    I have been working at Rackspace full-time

    Pros

    Excellent Job Benefits and Pay For Individual Contributors, if you negotiate well going in
    You have the opportunity to make a difference day one.

    Cons

    If you are not in the core functions (Sales, Support, Dev), little or no career progression.
    No career planning or structure
    constant org changes, poor change management
    Corporate ADD

    Advice to Management

    You need to fully bake your initiatives before you start them, so when we have an annual kick-off we are still tracking those targets by Q2 and haven't moved on to the next shiny object, and stop being distracted by the stock price.

    I have been working at Rackspace full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Rackspace is a great company. Lots of opportunities for those who want to make their own way. You can be an entrepreneur with the company.

    Cons

    Rackspace is a great company, but it is growing quickly into a big company. That can be a good thing- less rapid change, more formal programs- but it can also be a bad thing if you want more of a startup culture.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure to keep a place for innovators as you grow. I've seen some of the companies best entrepreneurial minds leave recently. This can hurt in the long run.
