Overworked but learnt alot!

DC Ops Tech (Former Employee)
Slough, Berkshire, South East England, England

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

Pros-Good Training
-Good place to start
-Rapid growth
-Lots of room for progression as a Tech
-Secure job, no redundancies

Cons-Management dont listen to line-workers
-Constantly coerced into overtime due to company growing fast and difficulty hiring.
-Slightly lower salary than competitors.
-Bad shift rotas
-Sales oversell solutions, way more than customers need, they are too incentivised by commision

Advice to Senior Management-Pay your employees more to reduce churn
-Less middle management
-Dont overwork employees with overtime

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