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

Pros

Innovative, fun and great place to work. Smart co-workers and a leader in hot market. Strong values and culture that company strives hard to maintain.

Cons

Growing pains and my organization has been so focused on tactical work that it has lost sight of strategic work but that is looking to change.

Advice to Management

Get rid of management and leadership that are not performing sooner rather than later.

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

    Pros

    great co-workers, ability to learn across peer groups, access to technology, elements of a meritocracy, opportunity to build a career.

    Cons

    Work life balance can be a challenge - not nearly as bad as Amazon. Being a "hero" is encouraged, it is the norm. Immature products pushed to G&A (industry issue - not just Rackspace).

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your Rackers - they are the core differentiator. Keep your standards and expectations high, and reward excellence.


  2. "Overall a good place for mid-career and early-career learning"

    Take care when announcing decisions which could upset the company body. There have been occasions where negative announcements could have been presented better.
