    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

    Helpful management that is willing to mentor and grow hard-working professionals who've made career shifts. Positive work environment and accountable management. Solutions and product that are worth standing behind. I appreciate the diversity of backgrounds that my coworkers have come from. It makes for a far more interesting, energetic team to contribute towards.

    Cons

    Market uncertainty has made for some challenging quarters, but ultimately the workforce at Imperva makes it worth it. The commute is exhausting coming from the East Bay.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to value those who value the company and exhibit loyalty. Maybe allow more telecommunicating for some in roles where appropriate.

    We are thrilled you are enjoying your Team, Management and your role. Traffic patterns are brutal, please discuss with your manager options that may help alleviate some of your commute time.

    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

    The technology is superior and benefits the greater good. You work hard, stay on task, and it does get recognized, which in my career has been hard to come by. Management really takes an effort to lead, motivate, keep engaged, and make sure you have all of the tools needed to succeed. It provides high value when I'm lead and not micro managed.

    Cons

    Imperva has been in hyper growth mode within the last year, which always involves growing pains. Although, this does seem to be unavoidable when you have several product lines that are highly needed in numerous industry sectors.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing! Stay communicated and proactive in guiding your team to success. Keep up the morale and collaboration and maintain the noticed effort of your top employees.

    Pros

    Management is great. Fun place to work and good company to work for. People say that you pick the boss you want to work for and not just the job, and these are definitely people you would want to work for. There is always something to learn on the job and everyone is willing to learn as well as teach - it makes the job have value.

    Cons

    I have been year for just over a year, and the company is growing and evolving. The growing pains of a growing company puts on a bit of a work load, but I don't know that I really see that as a "CON"

    Advice to Management

    I think management is doing an awesome job! This has been the best job I've had in a long time. There are approachable, are willing to listen, and understanding. They definitely give importance to their employees.

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

    Keep communicating and remain nimble as our market is dynamic.
