What employees say

Employees like

While working at Rackspace every employee treated you like family and was more than happy to assist you with anything. The training was amazing and super fun but also prepared you to be on your own as well. Due to it being a nontraditional office job it makes you not hate sitting all day, not to mention they are the occasional nerf gun wars.
It was my first real job that has definitely help me develop my career and other opportunities that are out there for my line of work
Rackspace really does offer a fun work place. My coworkers are brilliant and make coming to work every day exciting.
I've been given so many great opportunities because of my job including a generous discount on my car, on site cafeteria, amazing pay and a caring culture that gives me four weeks off a year plus as much overtime as I want.
This was a great company and will be again. Make sure you negotiate a good salary upon getting hired because raises are very few and far between. I haven't had a raise in over two years.

Employees don't like

The positions are over-represented in some departments, and underrepresented in other departments. I could easily get a higher title with more compensation at another company. In my particular team, we do not have the resources we need to develop our careers. I am not able to take on higher-level work, because there is no one to do the routine day-to-day tasks, which does not position me well for upward mobility.
The pay disparity for women. It is made taboo to talk about pay but the only benefit to this is for the company. We should be allowed to discuss pay and have our pay be equal to our colleagues who have the same experience and are ding the exact same jobs.
Middle management is stagnant, and their managers don't hold them accountable for the shortcomings of their department and actively look the other way when concerns are brought to their attention. Upper managers should be tasked with auditing their midd
Org restructure is a bit rough, pay isn’t industry standard for some roles, not good career path assistance or road map
Leadership asks for opinions but doesn’t act on it. They make decisions without consulting those affected and without understanding the impact on everyone. People come here to get started but leave to grow more

Suggestions for improvement

I would make sure there was pay equality. The policies are fine, but I would definitely add in more corporate style events and pay attention to the "worker bees" even when the company isnt depending on them to donate so they can win corporate cup.
Be more innovative. The company claims to be a leader in the industry but is focused on reselling other company's products - the opposite of innovation. Be more competitive with employee's pay, you get out what you put in to your talent pool and emplo
The company is currently undergoing changes in executive leadership and strategy under the influence of Apollo Global.
The only improvement I would make is the scheduling, have some part time workers so the full timers don’t always have to work weekend shifts. This would also make it easy to ask for pto
There has been too much focus lately on The Plan, and employees are losing steam. Morale is low.
