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.

    I have been working at Imperva full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Great market position - world leader in more than one domain
    - Super nice people
    - Strong social life

    Cons

    - Too much in the now, not enough vision and roadmap

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Tell people where you want to go and let them take you there- you don't need to be in the details for things to work
    - Listen more to people's opinions and perspectives - there's a chance they know about the problem, and maybe even the solution, than you do
