    Pros

    It was a great place with people who worked well as a team. Everyone worked hard and it was exciting to come to work each day. The industry is exciting as well as the products are excellent.

    Cons

    Upper management changed and the general feel of the company became tense. One manager has had more than 10 people leave her dept voluntarily. The atmosphere is tense and, despite the rising stock price, many people are unhappy.

    Advice to Management

    Hang on the remaining people. Listen to their concerns and work to make the company great once again. A company is more than just its stock price.

    Pros

    Can make outstanding money if you are DSA and you get the best resources. If not, its a grind that has people turning over constantly. The CA reject management team sucks and has no clue how to sell this sophisticated technology or work with partners. They make demands for more deals and pipeline but don't know how to help create the deals and embarrass themselves. The sales people don't want them on calls agai and invent reasons to keep them away. The CEO is pretty cool and sales friendly. The DSA program accounts for most all the deals and those guys seem happy, but the leader of that group won't interview legacy people--only looking outside for talent which is a shame.

    Cons

    The newer CA leadership is awful

    Advice to Management

    Dump the CA turkeys, thats why were all leaving.

    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.
