    I have been working at Rapid7 full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Rewarding work in a high demand field, lots of room and encouragement for professional growth, startup style perks that the company hasn't outgrown yet.

    Cons

    Work/life balance isn't a concern here. They'd rather issue awards for people who work 6-6 than make sure their employees are well-rounded human beings with lives outside their jobs. I work hard, do my job well, and get my work done during business hours, but feel cultural pressure to hang around and just be present for the sake of appearances.

    The company is centered around sales culture, which is centered around young people with type A personalities. Emails go around periodically reminding employees that it is, in fact, a place of business, and not their personal playhouse. Behavior in the bullpen can be appalling.

    Whether this last remark is a con is subjective, but here's my take: most people seem to have been with the company less than 2 years. They come in, learn new skills, build their careers, and move out. The willingness of Rapid7 to develop and invest in people they know probably won't stay is a definite pro, but the environment of constant churning is a con in my book. For most people, Rapid7 will be a stepping stone rather than a lengthy career.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1) Stop the regular meetings at 8am, 12pm, and 5pm. As an employee that tells me you don't respect my personal time.
    2) If you want a truly generous vacation offering, get rid of the "unlimited" concept. Give 5 weeks of paid vacation that can be rolled over or paid out in compensation if unused.
