      Amazing culture, inclusive environment - the varsity team

      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

      I really enjoy working at Rapid7 - it's a fast-paced environment, and you have to work hard to do well, but it's worthwhile. I enjoy spending time with my colleagues; coming in to work is actually fun, and rather than wanting to get away from the people I work with when the day is over, we hang out together. It's an environment where you're working with friends.

      Cons

      Most people would complain about not having a work-life balance. Really though, you just need to be self-motivated to fit in working here. If you're the type of person that doesn't WANT to put in 100%, you probably won't do very well. Sometimes this means staying late or coming in after hours to get things done. But that's what makes Rapid7 a unique company; people who work here want to do put in the extra effort, and it pays off.

      Incredible opportunity to grow

      Pros

      Rapid7’s culture is definitely top-notch with people who are truly passionate about their work across all departments. Everyone work extremely hard you can tell they are excited to come into work everyday and push themselves as well as the company to the next level. If you do your best work and thrive in a fast-paced environment, you will fit in well. My manager is invested in my own professional growth and development and offers the guidance I need to help me succeed. Opportunities to influence change are abundant. I have the chance to work on projects that are beyond my typical “job description.” High performers are able to take control of their careers and do what they wish with it.

      Cons

      If you’re looking for a slow-paced environment, this won’t be a good fit. You must be on top of your game.

      Good place to learn. Open ended career potential.

      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.

      Pros

      Unlimited growth potential Constant and instant feedback from management Strong sales training program - better than any I have experienced Mentor program for all sales reps Management training program starting as early as 6 months Competitive team based environment Not 100% commission Health and dental insurance after 30 days If you are driven and have strong work ethic, you can move into a management position within 1 year.

      Cons

      Long hours when you first get started First 6 months are extremely challenging No down time. Extremely fast paced. Work-life balance is a challenge in 1st 6-9 months

      Pros

      Fun workplace, young and vibrant management, unlimited vacation, and generous compensation. I always feel valued and know that people are watching what I do, appreciate my work and want me to succeed.

      Cons

      As with most small, rapidly growing companies no day is the same. Very fast-paced environment can leave some in the dust. Everyone here is a self-starter and very motivated.

      Rapid7 - The company without professionalism, honesty, integrity, ethics, or transparency.

      Pros

      Great products. Good experience. Builds a strong backbone. Most employees are willing to help teach and coach if you step up and ask. Fast paced & fun environment.

      Cons

      No work/life balance. It is very difficult to take a vacation without being seriously questioned or judged. If you are not in the office, employees are talking about you. Very political environment. Management clearly does not respect employees. No transparency - It's very difficult to get honest answers from management. Extremely high turnover. They say that work is from 8:00-5:00, but that is a lie. You typically work from 7:30-6:30 or later, and will end up working one of your weekend days.
