Cons

-so fast paced and tons of change that is exciting, but also exhausting -high expectations -internal communication, but mostly because so faced pace -mindshare (needs to spend more $ on marketing-not on quality of brand which is awesome, but more on awareness of brand)

Love that all the execs are on the floor, but they are not always around. Awesome when they are because the leaders fuel the environment. More vacation or sabatical program! :)

    Pros

    The culture at Rackspace is the absolute best, they really enjoy the sharing of ideas, they embody the work had - play hard philosophy and they work at amazing pace to care for their customers.

    Cons

    Leadership is immature, mainly at the med-level management level. Many of thses managers have moved into their first managment role and the expectations of the company are really great. Rackspace does not have a Management Training program and they really need one, They are constantly recognized as one of the best places to work, but they could mve up the ladder if the management training was in place.
