever figured out what to do about Cloud Envy. Openstack is nice but "OSS for spite" isn't a strategy. (Ask Sun.)

    Some of the architects are clowns who couldn't code their way out of a paper bag.

    Pros

    Great work environment, lots of creative people solving interesting problems.

    Cons

    Some jobs are better than others, entry level work can be tedious. If your willing to work hard and grow you can advance quickly into various roles from sysadmin to developers to management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus more on customer service and less on chasing the next big thing. Don't worry about growth, instead worry about making a great experience.
