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

    Pros

    You can't help but stay motivated and feel good when you hear the Senior Leadership Team speak, very focused, and very committed to the success of the company, the SLT keeps me going.
    Free soft-drinks, very casual atmosphere, great laid-back vibe to the company.

    Cons

    As someone else said, if you're not on great terms with your direct manager, you will never advance. . SLT is too far removed from the many issues with middle-management, and honestly probably unable to fix many of the problems at that level without causing more chaos. Pay is lower than average, core values are NOT exercised by some in middle-management.

    Advice to Management

    Develop better relationships with your middle-managers and you will see the holes, provide a way for employees to discuss issues at this level, offer direct communications as needed with employees when issues are not resolved with their managers.
