Got too big. Top heavy.

Sales (Former Employee)
San Antonio, TX (US)

I worked at Rackspace full-time for more than 3 years

ProsLoved my co-workers. Liked the old culture better.

ConsHated the politics and good ol boys club. Buddies got promoted based on being buddies not by their abilities or competence. Never ending restructuring of the sales org, increasing quotas, less leads, fewer accounts Sales leadership incompetence.

Advice to Senior ManagementTo the C levels: Take a close look at your VP and Mid Level management staff and ask yourself are they the right players and how did they get into those positions? Are they bringing game changing leadership and ideas or merely going through the motions. Scrutinize the Q12 management surveys.
Do not accept mediocrity.

VP's and Mid Level managers: Pay attention to your MVP's. Respond to your Q12's with positive change. Cultivate the best from your teams.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

At first… Cons: While it might be harder to get into Rackspace than Harvard, its a safe bet that the average time spent on campus pursuing an undergraduate… Advice to Senior Management: To the Senior Leadership Team (SLT) - Pay more attention to the mid-level leadership. The title of Vice President is significant and shouldn't be… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More

One Fanatical Place to Work!

Senior Manager (Current Employee)

I have been working at Rackspace full-time for more than 5 years


Pros: Excellent values, a great culture, and an awesome leadership team all demonstrate that Rackspace cares about its employees and its customers. The company promotes ownership… Cons: Sometimes our senior leadership sends conflicting priorities based on their own incentives, due mostly to a lack of coordination between them. Our "time off" policy… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
