    I worked at Rapid7 full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    It was close to the south station other than that I cannot think of anything good about this place. It was a nightmare to work in this company. I have seen a manager who was so inappropriate he use to floss at his desk yuck (Gagging as I am writing this review) Scratch his private parts not thinking that there are girls/women around. He was inappropriate about making jokes about his pregnant wife, also a racist to the core (no kidding, made so many jokes about Indian/Asian/black people in team meetings). To make things worse, he hired a guy who was an accused rapist(huge story on insta #metoo by that girl), anyways the director was good enough to ask the guy to leave. I am writing this review as I was asked by few people at R7 and it was important for people to know how bad the work culture is at this company. Work life balance sucks so royally you have no idea until you land there to work. I am super happy (can't emphasize enough) that I made a right decision by leaving this company.

    Cons

    Mgmt forces employees to write good reviews about the company, people considering to work for this company please talk to former employees. I wish glassdoor has an option. Pretty immature leadership, more focused on trying to look cool than living by their principals. Seriously very disrespectful to women. This is very accurate - Management can't get themselves together. They change their minds weekly and get upset when you can't understand what they want. Senior management will ignore you even if they see you daily. It's like you're always a stranger unless they need something. There is "unlimited vacation time" but you will be reprimanded if you take it. Managers and senior management gossip about other employees in front of everyone. Each manager does reporting a different way so you will never get it right. Be ready to be "thrown under the bus" even if you did what was asked.

    Rapid7 Response

    April 15, 2019

    Wow, I'm incredibly horrified to read this review, and to learn of the experience you had here. I wish that you had raised this to our senior leadership who could have taken action to address while you were here, telling us anonymously allows us to only guess at what and who you are referring to, which doesn't give us the best opportunity to investigate or make appropriate changes if necessary. Interestingly, we've been doing some work with women on the sales floor (who now make up 26% of our AE team) , and have heard very little of this sentiment, so we'll keep digging. I'm so sorry this was your experience, but I invite you to give me a call so we can discuss in more depth; we seek to build the best possible environment for our people, and your comments are clearly not representative of that. My cell is 617.233.9629. Christina Luconi Chief People Officer

    I have been working at Rapid7 full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I have been with Rapid7 for over 3 years now, and with that, I've seen this company evolve from a "all hands on deck, anything to get the deal over the line" start up feeling company to what it is today, which can be better described as medium sized organization with ambitious growth goals and looking for the best way to balance scale and maintaining culture along the way. I looked over some of the recent reviews of people saying "there's no work life balance," "you need to make 50 dials / day" etc. and then I reflect on some of the people who have left in the last 12 months. Yes, we lost some good people out there, folks who had been top performers and natural leaders across the sales floor who are missed for both their morale and their contributions to Rapid7. But for the most part, we've lost people who didn't have any passion for the job, for the organization, and weren't willing to put in the work. They weren't coachable, they didn't want to try new things and get creative, or lean into learning. And many of these folks got lucky in the first 6 months with monster deals that fell onto their plate, and then when it came time to build their own brand, they bailed. I don't miss these people. What I can say is that I've built my sales career here. I started back in 2014 as a awkward wobbly sales rep (at best), but took advantage of the mentors and management around me (yes, I sought it out - nothing was handed to me, and those who took the time were not taken for granted). Fast forward to now, I'm a top sales rep coaching others to be successful, and my prospects / customers WANT to talk to me - not only because I'm good at my job now but because our technology and services are helping them be successful. And that's worth a lot. Yes, there's still hunting (which I enjoy) but at least we're not hearing Rapid7 who? We're hearing, "I've heard you guy are doing great things over there, I'm willing to hear you out." And also to debunk another myth - I take over about 4 weeks of vacation, come in and leave when I want, and never feel guilty about it. I also go to the gym 3x/week during lunch and just work my sales calls around my personal schedule. Our management trusts we're adults and let us do what we want as long as we're doing our job. Just do your job. I'm writing this not because anyone asked me to, but because it frustrates me that people who are coming onto this website and looking at these reviews won't get the full picture. We value hard working, passionate people who are willing to put in the work and be coachable. That hasn't and will never change.

    Cons

    Said growing pains: 1. Some shifts in direction, but I think we're on the right path now. I trust my leadership team, and I appreciate that they're willing to take risks, and also brave enough to re-steer the ship when needed. 2. Aging systems - We're currently in the processing of modernizing our systems and processes to align with our higher demand. But in the meantime, things have been a bit less efficient.
