    I have been working at Rackspace full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Smart, fun, kind, energetic and eager-to-excel Rackers; Great life-work balance; Terrific environment; Three top execs seem terrific. Apollo actually adds tremendous value and guidance.

    Cons

    No salary raises AT ALL- not even to cover increases in insurance payments- even when you majorly move the needle! Very discouraging especially when many Rackers are Slackers... especially "Managers".

    Advice to Management

    Cut the goof-off dead weight! Reward the best workers so they will keep up their good work and STAY! Clearer vision. Get the changes over with and then heads down!

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Rackspace.

    Interview

    Applied on Rackspace website, received email to set up interview. First one was cancelled 3 minutes before the time and rescheduled. Interviewer contacted me again and was rude. They would ask me questions then cut me off mid-sentence except at one point when I thought I lost the call and said, "Hello? Hello, are you still there?" to which I received the response, "Sorry, I was eating." Very unprofessional. The interview with the dept. head went slightly better, but ended with a, "We''ll call you." They never called. I would not want to do it again. Everyting I have (thus far) heard, read or experienced about Rackspace has lead me to the conclusion that I would NOT want to work there.
