Pros

Company is firing on all cylinders: building a great product with disruptive technology that customers love in a huge market, executing incredibly well in operations, marketing, and sales, and reaping the rewards for all of that: truly exceptional growth that few companies in history can match.

Cons

Company is too big to really be a startup any more; not sure it would be as good to join now, given that the inner circle/clique of early employees is already pretty well set.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Success is not fore-ordained. We can still screw this up. Turn up the paranoia and turn down the arrogance a bit.

    Pros

    Outstanding leadership
    A great start to a phenomenal culture
    An opportunity to build a phenomenal brand for Pure and yourself. . .all while building personal wealth

    Cons

    It's moving so fast we aren't taking time to "smell the roses"
    We are growing so fast we may be prone to making some mistakes.
    There may be too many former EMC employees joining; however, if they are not of the classic mold, we should be fine.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing by hiring top talent, building a strong culture, and providing transparent, candid communication.
