Network Quickie:

The disadvantages of RIP include:

Increased network traffic: RIP checks with its neighboring routers every 30 seconds, which increases network traffic.

Maximum hop count: RIP has a maximum hop count of 15, which means that on large networks, other remote routers may not be able to be reached.

Closest may not be shortest: Choosing the closest path by hop count does not necessarily mean that the fastest route was selected. RIP does not consider other factors when calculating best path.

RIP only updates neighbors so the updates for non-neighboring routers are not first-hand information.
