    I have been working at Rackspace Technology full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great team! Solution Architecture leadership genuinely care about individuals and developing their careers and providing career development opportunities. Pay and benefits are good. Campus, canteen, parking and facilities are of a high standard, which more than makes up for the location. Free breakfast and ad-hoc free lunches. Racker culture!

    Cons

    Quality of leadership varies across the organisation. Some challenges with silos, but most Rackers genuinely want to help each other. No different in these respects to any large organisation.

    Advice to Management

    Accelerate product development to meet the continually changing needs of customers.
