    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.

    Pros

    Everyone at every level of the company is better than what I've experienced in previous companies : execs, engineering, support, marketing, sales, operations, and even legal! The product is awesome and customers love it

    Cons

    This is a very high growth company, as a result your job can change every 6 month so if you're looking for stability this is not the right place! Also there's way too many emails...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep it up!

    Pure Storage Interview Experience

    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

    Love this company. Seeing the company grow and being part of that growth has been amazing.
    The first thing that struck me when I joined was that for a startup, the on-boarding was well thought out. I was up to speed very quickly. The company culture is very strong: We are building a better storage company and everyone has that same goal so collaboration is pervasive. I have yet to come across internal conflict or much internal politics which is so destructive in other companies.
    I love the fact that absolutely everyone (engineering, support, presales, sales, execs) is very capable and strives for excellence at what they do. Be warned that those that aren't are quickly found out and do not last long.
    Rewards are very good and as the company grows, I can see there being many opportunities.

    Cons

    The only one perhaps is that you have to roll up your sleeves and do things that aren't your role. But that's what's needed at a startup/emerging company. If hard work and a fast-pace do not bring out the best in you then this is not for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing.

    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.
