I have been working at Rackspace

Pros

Lots of opportunity given high growth
Collaborative culture means you get a voice
Open book environment means lots of information shared

Cons

High growth means lots of org changes and shifts
High growth also means lots of urgent projects and not enough time for forward thinking efforts

Advice to ManagementAdvice

add process where you need it; don't add it where you don't - finding the right balance is key and hard.
