    Pros

    Hard-working people with a great energy. Fun coworkers make work enjoyable. Fast-paced and motivated work style.

    Cons

    Because Imperva is still in-between a startup and a major company, it has some growing pains. It lacks a solid organization/structure behind some processes and procedures.

    Pros

    Products are okay. Some good people left

    Top management looking to max out their compensation on the impending sale. Sales is a revolving door.

    Stop telling lies and insulting the intelligence of ur employees

    Pros

    The members of our sales team are wonderful and brilliant people. Too bad we keep losing them.

    Cons

    The management is awful. They promote people that have ZERO leadership experience and make them team leads. They are big on managing the sales team with fear. We have already lost half out sales team because of this and the upper management does nothing to fix this huge problem. We continue to hire new reps only for them to quit a couple months later. It's truly a revolving door here. All the current reps are looking for new jobs.

    Advice to Management

    Take a deeper look at the big problem.... it's the management and team leads. You will keep losing awesome sales reps bc of the way we are being treated.

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

    Pros

    Solid product that beats competition in head-to-head battles consistently. Good compensation that is starting to slide upwards as you stay at the organization. Good stable of experienced and smart co-workers that you can rely on for help when needed.

    Cons

    Executive leadership change has started to trickle down through the ranks. Many of the sales and field engineering teams have lost valuable members to other organizations and have been replaced with people from much larger organizations that have never sold in the space before. As such the culture is starting to change from a nimble, small company feel towards larger organization buried in process and culture of big companies like IBM, CA, and HP.

    Advice to Management

    Compensate teams appropriately. Stop the nepotism that is starting to run rampant in the field sales organizations. Just because you've worked with someone in the past, doesn't mean that they are qualified to in this space!

    I have been working at Imperva full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Was a tight family type place..we all would hang out. Past year so much change and no focus on workers

    Cons

    no one cares..exec's all hire family and own friends. Of course everyone gives great reviews...they all are new! CEO came in cleaned house..totally changed the vibe.

    Advice to Management

    really hear your employees. Growing is great but not at the cost of the people who worked hard to get you there. Just sell the company...we all know that is the goal for 2yrs now.

    Pros

    Fast growing company experiencing great success - ambitious leadership team that predicts 40% growth. The cyber security market is noticing Imperva and has high expectations that the company intends to meet, if not exceed.

    Cons

    It's busy and you will work hard here, which you are rewarded for in pay, equity, benefits and PTO.
