Lots of learning opportunities, unstable environment
Anonymous (Current Employee) – Texas – December 10, 2016
Lots of learning opportunities on latest Cloud and virtualization technologies. Generous in-person training classes along with support for conference participation and professional development activities.
Management solicits feedback and takes action to address problems in management, infrastructure, and operations on regular basis. Overall, they provide employees with a lot of information about the business and strategy.
Company direction shifts often with major pivots about every six months. It's rare to see a project from beginning to final completion before the direction changes.
Good people to work with. In general, people try their best to help customers and solve problems.
Great learning opportunities available. Generally, Rackspace hires people that are interested, engaged, and helpful.
Extremely high turnover, employees burnout with constant change and lack of follow through on projects and initiatives, very top heavy management structure, entrenched Rackers sometimes not open to new approaches, power struggles at leadership level affect ability to collaborate across teams
