Pros

Industry Leader in their space.

Cons

Imperva is VERY cut throat and regularly terminates top performers for mysterious reasons. Imperva is also, very, very difficult to do business with from a customer's perspective. Succeeding in this very competitive space is tough enough without constantly having to replace departing team personnel and then playing catch-up to make the ground lost by the rediculous termination of top performing employees. It's always "one step forward and two steps back" and has been this way since 2003 / 2004.

Advice to Management

Allow your team members sufficient time to complete their projects and quit changing personnel every 3-6 months.

    I have been working at Imperva full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I've worked at Imperva over 9 years and have watched it grow and change. Everybody's door is open and people are willing to give you answers and help when you need them. The industry without doubt is fascinating and evolving. Working here you learn about information security and the technology behind it. Imperva has not only kept up, but has lead the industry, being one of the first to offer Cloud Security, in an array of different formats and on different platforms. The company has always been supportive, HR is there at every turn, helping you find what your looking for, whether that be working on the latest products, moving into management, or looking to advance or develop in other ways.

    Cons

    A distributed company has its challenges, sometimes getting information or a reply from an overseas location can be difficult. The company continues to find its way, with its third CEO in 4 years so change is constant. But that also reflects growth and development.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to scale the company, develop leading edge products and make the shareholders happy, that will contribute to employee satisfaction.
