Cons

    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

    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

    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

    I have been working at Rapid7 full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It's a young workforce, lots of potential, great product, expanding market place, feel very lucky to be working here. Specifically, I would list:
    teamwork
    technology
    vibrant culture
    flexible working
    opportunity
    growth

    Cons

    If you're not into technology, don't want to be learning new things all the time, and want rigid leadership then this is not the place for you.

    Advice to Management

    The challenge is to maintain such a vibrant culture whilst growing the company.

    Pros

    Great people, excellent culture and a set of values anyone can get behind.

    Cons

    They're in the "scaling" phase. This can be tough if you're looking to come in the door and revolutionize the foundation. That's already set, be looking to manage change and become flexible.

    Advice to Management

    Don't stop listening to your teams. The people are key. You hired top talent for a reason, get out of their way. :)
