Pros

Rackers have autonomy around how they approach their work. There is very little limiting structure/process in most areas. Rackspace is a meritocracy. Smart, hard working people can do whatever they want.

Cons

Autonomy can lead to inconsistent execution. It also takes new hires a bit longer to learn how to do things the Rackspace way. Fast growth results in frequent changes, which can be frustrating to some.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Develop technical leaders. There are lots of great business leaders who don't understand the technology. This can lead to slow or incorrect decisions.

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

    Pros

    Substance over flash goes far.

    Cons

    Managers and jr. Leaders need further development to actually lead.

    A casual environment is not always appropriate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Imperative to understand difference between managing a business and leading people.
