    Pros

    - Compensation and opportunities for advancement correlate directly with your contributions and dedication, it will not go unnoticed. - Innovation and experimentation are highly encouraged. You are free to use the technologies and solutions that best fit the task at hand. - The sense of community and work life balance is remarkable; they really go above and beyond to provide you with all of the resources you need for success.

    Cons

    - This company's culture is one of innovation and pushing the envelope. While the community is there to help you succeed, and will do all it can to set you up for success, you are expected to be a self starter and passionate about the work you do.

    I have been working at Rapid7 full-time

    Pros

    Agile environment, ship-first mentality, eagerness to embrace new technology to solve problems

    Cons

    Politics but that’s everywhere. Upper management advocate a culture of inclusion and respect but there is zero actual enforcement. Aside from business results there is little accountability for managers treating employees poorly or taking advantage of them

    Pros

    Free stuff Nice office Paid Lunches and trips

    Cons

    Extremely political 10 people quit or were forced to quit in 2018. Some of them had been there for years. Leadership is extremely weak, cowardly and cannot take criticism. Extremely comfortable with the status quo extremely rude and incompetent office management Arrogant and Rude senior members of the teams. Confidence killing leads. Encourage overworking - burnt out team members. Management deaf to advice

    I have been working at Rapid7 full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Rapid7 has a genuine dedication to learning and experimentation. The company is still a genuine meritocracy, good ideas come for all places and new thinking is an essential element. The company is growing, both in terms of number of people, in knowledge, and in the scope of problems we are able to take on.

    Cons

    For better or for worse, you have to be a fairly self-motivated person to succeed here. This isn't like joining some 10,000 person enterprise where a 3-month on-boarding program provides you with all the on the job training you could imagine. You learn by doing, just like everyone around you.

    I worked at Rapid7

    Pros

    - Many smart people to work around, but the culture overinflates a few heads - The business truly seems to want their employees to succeed - Fun coworkers with a flexible, albeit extended schedule

    Cons

    - Expectations vary greatly depending on which office you work in - Management problems in remote offices goes largely unnoticed - The chest beating mentality often results in poor self-criticism. The casualties of this system are quickly dismissed with some professional flaw
