Featured Review

Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

I have been working at Rackspace Technology full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Being such a large service provider, Rackspace enables engineers to specialise to the expert level of their job function. Often engineers have a higher level of expertise than the various vendor TACs..., who are rarely engaged. Additionally, the breadth of services Rackspace offers allows engineers opportunity to change technical tracks if they want. It's not uncommon to see engineers jumping from Windows support teams into AWS support teams - further developing their technical talent. Moving up, Rackspace understands that management isn't always the path people want to take. The Technical Career Track (TCT) programme exists to cater for this, by offering titles such as Principle & Distinguished Architect as well as Fellow. These roles recognise the individual as an expert in their field and ensure there is no limit to any technical roles within the company.

Cons

As the company is headquartered in the US and operates globally, sometimes meetings are scheduled after hours.

Former Employee - Sales Support

I worked at Softcat full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

There are a lot of perks with working at Softcat, even being in admin, such as admin day, 4pm beers, nights out and team lunches but a lot of it is aimed around drinking and a lot of the bigger... company incentives are aimed at sales or the more popular admin people.

Cons

After over 3 years of working in admin for Softcat I wasn’t awarded the end of year bonus when I left, even though I worked the full financial year and up to the last week of the first quarter of the... next financial year, which was unbelievably disappointing when there was no decent enough reason for this in my eyes. I took this up with the CEO of the company and was just told that I wouldn’t be rewarded this as they would then have to give it to every other admin person who had left since the end of financial year, not the most inspiring chat. This unfortunately left me with a bad impression after 3 years of working with Softcat and many happy, fun memories there. I believe admin, across all areas, should have a higher base salary as I was only rewarded a £1,000 base salary increase after 3 promotions within the company in the same department. If I was in sales and was promoted even once, I would imagine the base salary increase is much more than £1,000.

Advice to Management

Listen to your admin employees and increase their base salaries.
