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

    Pros

    Good salary, good product and good globale vision and strategy

    Cons

    No opportunity if you don't come from Veritas or a friend of them, nothing changed since I left.
    France management is really bad, micro management "where are you" is the main question.
    The sales team is lazy and has no experience with storage, too much "propinquity" (consanguinité). They aren't able to understand the customer business, no one is able to talk about a business case that's why they need the channel to do it. Unfortunatly, even if they are 2 or 3 channel managers, they also have a lack there because of bad behaviours from the sales team.

    Advice to Management

    Change your local team has you did before in France. Because you have a good product, low targets and a huge marketing France do the numbers. But with the appropriate team you can do so much more. You won't be able to do your numbers for FY18 with the existing team, except if the average target is still so low...

    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.

    Pros

    Great products. Rapid growth means you learn allot in a short time.

    Cons

    Management talks allot but does little. Support for those in the field is lacking. The small company culture is giving way to the politics and disfunction's found at larger companies. "Promised" earnings were 100% unattainable.
