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.

    I worked at Imperva full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good people, challenging work, good product

    Cons

    Middle management (team leaders/team managers) have no idea what they are doing or what they should do, put a lot of pressure on team members, as a result of bad management and wrong commitments

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start investing in management couching, pay attention to your employees, reward them
