    I have been working at Rapid7 full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    The culture is amazing - 99% of all you work with are "all-in", the products are amazing and Rapid7 is always looking towards growing, in a GOOD way.

    Cons

    Working remote can be both a pro and a con. Sometimes you can feel disconnected but that is the nature of working remote.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on keeping on.

    I have been working at Rapid7 full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    I think the culture here is amazing. I didn't realize how important that was to me until I came here. The product is the best. I feel like I can win every bakeoff.

    Cons

    I wish the compensation was better. I would never consider leaving! I feel like I can make a solid living but my compensation is well short of what others earn in similar roles with other companies.

    Advice to Management

    I would consider try to keep better pace on the compensation side through pay and/ or equity I would try to do a better job of recognizing people for a job well done

  3. Good Company - Could be more organized

      Rapid7 is a fantastic company, but it has its (seemingly normal?) drawbacks

      I have been working at Rapid7 full-time

      Pros

      The straight up best environment I've ever worked in. The culture is phenomonal, the people are helpful and inspiring. You are truly working with the best in the security industry here. You are challenged to solve complex problems every day. The health insurance is great!

      Cons

      You will not be paid what you're worth here, most of the time. Out of band raises (even for those who can warrant it) are rare; you're expected to take promotions without raises, essentially just a "title" raise. I think this is less of a problem with Rapid7 and more of a corporate culture issue (being prepared to "job hop" to get what you're worth, essentially)

      Advice to Management

      Evaluate talent and give raises accordingly. 3% raise is NOT a raise, it's keeping up with inflation!

      I have been working at Rapid7 full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      - Solid sales dev program. Helps if you have some sales experience before to be sure but there is plenty of opportunity to learn. - Teaming is incredible. Everyone is willing to help and teach. - Broad portfolio to sell from in the dev stages. You specialize later on. - Solid benefits and great culture. - Clear path to advancement.

      Cons

      - Slightly below average pay compounded with comp plan confusion. Money will be better in a closing role.

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

      Pros

      Great community and culture, pay is competitive as well

      Cons

      little to no onboarding training, can make understanding what you should be doing a little difficult.

      Advice to Management

      Create a more on the job type training program. I never did shadowing or anything and was asked to do my job on day one before I knew what to do.

      I worked at Rapid7 full-time for more than 4 years

      Pros

      I worked at Rapid7 before the IPO. There was lots of opportunity for growth prior to IPO. I think there was still lots of opportunity after the IPO, but there was a lot of competition within my team for advancement. I enjoyed the work culture at Rapid7 and the people I worked with.

      Cons

      My career seemed like it stalled. I was looking for advancement opportunities, but that may have been a long road. I wasn't able to fully take advantage of the unlimited vacation perk at first, but eventually things settled down and I was able to.

      Advice to Management

      The company is able to succeed because the products are popular, especially given the current landscape. Challenge your employees. Make them feel like you need them there.

      Great culture and core values, opportunity to make impact

      Cons
