    Pros

    Rapid7 is a terrific place to build both a meaningful career as well as important products. The tools we build actively help our customers and I'm very proud of that fact. In the 4 years that I've been with the company there have been some growing pains but overall leadership has been thoughtful in how they foster long-term growth and both the financial and cultural health of the company. As for specific pros: pay is...

    Cons

    Some of the perks of a tech company are missing. Would be nice to have subsidized public transportation. Pay is a little bit under market. Better 401k match would be nice and the insurance plans are a little bit limited. Teams tend to silo themselves and working across products and geographic locations can be difficult. Some strong personalities can lead to Not Invented Here and reinventing the wheel which can lead...

    Advice to Management

    Keep hammering on our culture. It's the best thing about working at Rapid7. Better raises couldn't hurt either.

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

    Pros

    Flexible time, great co-workers, recent tech stack, very good benefits: health insurance ,pension , Dublin engineering department small enough for one engineer to make a difference and not only be small cog in big company. Very accommodating management internally can change roles / move teams whenever feasible.

    Cons

    Some legacy components, test frameworks slowing down innovation and dev but nothing out of ordinary .

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work

    I worked at Rapid7 full-time

    Pros

    Good location Nice snacks ...That's about it.

    Cons

    This place is a boiler room from Sales to Customer Success and every other department. Since my departure, there have been at least 15+ other people to leave including management/director level and sales top performers. They brag about the culture, but you're expected to live/breathe on how they want you to interact with customers. Don't bother coming in with a mind of your own, be prepared to drink the coolaid.

    Advice to Management

    Let people use their individual skills to succeed in the positions you placed them in. Remove toxic management (as other people have commented). Hire an HR team that is helpful.

    June 6, 2019

    I'm really sorry to hear this was your experience at Rapid7. Our company has grown tremendously over the past several years, and we work hard to evolve what worked well in the past to what is now more appropriate for our current size, team, etc. Sales is one of those areas in a ...

    I worked at Rapid7 full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Unlimited paid time off is about it.

    Cons

    The pay compared to other companies is lacking. Also, they give crazy pay to certain individuals who are buddy-buddy with managers even though they only have a handful of years experience. I seen guys with almost 20 years experience get paid less than others who know significantly less. The pentesting director doesn't care about anyone but himself and is "clicky" with different people who all magically got promoted before...

    Advice to Management

    My advice would be to fire the managers for the pentesting team including the director and start over. They are causing everyone on the team to flee. Put some real focus back on your employees because if you start with that, they will want to work harder and do more/better.

    July 1, 2019

    Thank you for sharing your feedback...and although I'd challenge the accuracy of some of your claims, I appreciate that the pen testing team and the way the team was structured when you joined has evolved. Yes, we did edit the way our pentesters were paid earlier this year; and in ...
