I worked at Rapid7 full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Great technology, Very team oriented, exposure to every line of business. work hard play hard culture, Tons of fun competitive contests. Working for a company with a greater cause. Good career opportunity

Cons

Demanding work hours and constantly charging at the number. Alignment of supporting organizations can be inconsistent. Significant growth in workforce makes things feel like constant change. Not bad things, however If you are not interested in making a personal impact at the company, this will not be the right fit for you

Advice to Management

Continue to communicate. With the rapid growth, the lack of space has made it a challenge for Executive management to communicate. Sales has an understanding of the role they play but understanding the bigger picture and how we all as an organization play into the overall success is paramount. Executive team will make time to communicate one on one but it can be a little bit intimidating to ask for time intitially

    I have been working at Rapid7 full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Always lively, great culture, lots of buzz, and a player in the marketspace. Also, one of the few places that people seem to know exactly what you sell and the good things they've heard. I would say that this is probably the toughest job you'll ever love, and it's worth the extra effort. To hell with the Peace Corps, Rapid7 is the place to be.

    Cons

    They expect you to be at 100% all the time, so it really is a work hard/play hard environment, so be sure to drink your red bulls.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the excellent work. Your leadership is excellent, and helps us all see what the real goals are for this place. The loud music and fun, and the nights out are important, but real business conversations like we've been having are super helpful!

    Pros

    I learn something new every single day at Rapid7. As a member of the sales team, I am consistently learning how to overcome obstacles, think on my feet, creatively break into new accounts, and maximize every deal that I am working on. Throughout the process, I am supported by my colleagues and management, who are both genuinely invested in my personal and professional development. The team here is smart and receptive to feedback. I like that I can turn to any of my colleagues for feedback on accounts for new perspective.

    Cons

    Be prepared to work hard in a competitive environment.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the transparency as we continue to grow.
