Technical Account Manager
Being a woman in tech, I only recently started advocating for myself at work about advancement opportunities. Because of this I wanted to ask this question to my male counterparts. When you have 1:1's with your direct reports and talk about career growth / aspirations what is your managers’ response typically? I’d like to gauge how my experience (negative) differs from others. For instance are you met with blockades, enthusiasm, dread, etc?

Complete Dumpster FireMay 23, 2023 - Senior Software Engineer in San Antonio, TXRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Four weeks of PTO was nice.
I don't even think I can really explain how inept the executive leadership is. Direction and planning from the top felt like watching a fish that had been thrown out on the asphalt on a hot summer day, flipping and flopping in madness from one place to the other, hoping in vain to find water. Their failed plans and leadership always results in "difficult choices" (layoffs and or outsourcing) for the rest of us, while they suck their millions out of the company.Continue reading

Used to be great place to start a career - not so much anymoreMay 31, 2023 - Senior Software Developer in Blacksburg, VARecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Good remote work policies, good PTO
Company has been gutted by the demands of Private equity rollovers and public markets up to a point where the leadership is killing really profitable businesses

Good Company to work forMar 18, 2023 - AWS Developer in Austin, TXRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
If you want remote this is a good company to work for. The Pay is good and the people are great too.
If you don't like this to change this is not the job for you, you usually are on a project for 6 months and then put on a different one for a different client.

Where good companies are bought up for their talent and forced to wither away.Aug 10, 2022 - Cloud Software Engineer in Houston, TXRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Their initial salaries for cloud engineers might be alright. Their culture isn't the absolute worst.
My company (Onica) was bought by Rackspace, and the great treatment we god from Onica immediately vanished. Our yearly performance bonuses shrank, our yearly raise dropped to less than 2%. My friendly managers tried getting us new titles for the pay raises associated with them at least, and that was denied by Rackspace's management too. All of the talent from Onica's acquisition left Rackspace for a reason. Rackspace killed the positive culture Onica had. Rackspace's culture isn't the absolute worst in the industry, but it's absolutely nothing special, and they still don't care about you.Continue reading

Ruined by acquisitionAug 12, 2022 - Cloud Software EngineerRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Interesting projects, opportunities to learn new technologies and work with different kinds of clients
Onica was a great company to work for until it was acquired by Rackspace. Rackspace only cares about the bottom line and will be happy to offshore your job to save a penny. They had the audacity to give most engineers at Onica a 0 percent raise despite being their best earning BU. After everyone started leaving they tried to backpedal and give some people raises but it was too little too late. They charge clients a large multiple of what they pay us and are making a huge margin off of our hard work and yet still give raises below the rate of inflation.Continue reading

Good company, hard transitionAug 3, 2022 - Software Developer IIIRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Company culture cares about doing good Some of the best people you'll ever work with
There have been a lot of layoffs as roles are outsourced to India. The culture that was built on being friends and family has really shifted to a more corporate atmosphereContinue reading

Rackspace acquired the company I worked and killed everything great about itFeb 10, 2022 - Software Engineer IV in Irvine, CARecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
- adequate time off although significantly less than they acquired - they offer stock options - work from home
- pay is well below competitive rates - insurance is expensive and it's not great - equipment has to be at least 5 years old to be replaced (even computers) - the senior talent that made the company I worked for great are all actively looking to leave for something better or have already left - there is no initiative to try to retain talent - changes made by Rackspace have actively killed communication and collaboration across the company - lack of quality documentation. when looking for information for internal process or to support customers the documentation is almost always outdated and no longer relevant. - onboarding is a nightmare, something is always missed - the entire company is sprawled across multiple instances of tools with minimal consistency - we are understaffed and drowning yet they laid-off a large chunk of employees. despite having over 1,000 open positions (and for some reason sounds proud about that) there have been very few new hires (next to no quality new hires) because compensation is not competitive

Fun place to workJul 7, 2022 - Salesforce Developer in Chicago, ILRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
This was a few years back during the RelationEdge merger, but company events were really fun. Managers spent a great deal making sure employees weren’t overstaffed on projects
I had experience in other areas, but given the developer role was only staffed to do those specific tasks and didn’t have opportunities to branch outContinue reading
