    Terrible Environment

    (Current Employee)

    ProsNot sure there are any except that it's a job at a company. If you need a job and have no other prospects...then ok, work here. I used to believe in the product but we've been having hard times with product sales so maybe a positive is that we'll likely get bought in the future. Who knows.

    ConsThere are so many cons.... Look elsewhere. Fear-based culture. High turnover. Nasty, micromanaging VPs. CEO is mostly in Israel and this ship is run by VPs that manage by undermining. Makes for a dysfunctional environment.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWhat goes around comes around. People have long memories in the Valley and you never know when today's direct report will move on to become someone that will return the favor.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Garbage

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGood place for younger men and women to be used and abused........................

    ConsTheir product line is a junk with full of bugs, obnoxious staff, lack of communications, directions, no respect and list goes on and on...........

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet a life! learn how to manage people, respect people, work with them, trust them, but then again if you had these values you won't be working for Imperva!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Poor management

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThey have some great hardworking people that are experts in their field.

    ConsThe management is lost with no direction. They hired managers with lots of experience who still manage the way they did 20 years ago. In this culture it is ok for managers to disappear for months and come back to only harass and demean everyone around them while being no actual value to the sales cycle.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIts hard to give advice when the management is the problem. Poor managers only deflect the problems they create on the people below them.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great technology but a horrible place to work - LOOK ELSEWHERE!

    Direct Sales (Current Employee) Redwood City, CA

    ProsIndustry Leader in their space.

    ConsImperva is VERY cut throat and regularly terminates top performers for mysterious reasons. Imperva is also, very, very difficult to do business with from a customer's perspective. Succeeding in this very competitive space is tough enough without constantly having to replace departing team personnel and then playing catch-up to make the ground lost by the rediculous termination of top performing employees. It's always "one step forward and two steps back" and has been this way since 2003 / 2004.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAllow your team members sufficient time to complete their projects and quit changing personnel every 3-6 months.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Has potential, needs serious development

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    Pros- Technology has lots of potential
    - Still under the radar of most big players
    - Some unique selling points

    Cons- Still immature
    - Work environment very different from anything I have seen in the past 15 years

    Advice to Senior Management- Allow professionals to be professionals, or don't onboard them!
    - Think big!
    - Listen!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
