    Pros

    Some really smart people work here. Company is happy to send employees to conferences. Lots of fun company outings. Developers are given a lot of autonomy to go and change things if they think it will improve the system and new ideas are always welcome. Everyone in the office I work in has been super nice and always will to help out even if they aren't on my direct team.

    Cons

    Occasionally there are some growing pains since the company has been moving from a small town medium/large company pretty rapidly. Career development path isn't always easy to decipher, hard to tell what you need to do to move up. The company always seems to be open to suggestions for fixing issues though.

    Pros

    There's so many; great company, great tech, great culture...

    Rapid7 is a market leader, a visionary, a revolutionary in a market with high growth potential - important for those driven, even just partially, by money.

    The company is growing fast, yet is retaining that family-feel - a double positive.

    And the growth allows for many development and progression opportunities, of which there's a positive track record of success.

    All staff (or Moose) share the same core values that fundamentally deliver meaningful customer partnerships. If you need help, ask - in my experience, everyone's happy to share their time.

    The training and on-boarding is fun, interactive and doesn't expect you to cram it all into week 1 before left alone... we're all continuously learning

    Cons

    I'm really struggling to think of a con! Of course there are challenges, but that's the nature of the job.
    Oh, I know, the traffic if you leave at 5.30pm - best leaving a little before, or working a little later.

    Advice to Management

    To management, and to all... let's keep doing what we're doing

    I worked at Rapid7 full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    * Good pay and benefits
    * Variety of interesting projects
    * Smart people to learn from (if you look hard enough, it's not the loudest ones)

    Cons

    * Strong drinking culture, not particularly inclusive
    * Some members of staff can display aggression (verbally and physically)
    * Poor direct management, despite the flagging of issues like mentioned above and promises they'd be addressed, nothing ever changed
    * Can be very cliquey
    * Needs to be more mature

    Advice to Management

    don't think it's going to make a difference
