    I have been working at Pure Storage full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Pure Storage creates actual things in the world. It's not some social media startup trying to sell advertising to 18-34 year olds. It's the physical storage which powers the cloud, and there's a lot of interesting technical problems to solve. I've worked at many companies in tech and other industries, and I think this is one of the best in terms of people. The environment is flexible, non-hierarchical and biased to action.

    Cons

    Fast rate of growth has led to new hires needing to be trained and incorporated into the culture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep it up, reward your top performers, keep open the line of communication, and a flat corporate structure.

    I have been working at Pure Storage full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    The interview definitely does a good job of filtering out non-technical candidates. The interviewers both clearly had an excellent command of the storage industry as a whole and what separates Pure Storage from the rest of the sector.

    Cons

    I have no complaints about the interviews themselves, but the time it took to get through the various phases of interview and onboarding process. Timelines, proactive communication and next steps were often lacking.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I will reserve the urge to dispense advice for the simple fact I know Pure Storage is making adjustments to their process.

    Pros

    Great technology with great engineers. Company started with good intentions but have hired too many emc employees

    Cons

    Strict management that accepts no losses. No matter if competition undercuts your price by half. Very arrogant company. Not focused on employees or quality of life.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you don't want to become emc with the attitude that comes with it and the arrogance, The bad treatment of customers, then why are you hiring only emc arrogant aholes.

    I have been working at Pure Storage full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Working at Pure has been the best job of my career. It's hard to put my finger on exactly why but I think it boils down to how culturally committed we are at every level to creating a phenomenal customer experience. When we get to see our customers, partners and product succeed, it just makes me feel great about working every day.

    Cons

    What makes it great also makes it challenging. You have to know you're building something great to be willing to work as hard as we do. Though we're growing fast, it's almost like we can't grow fast enough to keep up with all there is to do. Not sure if I can really call it a con--but you have to be ready to work hard and creatively in a meritocracy of amazing talent who all are 1000% committed.

    I have been working at Pure Storage full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I joined fairly early on and I've had many opportunities to be challenged and grow in the last few years. I'm excited to come to work each day knowing that we're building a product that's changing people's lives for the better.

    Cons

    The company has gotten big enough that I no longer have an opportunity to meet all the new people.

    Pros

    good place to work great benefits as they are fully paid for all employees. vacation is cool. good team work and a lab

    Cons

    their interview decisions are poor they have very bright people come in the door and they 'let them leave. the management should be the ones selecting the employees not the employees. the employees should not be making management decisions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    step in and take control of the interview process, they are letting talent leave because the employee that does the interview is scared that they know more then they do so they don't recommend the hire.
