Approves of CEO

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

Pros

Bent over backwards to accommodate my chosen lifestyle, my family, and my personal issues. This company is, so far, the best I've ever worked at in my 17 yr career as a System Administrator.

Cons

I had to come to San Antonio for training but honestly it's been pretty fun and so is probably not a con at all. They have told me that, as a remote worker, I will be limited in my upward career mobility but I have seen evidence within the organization to the contrary. Time will tell.

Advice to Management

Keep up the good work!

    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!
