Featured Review

Current Employee - Program Manager

I have been working at USAA full-time for less than a year

Pros

Leaders are generally carefully selected and very well trained. Work- life balance is a reality here. There is always opportunity for growth. Pay is competitive within the industry. Benefits are... the best in the industry.

Cons

Work can be unpredictable because of fast moving targets or shifting priorities. Bonuses are not the best in the industry because of recent cost reduction efforts necessary as the company looks for... efficiency.

Advice to Management

While reorganization might be required to keep up with upcoming challenges, constantly breaking up teams reduces their effectiveness. Try hard to reorganize ABOVE the tactical level.

Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

I have been working at Rackspace full-time for less than a year

Pros

Big company with lots of amazing people, small perks, decent on-boarding process, and opportunity to move around between groups. Each group tends to have a slightly different culture. Mine is... phenomenal, and I feel like I'm surrounded by a bunch of close friends. We're able to agree and disagree openly, which is fantastic for engineering staff that sometimes needs to make difficult decisions quickly. The CEO is a call-it-like-I-see-it kind of guy. While this might be harsh or a shock for some people, I would always rather have an honest a difficult conversation than be left in the dark or not given details I need to make decisions. The company's core values, as lame as that might sound, are solid. It's not uncommon for a company to choose buzzwords as their values, but what's rare is to see a company that actually takes the time to define what each core value means to the organization and how employees are expected to uphold them at all times.

Cons

Tasks and team objectives can move quickly, and some people just can't handle the context switch. This isn't a "con" for everyone, but if you want to work in a static environment from 9am to 5pm, you... probably won't enjoy Rackspace. Also, if you're a minimum effort kind of person, you'll probably feel very out of place in the company. Everyone I've met works as thought they ran the company, and they take pride in giving Rackspace a good name. If you're not looking to do the same, you'll feel very left out.

Advice to Management

Encourage teams to find a culture and character of their own, but push them to demonstrate the core values.
