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

Pros

Fun people, fun concept, fun vision, great sense of teams at almost every turn

Cons

Smoke and mirrors, poorly trained/experienced leadership, low priority placed on employee training/development compared to "big boy" companies. Lots of talk about culture from talking heads. It gets real after about 90 days and most people realize the joke is on them.

Advice to Management

Sell this thing to someone who can handle it. Hint: It's not Taylor Rhodes and Graham Weston.

    Pros

    You can re-create yourself here. The opportunities to move forward with your career in really in your own hands.

    Cons

    We are (in some areas) slowly becoming that big company. Not all change is good.

    Advice to Management

    Remember pre 8-8-8!!!
