    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.

    Executive level communication and transparency

    Pros

    Salary, Benefits, Perks, Brilliant Support Engineers, Fantastic Products

    Cons

    The Leadership team is predominantly the same folks who made the Riverbed, EMC, and Oracle corporate culture what they are today, versus the employee-centric companies they used to be.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees; they know a whole lot more than you are giving them credit for knowing.
