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

Pros

1) Each and everyone working at Imperva has in-depth expertize in their area, these are professionals that you WANT to work with
2) Team and department leaders are there to help you evolve and develop your skills even farther. They are also people who you can really talk to in tough times, and ones that you could consider as your friend.
3) Imperva works hard to promote its own people to team leader/management roles.
4) Great HR people - you feel their involvement in every non-technical aspect of the company. You get a lot of perks on an ongoing basis.

Imperva works hard to solve a range of technical and regulatory problems for enterprise companies. If you are technically minded, you will definitely find it interesting and rewarding to work at Imperva.

Cons

Imperva is a global company. You may be required to be flexible with your hours to be able to work with people in remote offices (and in different timezones) ...

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

    Pros

    Imperva was able to attract very smart and skillful people in the past. The pace is very fast and it's a great place to learn. The CEO is very strong and has been very successful in advancing the company.

    Cons

    Mistakes are quickly punished, and promotion opportunities seem to be decided more on who you know than what are your skills.

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

    Pros

    Great technology- great CEO.
    Good salary and perks

    Cons

    Lack of support- no annual reviews- no HR reviews-
    Middle management - complete lack of professionalism- sending email alls critisizing staff on several occasions
    Huge hours- weekdays and weekends- 70+ hour weeks
    Targets completely unrealistic- rose by 80 % YoY- when company is only achieving 30 % growth YoY
    Management hiring without any interaction with existing employees where sales teams are very small and getting along is very important- causing much division within teams- shows lack of planning by management
    Management ask for feedback, then critisize if any negative feedback given, and do nothing about it

    I would not work for this company again if I had the choice- small company feel- complete lack of resources- including presales and professional services to complete orders and assist in POCs during sales cycle. Management live month to month- which will severely impact the companies ability to penerate large federal and state government accounts with longer sales cycles- when I was there Imperva had very high attrition in sales team working in US Canada Fed Govt teams.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Now as the company approaches 500 to 600 employees mew policies need to be enforced to ensure professionalism at ALL levels including management- to ensure professional conduct at all times. Management act unto themselves, not addressing staff concerns- firing instead of fixing problems.
    Middle Management must act more professional- or CEO/XO needs to find new middle management who act professional at all times- otherwise staff will continue to leave the organisation for these reasons.
