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

Pros

Free snacks, cool office, and exciting industry

Cons

No job security or respect for each other. Honesty, integrity and kindness are hard to come by in this office. Don't bother asking questions or for help with something, because it will make you look weak to your manager and team. There's still a lot of changes and kinks in the company path and culture, many changes to many teams that are not always good or for the better. Motto said amongst most employees is Rapid Hire Rapid Fire.

Advice to Management

Communication and Respect for employees is important. A lot of private conversations among managers about the team, without actually keeping the team in the loop. Employees should have a better idea how they are perceived by their manager and if they are not meeting expectations rather than being blindsided. Open communication on performance would be beneficial on a regular basis.

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

    Pros

    - great products
    - goal oriented company
    - cool working location
    - good salary when performing on or over target
    - great brand
    - awesome parties after exhibitions
    - travel to prospects & customers

    Cons

    - political hornet's nest
    - lack of trust in their employees and questioning them through others
    - ethics are below standard
    - incredible high churn of people
    - they really don't care about their employees
    They don't even say goodbye to their top performers who are leaving R7. "See ya" is all they get.

    Advice to Management

    Middle and higher management should lead by example regarding ethics.
    Don't “bribe” employees to write positive reviews on sites like this after cool company events

    Pros

    Great perks - still feels like the 'start up' stage, but that's changing quickly.

    Cons

    Lot's of 'friends' that are put into positions of leadership that do substandard work.

    Advice to Management

    Retain quality employees, develop quality employees - don't get tied down with people that aren't cut out for the work.
