    Pros

    Excellent Product, People, and Pay. Dynamic CEO doing great things to drive outstanding results. Director and Manager of this department bring the smarts and support to make each of us successful. An outstanding product to sell, at a time when it couldn't be more needed. Accelerators w/ no cap. Nice perks: gym w/ showers, weekly lunches brought in, walking areas right nearby. Great to be here - a win-win for everyone.

    Cons

    Not much to criticize - everyone pulls their own weight.

    Advice to Management

    Whatever you're doing, it's working. Keep up the terrific efforts!

    Pros

    Imperva is the best when it comes to Data Security. It is a pleasure working with a great team.

    Cons

    The morale of the team is pretty low mainly because management especially the Dir of Inside Sales all the way down to the sales managers have know idea how to inspire, motivate and coach the team.

    Advice to Management

    Attend Leadership and Management classes. You cant lead a team if all you do is stay in your room.

    Pros

    Technology is great
    Vision is good
    Execution is good
    Marketing is good

    Cons

    Corporate management is arrogant and ruthless to employees and clients alike
    Incapsula team support organization are arrogant and condescending
    Sales management under Mike Mooney is draconian and manages personnel to the lowest common denominator

    Advice to Management

    It's not "all about the numbers," it takes good people to make a company work well as a team - saying that you've made a management transition without substantive turnover is hugely premature given that those stakeholders with options are now (May 2015) cashing out and leaving.

    Don't hire failed yes men as second level and first level sales managers who have no other skills than to be prescriptive (wheres the numbers, whats the plan to get there) vs. positive, supportive coaches.

    Pros

    Great product. People who work there really are passionate about the company and products. Good salary for the area but not the highest. The IT team is top notch – so patient and incredibly helpful even while traveling for work.

    Cons

    A lot of changes to executive and management teams had created a lot of turnover through layoffs and people leaving due to all of the changes. There are also a lot of employees who are being brought in by the executive team and they are pushing people who have been at the company for a long time out of their jobs.

    Pros

    Salary is average with industry.

    Cons

    Company has problems with sales and engineers. Can't keep them. Change at the CEO/Sr. Management level may help, but causes more confusion about the company, which may not be good. Popular rumor is the company is being setup to be sold.

    Pros

    Incapsula has a great product and competes in an exciting market. The team is largely assembled of Rock-stars so there are ample opportunities to learn, both from management and co-workers. The environment is fast paced, and fun, making coming to work a blast.

    Cons

    Redwood Shores is a less than ideal place for the office, it is neither in the city, nor in the valley.

    Pros

    Management gives clear direction, and supports you on your career path.

    Cons

    There isnt anything that stands out in my mind as a major problem. There are little things here and there that could be made better, but all companies have there little issues.

    Pros

    Great and supportive environment. You work with people who are concerned about you as an employee and as their friend. The IT team is top notch. Lots of experience and very innovative in dealing with a wide variety of issues 24/7.

    Cons

    There did seem to be some disconnect with a lot of the managers, but a very forward-thinking and energized CEO is helping everyone get back into the groove and most employees feel extremely positive about the foreseeable future of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Stick with what is working. Push for a strong and positively motivated sales team. Market that which pays the bills, but don't be afraid to change the game every now and again. Keep that small company feel, even as the company sees a growth spurt.
