    Pros

    Great company and even better product. Company is making huge strides to correct some of the issues that have plagued it in previous years. New management is making some difficult but very necessary changes to help drive revenue.

    Cons

    Not the most exciting office environment. Previously there hasn't been much communication from senior management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up top-down communication and bringing in great leadership.

    Pros

    Working at Imperva has been like working for a start-up. There's constant change and if you're not a person who likes change then this is probably not where you should be. The atmosphere has always felt like family here; especially within individuals in my own department. I've met some incredibly wonderful and talented people here. I also love working for a company who prides themselves on producing quality products and are leaders in their space. Although, I don't know what the future holds for me here, I will always remember Imperva fondly for everything I've learned and the wonderful people who have helped me along the way.

    Cons

    2014 was a year of change.... A lot of change. For many, too much change. I would welcome being able to work from home a couple of days a week so as not to get into the daily grind of commuting 23 miles one-way. Other then the fact that they've always done it this way, there's no reason not to let us work remotely a couple days a week.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too much change in such a short time can bring on anxiety and discord. Let's make sure we're doing one thing right before we move on to the next thing. Also, please consider letting some of us work from home a couple days a week like many companies are doing to make it easier for their employees to stay. Otherwise, I guarantee you'll probably lose some good talent.

    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 (more than an year)

    Pros

    1) Each and everyone working at Imperva has in-depth expertize in their area, these are professionals that you WANT to work with
    2) Team and department leaders are there to help you evolve and develop your skills even farther. They are also people who you can really talk to in tough times, and ones that you could consider as your friend.
    3) Imperva works hard to promote its own people to team leader/management roles.
    4) Great HR people - you feel their involvement in every non-technical aspect of the company. You get a lot of perks on an ongoing basis.

    Imperva works hard to solve a range of technical and regulatory problems for enterprise companies. If you are technically minded, you will definitely find it interesting and rewarding to work at Imperva.

    Cons

    Imperva is a global company. You may be required to be flexible with your hours to be able to work with people in remote offices (and in different timezones) ...

    A company that recruits the best, and deeply cares about its own

    Pros

    Caring. To the deepest level.
    Everyone helps everyone
    If there is a goal, we will achieve it. The company has a laser-like focus ability and a great team
    Established enough so it's not quite a startup, yet still very open and easy in its culture

    Cons

    Some employers of similar characteristics offer higher salaries for the same jobs.

    Great, fast-growing security company

    Current Employee - Marketing Manager in Redwood Shores, CA

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

    Pros

    I've worked at Imperva for over six years and I've seen it mature from a start-up to a successful, publicly traded company. Despite this growth, though, Imperva has maintained the same culture and focus that initially drew me to the company.

    Pros include:
    1. Talented and motivated employees - everyone I work with is great. There's no back-stabbing or office politics.
    2. Long term vision - it is more fun to work at a company that meets its numbers quarter after quarter. Imperva's management team has the vision to make sure that we succeed.
    3. Reasonable work load - while everyone needs to contribute, Imperva is not a pressure cooker. Employees can maintain work-life balance (if they turn off their smartphones when they leave the office).

    Cons

    1. Lack of food options in Redwood Shores. I've had enough Specialties for two lifetimes.
    2. Rather long commute for me.
    3. Very little company gossip. No crazy stories or long-buried secrets.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay cool.

    I have been working at Imperva full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Well run, good people, professional management team. The company has a get-things-done culture, focused on performance and a team effort to drive results. I've been promoted internally, and that seems to be a general pattern: if there are good candidates internally, they are given the opportunity to advance their career.

    I have worked at large and small companies, and when it comes to Sales, Marketing, Services and R&D, I find NONE of the tensions and rivalries I have experienced at other companies. That is refreshing. People pull together to get things done and solve problems, not point fingers. Also, relatively speaking, I find almost no politics to speak of, which is also a welcome change from other companies.

    Cons

    Coordination and communication can be challenging with a globally dispersed team, but that seems to work pretty well.

    Growing Market Opportunity, Established Leadership, Competence in the DNA

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Redwood Shores, CA
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Redwood Shores, CA

    I have been working at Imperva full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I've worked at companies with strong management teams, and I've worked at companies that had an exciting and growing market opportunity. At Imperva there is both, which is hard to find. I wake up in the morning wanting to engage in my work, and for the most part like people throughout most parts of the company.

    Cons

    We work hard here - most weeks I enjoy it - this is not a place to coast or hide out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As we grow keep holding each team accountable for performance and core competency as has been done in the past - even as the skills mix of leaders may shift to those with experience running larger teams.

    I have been working at Imperva full-time

    Pros

    Imperva has been a great place to work. I really feel like everyone here works together to common goal. And as the company has grown, I've been able to grow my own career as well as those of my team along with it.

    Cons

    We work hard. For me this is a positive, I can always expect a counterpart to do what they need to do. I guess it's not for everyone though. (At the same time for me and my team, at least, the company acknowledges this and allows for flexibility on work hours, etc. when it's possible).
