Pros

Imperva has an environment where hard work and effort is part of the culture. Working in previous environments where existing seems to be the status quo it is refreshing to see everyone willing to put in the extra effort to accomplish a goal. The company is not afraid to make changes to senior leadership which has produced an extremely capable and experienced group of executives to lead Imperva.

Cons

if a person does not like to work hard and put in extra effort I would look for another opportunity for employment.

    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.

    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.
