Featured Review

Current Employee - Software Engineer

I have been working at Rapid7 full-time for more than a year

Pros

- Brilliant engineering managers who give timely feedback, mentor well and keep you in the loop - Amazing events organized by Workplace Experience Coordinators - Great higher level management -... Engineers are given time and resources to address technical debt - No micro-management; what matters is the work you deliver - Very flexible work-hours; as long as you attend your meetings and get your work done, no questions are asked - Realistic expectations meaning amazing work-life balance and low stress; if you so choose it (there's always more work to be done) - Great testing approach (TDD) which means high velocity and confidence in product along with frequent deployments - Great compensation and benefits: RSUs with frequent vesting, ESPP, yearly bonus, good life/health insurance, pension plan with great employee matching on contributions - Generally all great engineers in the office (few bad apples who have no attention to detail or aren't good collaborators or sadly both) - Engineers own the technical side, if you want to change anything you can as long as you get your pull request reviewed

Cons

- There's A LOT of legacy components and a lot of work to be done to be able to scale more efficiently and addressing technical debt - Office politics: if you're not liked by a clique of people at... the top you're probably screwed, you'll have a toxic employment and have people talking behind your back, there's certainly a few people you want to avoid as much as possible
