    Pros

    The new CRO has created a long overdue sales culture! Winning, recognition and fun are at the center of it. The return of sales spiffs and excitement have revitalized the org. His energy is contagious!

    Cons

    The last 4 years were bad in sales at imperva . It will take a while to get rid of that culture. Give more credit to the SE’s!

    Pros

    Product is the best in the industry! The C-level team now is putting Imperva back on the right track (albeit not as fast as we hoped it could be). Unlike the sales WW leader who moved back to EMEA, the new CRO knows how a great sales team ought to be run. He is bringing the company back to where it used to be. We finally have a global sales management leadership team who has what it takes to do the job. We are also really grateful to Gigamon in a way for saving our EMEA team from falling into another mess!

    Cons

    Things went down hill extremely fast with the previous management. Echoing the previous Glassdoor review of the prior sales WW leader who moved back to EMEA. His lackluster sales experience resulted in many good people leaving. This year alone, a lot of time was spent clearing up the mess he and the previous CEO created.

    I worked at Imperva full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Some of the old timers still care.

    Cons

    Application is a patchwork of hotfixes, with no clear strategy. Knowingly sold things that can't be provided and threw the lowest rung of employees under the bus when the customer complains.

    Pros

    The new CEO and CCO bring refreshing changes to the company! The CCO is taking care of the entire Customer Success department needs and improving it. (Things that needed to be done a long time ago) The product is in a good level, there are good people in the company which makes the worldwide collaboration easy. The work itself is challanging and there are always new things to learn and improve, it never gets boring.

    Cons

    Waiting for stability in terms of management and key position changes since the acquisition
