    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

    Imperva has endless possibilities to make a great living for high achievers in sales. In the data security markets Imperva serves it is absolutely the best technology. You will always be challenged because everything we do isn't easy and most customers still need to be educated on the value proposition.

    Cons

    You can't come in to this business thinking 'it's easy to sell security because it's hot with all the current data breaches'. This is a very competitive market with lots of organizations saying similar things and there isn't one silver bullet.

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

    Pros

    Decent products and at least some nice people remain.

    Cons

    Little respect for employees and performance. Recent large layoffs had no substance behind them with many let go simply because of re-org recommendations from consultants brought in by the new CEO. Many talented leaders and employees let go with every excuse to walk them out the door.

    Advice to Management

    Treat people with respect and look at yourselves and your actions before standing up and telling people everything is roses. Don't hide behind others when you let go of so much talent!

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

    Pros

    Good pay scale, unlimited PTO is a nice perk. There are some focused, dedicated people that work here, it is too bad that some of the ones that do nothing still remain. Trying hard to improve on culture.

    Cons

    Due to two rounds of layoffs and an exodus of good people in between, you will be doing the job of three people. Morale is low, management is all new, and fear abounds.

    Advice to Management

    Look at output, not words. Some of your management team members breathe air, suck up, and do nothing more.

    Pros

    Great technology. Company is changing to better align itself with the market.

    Cons

    Unknown future, small product line.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the field. Fix the obvious issues immediately. You don't need consultants to do the obvious.

    Verdict is still out on CEO change. A lot of transformation due to poor leadership of previous CEO.

    Old product is stable

    Cons

    CRO is awful and out of touch with reality. Never carried a bag and should be relegated to a small sales ops role

    Advice to Management

    Too late, we’re leaving,

    Pros

    The Database solution is pretty good

    Cons

    This is a company run by people that have no concern whatsoever for their employees. It's all about upper management making their cash. Terrible, cliquish environment, full of ridiculous politics and egos.

    Advice to Management

    Sell the company.
