    I have been working at Pure Storage full-time

    Pros

    Really good technology – leading and extending that lead while others catching up. Have had a fantastic time with some great people. The SEs are mostly pretty decent so some great support.

    Cons

    Now the long bit. I cant see myself at pure for more than this year. Good days are over. It’s no longer the real fun start-up it felt like when I first got here, its now a machine and the Netapp/EMC/big company culture is starting to show now the heat is on. The whip is out. Lots of backstabbing and vendettas – surprising for such a small company. If you expect decent packages, stock options, low targets and rich...

    Advice to Management

    Rebuild confidence company wide. Senior management seem detached from the troops on the ground and don’t seem to understand the impact of things such as limiting comp plans days before end of year. Not a good start for the new CEO. Prove to your staff you are not the second coming of EMC where every disgruntled AE has now decided to show up.

    I worked at Pure Storage full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Loved working there for the first 1 year! People were being trained and rewarded for their efforts! Culture was fun and it felt like the best workplace ever...until becoming public.

    Cons

    Right after becoming a public company the management in certain regions was completely changed. Pure started hiring people from the big players and they came over together with their management style. They didn’t care about the current culture. A lot of people were let go because of: Not being the right fit A corp decision Role not needed Right after these people were let go, their job was outsourced for the next 6...

    Pros

    Love the team that I have the privilege to work with on a daily basis - We are not a team because we work together, we are a team because we respect, trust, and care for each other, that's what makes our team special.

    Cons

    People with Ego's, Insecurity, and a lack of their own self awareness will fail!

    Advice to Management

    Preserve the creativity and culture!

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

    Pros

    HIgh pay for what the job is. Good benefits - free lunches, travel etc. Easy to coast along if that's what you're looking for.

    Cons

    Poor management, communication, training, career progression. Forever talking about having a fantastic culture when in reality politics and office backstabbing seem to be the only way to get ahead. Theft of sales and therefore commission went unpunished. Poor performance never addressed, just allowed to continue in the hope that it'll improve through some magic coincidence.
