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

    Pros

    Great experience building job skills, senior management and guidance was excellent, and the job was fast pace and interesting to keep your attention. It was a great introductory company into the security space. I felt like I knew most of the company and mostly everyone's heart was in the right place.

    Cons

    Some of the perks weren't all that ... perky: Eat Club meals were meh but it's free food, kitchen was somewhat stocked with limited junkfood snacks and drinks, and there weren't a lot of other benefits. Unlimited PTO was nice but wasn't really used as much as it could've been due to work/life balance issues.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on building on your employee's talents and maintaining who you already have. Do not waste talent on menial tasks.

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

    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

    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.

    I worked at Imperva full-time

    Pros

    Imperva was very open to allowing individuals to take on projects and responsibility without bureaucracy. This served the company well.

    Cons

    There were too many chiefs getting hired towards the end. It was becoming a case of the haves and the have nots within management.

    Pros

    - Top-notch products (Gartner WAF leader, amongst others)
    - Dedicated workforce at all levels
    - Decent work-life balance
    - Teams have a passion for the company they work for!

    Cons

    - Some groups do tend to have a little bit of a political mentality... but which company doesn't have that! Definitely less than at other companies I've worked for.
