    I worked at Imperva

    Pros

    Great technology, . Incapsula cloud service is second to none. Data and WAF are market leading. Great people, tenured sales team are very strong and great presales

    Cons

    No marketing. Focus is all about the revenue numbers and nothing else. Feast and famine approach to allocation of resources. Field teams are world class struggling for resources and get limited support from central functions that seem to be ballooning in size.

    Advice to Management

    Set out a vision for the whole company that makes it clear what the organization wants to be both as perceived by the market and the people who work there. Change the focus to helping the field teams to be successful rather than blaming them for the weaknesses of the central teams.

    I worked at Imperva full-time

    Pros

    Imperva used to be a good company before new management

    Cons

    After the aquisition, Imperva doesn't seem like before. Many good people left the company and it looks like leaders and manager didn't care to retain them. In regards the support team, everything changed after the new director of support took over and a new manager came;they change the culture. Most of the support engineers for Imperva for both products left the company this years in HQ because of the changes.... Manager looks like he micromanage people . Because most of us left, you see many support engineer positions open in the career page even though it is a small team. There was no career growth in my team also.

    Advice to Management

    Seems that the "culture" all the leaders embrace and talk about is just words;at least for the customer support team in HQ.
