I have been working at Rackspace full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Love the Rackers. They're passionate, smart and fun!
The opportunities for Rackspace as a company are huge - market is open and abundant.
Career advancement to a leadership role is a political game as with most companies.
Technical career advancement at Rackspace is limited only by your own ability to learn!

Cons

Execution issues on strategy create the biggest obstacles to success.
New incoming leaders/VPs fail to inspire their teams and lack the passion for the customer.
Not many women or diversity in leadership roles. No women or diversity in the executive leadership or on the board. Come on guys - don't be afraid of having diversity in your discussions.

Advice to Management

Stay true to the vision of being the world's greatest service company. Technology + Fanatical Support for the win!

    I worked at Rackspace full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Excellent benefits (besides Health, dental, vision etc)... A "get the job done" attitude; family orientated. Instead of building a new campus, they bought a MALL... and it has a slide... Rackers focus on customers and don't really care about anything else. It's all about the customer.

    Cons

    It is ALL about the customer. Internal IT is a hated place to work. All of the other Rackers can do your job better. If you don't make $$$ for Rackspace, your views and opinions on cost cutting and efficiencies are ignored.

    Advice to Management

    There is working FOR Rackspace, and then there is working AT Rackspace. There shouldn't be a difference.
