Featured Review

Current Employee - Solutions Architect

I have been working at Rackspace full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Great team! Solution Architecture leadership genuinely care about individuals and developing their careers and providing career development opportunities. Pay and benefits are good. Campus, canteen,... parking and facilities are of a high standard, which more than makes up for the location. Free breakfast and ad-hoc free lunches. Racker culture!

Cons

Quality of leadership varies across the organisation. Some challenges with silos, but most Rackers genuinely want to help each other. No different in these respects to any large organisation.

Advice to Management

Accelerate product development to meet the continually changing needs of customers.

I have been working at SolarWinds

Pros

SolarWinds has a huge customer base-great opportunity to learn and build relationships in the industry. Performance is rewarded. The culture is what you make it - if you stick around positive people... and be a positive influence on others around you, it’s a really fulfilling place to work.

Cons

Fast-paced environment can be a struggle for some. Frequent changes - if you aren’t adaptable, it might not be for you.

Advice to Management

Continue to focus on building relationships and being a long term partner, not just a software vendor.
