Great culture and a number of world class developers, designers, managers, and teams there that really pushed me professionally and who were truly a joy to work with. Depending on your team, Rackspace has a great remote-friendly culture as well. They have done a good job of recruiting talent and have nationally competitive benefits/pay.
Depending on the organization within the company, women developers have few (or sometimes no) peers. Career paths are pretty rigidly defined, and if you don't fit easily into a certain box and happen to belong to a marginalized group, chances are that opportunities won't be created for you the way they are for your peers. When management expected me to take on management duties without a raise or title in an environment that was rife with political battles, I decided I'd do better to grow my career elsewhere.
Advice to Management
Help teams move in a common direction. Too often I worked on teams who, though not in overt or direct competition with each other, were working on projects with competing objectives. Duplicate work, lack of shared strategy and vision, and squabbling among middle management contributed to a lot of pain and frustration for talented team members when I was there.
I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Rackspace (San Antonio, TX) in April 2017.
Submitted my resume online, got a call from a recruiter that lasted about 15 minutes. Next was an email asking me to do a hireu video interview .. awkward and I thought I had bombed at that point. Next a week or so later got an email saying the team would like to interview me. Did a panel (3) interview over the phone and two days later a call to say they'd like to offer me the position.
