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

    Pros

    The culture at Pure is leagues more compelling and inclusive than any company I've worked for in the past. I truly feel like I'm a part of something big and important. I feel connected to the impact our company makes on our customers, and proud to be a part of such a disruptive and innovative team. Pure has grown in numbers vastly in the last several years, and the company has prioritized keeping the culture intact. I like seeing that commitment from the top down. That creates a feeling of security; as we continue to grow, I feel that I still have a place in the company and the reasons why I joined (do work that makes an impact, employ a bias for action without bureaucracy, collaborate with super intelligent people so I continue to learn, and to grow my career) became reasons why I stay.

    Cons

    Rapid growth has it's growing pains. Nothing unusual from my experience.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to stay committed to listening to employees and providing them room to grow.

    I have been working at Pure Storage (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great career track upward mobility
    Transparent culture, everyone is easy to work with and talk to
    Best health care benefits in the industry
    Above average compensation

    Cons

    Definitely feels more like a "big company" than it did a few years back.

    Advice to Management

    New hire training could use some improvement. Our product is awesome, but the steep learning curve isn't.

    I worked at Pure Storage full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great colleagues, great core leadership and culture but fading (see cons)
    Healthcare coverage is phenomenal
    The tech simply works so its great to bring that confidence to a new customer.

    Cons

    Original culture is rapidly fading away and its turning into EMC 2.0. This is being ensured by so many new hires at all levels (especially management) coming directly from EMC.
    Rapid growth of company has made communication upward and lateral more difficult than it used to or needs to be.

    Advice to Management

    Follow the .NEXT intentions more closely because middle management is clearly not on board with this if you look at all the hires in the last half year.

    Pros

    Customers love the product. Management wants you to succeed. Fun, bright culture. Great benefits, great salary, great perks.

    Growing pains going from startup to larger company. Some management turnover in inside sales. Really not much to complain about here.

    Advice to Management

    Just continue to invest in your employees' growth.

    Too much cross team communication needed, lower down time of development, people are all settled down

    Great benefits, friendly atmosphere, pretty good support structure for onboarding

    Cons

    If you are not working on the important core features your work is most likely grindy and boring (I guess like other jobs?)

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing

    Pros

    The company really cares about its employees and customers. Also, it's quite agile for a company of its size. It's a fun work environment, and work-life balance is pretty good.

    Cons

    It's a growing company, so there are growing pains. Also, during crunch times, it can still feel a bit like a startup and require some long days and big efforts.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the culture awesome :)

    Pros

    Great place to work with great people. Fun work environment, everyone has plenty of trust and respect for one another, and management is very aware of those who work above and beyond and make sure they are recognized for their extra effort.

    Cons

    Some of the standard stuff of a growing company, but that isn't a con to everyone (myself included). I like being there while the company and products grow and having a chance to influence their growth and direction.
