    Pros

    Amazing environment to build a career. Rapid7 has done a fantastic job screening for smart and empathetic people who just want to make an impact in the world - which is why the average longevity is excellent (especially for tech). It really is the varsity squad - people on every team really know their area well and are happy to help cross-functionally. Rapid7 invests heavily in employee growth & development so there are many avenues to explore as the company continues to grow at a fast pace. The Boston office is something (spectacular) out of a movie set - which promotes collaboration and good focus time as well.

    Cons

    With such fast-paced growth, maintaining relationships and connections with various teams can be challenging - something most growth companies experience.

    Pros

    Great culture, very smart people, amazing management team, they care about your personal aspirations, high growth company (and doesn't seem like they'll slow down any time in the near future)

    Cons

    Might not be for everybody. It's very fast paced and people are very hard-working. If you're someone who wants a safe 9-5 job, this is not the place.

    Pros

    Everyone at Rapid7 is smart, dedicated, driven, talented, and nice. It's kind of strange. The company culture is really something special. They are by far my favorite client.

    Cons

    It's very fast paced and that can make it hard to keep up with an ever-evolving target for projects. It has had some "frat" mentality problems in the past but is trying to grow out of it.

    I have been working at Rapid7 full-time

    Pros

    - Fast paced. - The individual people are incredible. Great people; smart to work with, enjoyable company, great to have a drink with after. - Career growth/learning potential can be great. - Flexible in regards to work schedule (job dependent). - Learning resources are plentiful concerning the industry and individual growth. - You need to be responsible for yourself to make sure you get your work done but also turn it off when you need to. - Pretty transparent exec staff.

    Cons

    - Fast paced is great for those that can handle it; at times it's hard to keep up. - Mentors can be hard to come by. You're in charge of your own learning; learning resources are plentiful but it's what you make of them. With such a fast paced culture, its hard to make time for your own development. - 'Mature' benefits are a bit lagging (401k, comp, comp reviews, etc). - Work/Life balance can be tough at times.
