    I have been working at Imperva full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    This organization is focused on being the best of the best and have demonstrated such in both it's product developments and the way they treat their employees. I joined about 2 months ago and have been blown away by the amount of care that each and every executive seems to give for even the lowest level employee. They are meticulous in their efforts to keep both customers and employees happy.

    Cons

    Not much in terms of cons. The workforce is spread out across the globe so face-to-face time is limited, but they are very willing to allow travel to get around this obstacle.

    Pros

    - Work with smart, driven and experienced employees based all over the world. You can learn a lot about cyber security, SaaS, global business environments, etc talking with everyone at the company. I've been impressed with everyone's ability to output at a high level while still having time to work across groups and be willing to share insights and experiences with new employees. New management has great experience and a strong work ethic. Overall it is just a great place to learn from a lot of talented people. - Market leading technology - ranked best WAF by analysts 6 years in a row - protecting the world's largest companies facing the most complex cyber problems. - Flexible WFH policies - Overall company is setting up to produce great results and continue to be a leader in cybersecurity for years to come.

    Cons

    - None that aren't standard in most companies.

    Pros

    Good people in general and lower management care & I will be out of the door soon.

    Cons

    New C-Level are totally inexperienced. The CEO is a first time CEO and out of her depth. The CCO and the CRO are clueless in the security space. All three are self serving, arrogant, and are creating a toxic, awful culture. Gone are the days of respect and good principles. The company is in a mess. Great talent are leaving in droves. Extremely TOXIC highly political place to work.
