    Pros

    Outstanding senior leadership team who are very down to earth, open and honest. Solid values which are actually measured and driven. Relaxed and fun atmosphere. Great social and team building events. Support with external training initiatives.

    Cons

    Bureaucracy is our biggest challenge. This place is growing fast and prior processes and approval chains must be simplified to scale.

    Advice to Management

    Simplify life by imparting greater trust in employees to avoid bureaucracy

    Pros

    Lots of autonomy to get on it and do the job.

    Cons

    Horrible! Whilst you are left alone to get on with the job you will have no support when you ask. Processes are a complete mess and management do nothing to rectify it!

    Pros

    An outstanding and genuine culture. The best senior leadership I've seen in 20+ years in IT.

    Cons

    We move so fast that at times, our tools and processes haven't kept up. That's recognised and changing!

    Pros

    I have been working at Rapid7 for just over 18 months and have progressed to a different role in this time. This is a company that wants all of their staff to succeed. Rapid7 is a young, vibrant company in which I feel I am an integral cog. I feel there is opportunity to make a huge difference in this company and to keep moving through the ranks. This is backed up by leadership and colleagues believing in each other and creating a positive and happy culture within the organisation. Rapid7 truly is a company that you can grow and learn with in tandem.
    There are plenty of incentives and treats for the staff to maintain this culture as we grow, some of these include, company sponsored staff events, trips, charity give back days and more.
    Training and enablement are frequent and colleagues from across the globe are willing to help with additional training or to jump on a call to help at the drop of a hat.
    All in all, Rapid7 has been good to me and that in turn has made me feel valued, comfortable and I enjoy work, it is strange not getting that Monday feeling!
    I can see a long future at Rapid7 and would recommend it to anyone.

    Cons

    Some processes are driven out of the USA, so with time differences this can cause some delays. It really is a minor qualm that the leadership look to be resolving currently.

    Advice to Management

    Some local based process staff would help processes move faster.

    I worked at Rapid7 full-time

    Pros

    Great open approach to sales within new markets, Tech is very much in demand.

    Cons

    Support structure is mainly driven from the US, it doesn't work outside of this region, but changes were being made

    Advice to Management

    Listen to customer and employees a little more
