I worked at Imperva

Pros

I consistently liked working with people in every group at Imperva, including Sales, Product Management, Corporate Marketing, and Channel Marketing. Each employee was supportive, helpful, responsive, and adapted well to an often high pressured, deadline-driven environment.

Cons

The work environment is relatively somber, despite having the monthly company lunch to celebrate birthdays and special occasions. There is a lot of work, divided among small groups of people, which can be the source of occasional tension and less downtime.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

To try to understand employees better and give them an opportunity to express their views about new skills they want to attain and new projects they want to be involved in, and not just be subject to a top-down style of management wherein they are given specific tasks to complete.

    I have been working at Imperva

    Pros

    Industry Leader in their space.

    Cons

    Imperva 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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

    You'd be participating in an important endeavor, working at the forefront of technology. You will receive a lot of knowledge in the area of security. Like in many an Israeli hi-tech company, you'd be spoiled by our kitchens, trips and other events.

    Cons

    The job is often stressful as it is challenging to produce quality software on time. You will have to set your own boundaries, and it is up to you to feel comfortable with the level of stress that you want to endure in the long and short terms.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Carry on, guys. I'll tell you privately what I think.
