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

Pros

Get to work from home or small region and decent travel opportunities.

Cons

Very long work hours. If you are not sales, takes a lot of blood sweat and tears to grow the organization. Current organizational model is not scale-able and not sustainable. People get burnt out easier than other companies I've been at. Only the very strong survive and even prosper.

Advice to Management

Hire more regional managers to allow those regions to grow and not saddle upper management so much of the lower-level operations. This may be the case with sale, but not with the operations and support organizations.

    I worked at Imperva full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Shlomo is a leader in the industry and proves it. Great space in the market and top performer in security. The rank and file employees are dedicated and passionate about what they do. Great collaboration in teams and willing to help. Much pride in what everyone does to help customers. Very committed to the success of customers.

    Cons

    The positive culture in Israel doesn't exist in other locations, especially not in the US. Very long hours, no raises, very short staffed in GA and in services. High turnover in management that leads to a lack of trust overall by the lower level employees and starting over. Work hours are excessive and not recoginized. Travel expectations for field team is unreasonalble due to lack of staff. The corporate office environment is very uncomfortable.

    Advice to Management

    Shlomo needs to get in touch with the people, seems to be isolated from the field and the issues at hand that will be a deterrent to desired growth.

    Pros

    Innovative technology, good people and managers. Possible to get promoted and explore new areas of career path.

    Cons

    Not a generous company in terms of compensation and benefits, sometimes getting things done in personal terms taking time and requiring patience.

    Advice to Management

    Be more generous in terms of benefits and compensation, allow faster promotions for oldcomers.
