Pros

Working here is like working with a big extended family. Everyone treats you with respect and concern. If you need any help or advice, your teammates are always there for you.

Cons

The pay could always be higher. Everyone thinks that wherever they work. I do feel that Rackspace is a little below the average though.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Yes, your Rackers are the source of your Fanatical Support. We are the secret sauce! The salary pool could use a pretty hefty increase. Not only to hire more people, but to allow for promotions and pay increases for your seasoned Rackers!

    Pros

    The company is amazing in how they promote rackers. Good sense of community

    Cons

    One can never implement any processes. Everything has to be based on Racker culture. No way you can introduce changes. Anyone can talk to anyone and there is no protection for new comers. No time is given for adjustments

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please allow two sides of the equation to work. If you just support old time rackers and make the new comers feel miserable, it really hurts.

    Pros

    Work is steady. Growing company. Good culture

    Cons

    middle management is weak and needs more experience

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There are too many people are in positions of management that are there because they have seniority and not because they are good managers. Management training is a definite need.
