    I have been working at Pure Storage full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Culture - this company has an outstanding culture. The company understands that the most important asset they have are the people and they treat them with great respect. I've been with the company a year and have no regrets. Compensation/Benefits - the company compensation is very competitive. However, on top of compensation, they offer: free meals, video game room, massage chairs, flexible hours, unlimited vacation,...

    Cons

    I really have no negative things to say about the company. It is a fast-paced technology company, so if you aren't looking to work hard, this probably isn't the place for you. However, if you are looking for a high-energy environment, you will likely have a great time.

    Advice to Management

    Keep investing the people. Keep the positive culture and don't let politics get in the way of company success.

    Pros

    Best data storage products in the industry. Talented people to work with and new managers bringing in positive energy to the team. Lots of snacks and eat club 3 days a week. Pure Good foundation is helping communities around the world and gives people a chance to help, including trips to Africa and other countries. Lots of promotion options for successful reps.

    Cons

    Some people don't work very hard and seem to complain a lot. the training manager left and is impacting the frequency of ongoing training.

    Advice to Management

    think about setting goals based on the territory, not giving the same goal to everyone.

    I have been working at Pure Storage full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    There's lots of snack and drink choices in every building. Direct coworkers are great. Sales floor has a good mix of leadership and early professionals, so there are good opportunities to network and ask questions. If you find the right people in the company to be your mentors, you will at least find some peace in the chaos.

    Cons

    Inside Sales management has created a culture of fear and high stress, without providing any real value to the organization or those they manage. They do nothing to drive business for Pure, they simply act as watchdogs. The company has gone on a competitive hiring spree, pulling from other large orgs, and is turning Pure into a carbon copy of every other gray, sad workplace out there. It has become a butt in chair kind...

    Advice to Management

    As the company continues to grow, leadership is has to make a choice: Keep pursuing growth at any cost, hire with a quantity over quality mentality, and watch your sales floor diminish over time- and expect to lose your quality employees to competitors. Or, check in with your sales teams AT EVERY LEVEL and ask them how they think things are going, if they feel like they are getting the help they need, if they feel like...

    Pros

    - Love the field teams -Love the products -Great coworkers

    Cons

    - INSIDE Sales MANAGEMENT! You need to be careful. I've never been to a place where management is far more immature than the workers. This inside sales management team is a huge roadblock to career promotion and creates high stress - low return situation for the employees. You will battle for time off with an "unlimited PTO" policy. You will deal with false rumors being spread by your immediate managers (things...

    Advice to Management

    Please focus on what drives real value to the company and your employees. Asking the field teams what they want their SDR's doing instead of creating tasks that don't bring value to anyone and worse, take away from the goals of Pure. Be mentors, not dictators. being an SDR is a demanding and job, motivate your employees instead of only criticizing. them over valueless activities. Advice to UPPER management: Take...

    I have been working at Pure Storage full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    The company has grown a lot since I started here 4 plus years ago. I still say the same thing now as I did a year after starting here, "I still like going to work everyday." I mean, work is work, but the environment created at Pure makes it so that even the tough days are fun. Arcade, massage chairs, comfortable break areas, a nap room, and unlimited snacks, drinks and food and overall, great people. The unlimited...

    Cons

    There are still some growing pains. As the company gets bigger, decisions are made that seem to hinder some of the perks of working at Pure. Ie, what was once fully covered health care, is now partial at-cost for the employees. Still better than any company I have worked for, but still cause some anxiety for the near future of the changes to come.

    Advice to Management

    I wouldn't say that there is micro-managing at a large scale here (a reason I still love working here). But, there are egos that are apparent on some management teams that are annoying to deal with. This just seems to happen in most companies I have worked for and isn't much different here. The egos mainly get in the way of seemingly simple solutions to basic problems. Only advise to management is to stay humble...
