    Ich habe weniger als ein Jahr bei Rackspace gearbeitet - Vollzeit

    Pros

    International eine großartige Kultur. Ihr geplantes Lösungsportfolio trifft genau den Kern der Zeit. Großes Potential wenn es richtig angegangen wird.

    Kontras

    Leider bleibt - wie so oft - die globale Kultur lokal auf der Strecke. Hier liegt die Schuld eindeutig beim Management. Fehlentscheidungen, mangelnde Kommunikation und stellenweise einfach die falschen Leute an wichtigen Positionen.

    Rat an das Management

    Ich glaube es ist Zeit für einen dritten Neuanfang.

    Pros

    Rackspace is super chill about queerness. A lot of people have anxiety about how they will fit in with their coworkers. They may have a very real fear that they could be openly discriminated against for their sexual orientation or gender identity, since queer people are vulnerable in that way in Virginia. Not only are sexual orientation and gender identity specifically included as protected characteristics in the employee handbook, but also I have never detected even a hint of prejudice from my coworkers on the topic. It really sucks that something so foundational is remarkable, but for a queer person considering Rackspace in Blacksburg, it's important for you to know that you'll be safe here. The work/life balance is very healthy to the extent that I can take vacation time on a whim, with morning-of notice being fine. This also makes self care easier, because if I can easy take a day just because I want to, it removes the need to justify if I feel unwell enough to need rest. we also get tons of vacation time. I've been with the company long enough that I get the maximum amount: 35 days paid time off plus the 6 or so set holidays. The work itself is engaging. We're giving a lot of autonomy for creative problem solving. The office is responsible for a wide range of technology as well, so if you find that you are unsatisfied with one thing, you could try out another. The best part about working for Rackspace is absolutely the people. Everyone is friendly, taking a genuine interest in your well-being. It may be some of the flavor of Blacksburg as well, but it's a core part of Rackspace culture.

    While the Blacksburg office is super neat, Rackspace corporate can work against us sometimes. The Blacksburg office isn't part of Rackspace's core business, so we get forgotten at times. Though in cases of increasing corporate wankery, being forgotten is sometimes a blessing. Rackspace has a history of falling behind and catching up on salary. We've gone though a multi-year belt-tightening since we went private. Hopefully that abates soon, but we'll see. I still make more money than I need for the area, but I also know that I'm not maximizing my income by staying with the company. Similarly, career advancement is not reliable. In the past, it seemed like the number one factor for getting a promotion is to have a manager who fights for it the hardest, regardless of merit. In recent years there really just hasn't been the budget. People have even been leaving for other places and the positions haven't been allowed to be back-filled. Although if you're reading this considering a job opening, perhaps that trend is over.

    This section is kind of funny for me, because I get that for most companies this would be a place to actually give advice, but in the Blacksburg office, we're so integrated that management already knows everything that could be an improvement. It's just that the corporation above us doesn't allow for some of the things that are most inhibiting us at the moment.

    Pros

    Super flexible scheduling. Loads of time off. Managers that care. Snacks and drinks provided daily.

    Kontras

    Raises haven't been great the last few years. Benefits aren't competitive. However, I think these things will get better in time.

    Rat an das Management

    Better 401K and HSA contributions.
