    I worked at Rackspace full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Fantastic benefits, which the HR team do a great job with. From personal health (gym, sports days etc.) to general fun, they do a good job of creating a nice buzz.

    - Generally, the culture is good. Increasingly, there seemed to be less focus on hiring the "right" characters and personalities for the company, but for most of my tenure I was surrounded by good people.

    - Flexible time-off and working from home policies.

    Cons

    - Compensation was really poor, and well below industry averages in some cases. Moving up pay grades was always made into a logistical difficulty (changing job titles, teams etc.).

    - Some of the managers are not equipped to be people managers, relying on leaders within the teams to do most of the hands-on managerial work.

    - Senior leadership approach the business in a very reactive manner, causing the business focus to shift every 6 months after things go wrong. There is no committed direction and it seems they're winging it.

    - No opportunities for progression. Having left since, I have realised how I've probably stunted my own growth by not doing so sooner.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    In several years of employment, I was one of many examples of people not once offered to interview for a more prominent position, in spite of performance and clear suitability. In my example, this was despite top-of-class performance reviews, and taking the role of "temporary" manager whenever the managerial team were away, or staff felt they couldn't rely on them.
