    I worked at Rackspace full-time

    Pros

    The culture is great. Friends and family is a real thing.

    Cons

    Too many senior leaders with no domain experience over what they are leading.

    Advice to Management

    Hire smart, hands-on leaders with killer resumes. Big companies aren't the key here. Look for talent from high-growth, innovative companies.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Rackspace (San Antonio, TX).

    Interview

    Very quick, I applied on Wednesday and I got a call from HR on Thursday. Behavioral interview was insightful and laid back. After the initial screening, I was invited to interview on campus. I was welcomed by some of the team members and was walked up to the interview room. Two sets of interviews, a 1x1 with the manager and a panel interview with the analysts. Very behavior-oriented. Difficult, but worth it.
