I worked at Imperva full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

The work is generally interesting, the company is stable, the HR department insists on bringing in only nice people, there are several corporate fun activities per year.

Cons

The technologies used in R&D tend to be somewhat outdated. It is very hard to get a promotion, sometimes the management prefers to bring in new managers from outside rather than promote people from inside. There is a poor discussion culture, people tend to pay attention to the most assertive and loud speaker and ignore speakers who refuse to force their opinion in. Some people benefited from the IPO, but other than that there are no bonuses for hard working employees.

Advice to Management

Pay more attention to rewarding hard working employees, promote more people from inside. Pay more attention to the culture of discussion.

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

    Pros

    The company is upwards mobile, and it works in a very hot industry. The efforts are sometimes rewarded, and we do the best job in protecting customers.

    Cons

    There is too much office politics. There's no clear guidance on the vision and direction that the company should take, and for some employees the compensation leaves a lot to be desired.

    Advice to Management

    Who am I to?

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    CEO well-recognized in InfoSec space. Has taken a company IPO before. CEO is a very forward thinker. Really defined a new area in InfoSec. Nice office, free snacks. Encourage coworkers to mingle via monthly company catered lunches, holiday party, etc.

    Cons

    Too much work, not enough people = LONG HOURS. Boys club, unprofessional work environment. Favoritism.

    Advice to Management

    Create a more professional work environment. Only promote those that not only are top-performers but have the skill set to take on their newly appointed position.
