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

    Pros

    This is a HOT market. What we do is relevant in todays current events around the globe and being at the center of it is exciting, educational and intellectually challenging. You really can write your own path through Imperva. Want to expand your role? just work towards it! Want to put in your time and then try out something on the other side of company?.. Prove your worth and you will be supported. Lots of opportunity here.

    Cons

    There is always a "next thing". If you are waiting for your current challenge to be over so you can rest on your laurels for a while, this is not the job for you. Once you get up on this technology treadmill, you better be ready to hit "10" and keep running until you drop ;-) But that is what I like. It is what keeps me coming to work everyday!

    Advice to Management

    Over communicate and keep providing great opportunities for your employees. Its a great team with lots of spirit and drive. Keep recognizing them and they will keep working hard to make this company drive forward in top gear..

    Pros

    Feels like a startup without the risk and crazy hours, being part of a huge success, small team having a huge impact, great culture, amazing team, very interesting technology

    Cons

    Duality of a small company that was acquired by a larger company, a distributed team(Israel/US), the stock has seen better times

    Advice to Management

    Maintain the great culture of the Incapsula team to keep this a place that's great to work at

    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.

    I worked at Imperva full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Normal tech benefits, some good staff still left after the mass exodus of late 2015 and early 2016, newly renovated building, and solid security product.

    Cons

    After 2015 when the company was heading in the perfect direction in every aspect to grow to where the CEO predicted with a positive attitude. All the A players (excellent management, top performers, and support staff) left the company due to office politics and a sudden change in a few executive board member coming/leaving. 2015 seemed like the C and D even F players (Sales/Sales Engineers Management Specifically) took over the "Zoo" and stripped the soul of the company (employee's working there 5-15 years left or were forced to leave). Performance doesn't matter, management's attitude is not good, rumors of being sold (look in the news for Imperva), allowing poor performers to stay, and no allegiances to employee's. All the company fun events that gave you energy to work there stopped immediately.

    Advice to Management

    I don't know where to start, but just because you are good at being an individual contributor does not mean you'll be a good leader.

    Pros

    Lot of stuff can be learnt here, flexible work environment if you are hard working and have a rapport with the boss, flexible holiday system if you are communicative with your boss.

    Cons

    Politics, red tape, favoritism, cross team opaqueness, lack of team work, sales team can be totally unreasonable and condescending to support without backing from the support management so you will be on your own there.

    Advice to Management

    Act and not just listen to the pain points of the support team in order for them to do their work and be more effective.

    Pros

    Fast paced environment, no boring days. Product is in Gartner's "Magic Quadrant" which provides for a solid and respected technology base. A lot of freedom to grow, make a difference and add value at all levels.

    Cons

    As expected, some of the tools & systems will need to be updated to align with growth.

    Advice to Management

    Keep communicating and remain nimble as our market is dynamic.

    Pros

    Excellent collaboration across teams. Very strong product line and position in the industry. Proactive management. Huge improvements/expansion in services and support.

    Cons

    Has been expanding perhaps too quickly. As you can see from the other reviews there seem to be issues with Sales.

    Advice to Management

    Keep focus on long term, steady growth and stabilizing sales and the product line.
