    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.

    Pros

    - Great, dedicated talent within the company
    - Transparency throughout the company
    - Overall strategic vision is spot on
    - Solid benefits and pay

    While we’ve gone through a ton of change lately, everyone feels we are heading in the right direction and that this was long overdue.

    Cons

    - Not everyone is handling the amount of change well
    - Fast pace and high stress (I see this more as a challenge than true con)

    Advice to Management

    Continue focusing on employees first. There are lots of talented, hard working, dedicated employees here. With the fast pace and recent changes, we can all use some extra attention. Stay the course!

    Pros

    I've been with Imperva for more than 4 years, and I really like the company, what we do, and the people I work with.

    Cons

    A lot of changes recently in organization and messaging - I think this has made a lot of people nervous/uncertain where they stand.

    Advice to Management

    Try to stabilize a bit - even good change can be done too fast.

    Pros

    Free snacks that basically are free.

    Cons

    Redwood Shores is in a death spiral. All of us talk about how we can exit the company as efficiently as possible. The new CEO is more of a COO. He refuses to engage with customers and is trying to create a culture that suits his personality with is introverted at best. We don't think he realizes that we actually have to sell things to people and not just dress up in the same tshirt and take selfies.

    Advice to Management

    Please find a new CEO. He does not have the acumen or experience to run a company. It is not too late to right the ship as long as we have the right leadership.

    I worked at Imperva full-time

    Pros

    Great snacks, workout classes and events.

    Cons

    Unfriendly people, management, employees, new employees. People are talked down to. Zero respect for peers. People are hired with manager titles based on who they know, not what they know. Management does not support you or care about your growth, they only care about themselves. When needed, employees were allowed to work from home. Was told company is work life balance. That’s not the case anymore for hourly employees. Expect more people to leave.

    Advice to Management

    Stop taking things we care about swat, and focus on results. Support your team. Snacks are great but is not going to change the unhappy, unfriendly people due to lack of management. This is not a sweat shop. Treat your employees with respect. Be transparent and not so secretive about everything. Read other reviews where they have 5 stars and work on being more like them if you want people to stay.
