Overall great job where I gained a lot of experience
Sales Intern (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – June 16, 2018
Job included prospecting, emailing, and calling out into accounts in attempt to secure meetings with company salesmen to sell our product. The culture was very friendly and helpful. I learned all the ins and outs of being and inside sales man
Someone (Current Employee) – Someplace – April 17, 2018
This company lets people go on a whim.
They say they value their employees, yet they have to bribe employees to give favorable reviews during employee satisfaction surveys.
There are solid performer who have gone their entire tenure without raises.
All of the people whose backs Pure Storage Support was built upon, have left the company, as well as much of its creative and innovative talents. (The Titanic has been set adrift, and we all know what comes next.)
The VP thinks everything Engineers and Tech Support Management does could be done by monkeys - and "monkeys" is a direct quote.
The Director of Support is a tyrant who could not give a compliment or a since thanks if is literal life depended on it.
Great product; amazing hardware and the software is even better
Sr Management hates employees unless employees kiss Sr. Management's butt.
Early days at Pure were special and the most rewarding. As the company has grows it becomes very difficult to keep the early vibe and the culture. New team leaders don't alway align with core values and can be disruptive. Do your homework to understand the reporting structure to ensure compatibility with your RSM. Goals are subjective and not always consistent. Mistakes have been made in effort to give out goals with little effort to make right. Overall a great company with excellent technology just make sure you know what you are getting into before you jump in.
Many new mid level managers with legacy mindsets/leadership styles
Great culture and people, needs work on efforts to integrate different organizations within the company to work together more efficiently
Marketing (Current Employee) – Mountain View, CA – November 14, 2017
Awesome people- never have I worked at a company where I loved every single person I'd have to work with on a daily basis. Everyone here just gets how Pure Storage works and what needs to be done to get to our goal. Great culture- emphasis on work/life balance, family and health comes first, and frequent happy hours with coworkers to let loose after work or finishing a big project. Company needs to work on 401(k) matching and job advancement opportunities. HR needs to hire less executive/director positions and more people that actually get work done.
Great health/vision/dental benefits, free lunches Mon/Wed/Fri, free dinners Mon-Thurs, fully stocked micro-kitchens on every floor of every building, work/life balance, unlimited PTO/sick days/WFH days
Career advancement opportunities, too much upper level management, need more employees that carry out the work
Global Strategic Lead, SAP (Former Employee) – Mountain View, CA – November 7, 2017
It's a great company with great products and a good vision. The culture is open and you can engage with management at every level. The only negative for me was in my group you needed to be onsite to see advancement or recognition and I am based remote. This is just a growing pain of a young company going global and it should change over time.
SDR (Former Employee) – Mountain View, CA – June 21, 2017
I loved working for Pure Storage before all the growth and expansion took place. It was an atmosphere where everyone believed in the vision and leadership in place, and there was a real organic, genuine sense of accountability from the top-down. However, post-IPO brought about significant challenges that Pure just couldn't and cannot overcome. Management is a huge, HUGE weakness of this company that is short-sighted in its decision making and ultimately is a carousel of turnover. There is so much emphasis on culture, but the office environment has become simply all about hypocrisy nowadays. They try to offset all these short-comings by providing a wide array of employee benefits, but ultimately, people only care about their careers and who is leading them towards a brighter future, and Pure has lost sight of that.
Unlimited PTO, Employee Benefits, Compensation
Management, Leadership, No Career Development, Recruiting, Ethics & Morality, etc.
Manager, GSI Practice (Former Employee) – Seattle, WA – May 1, 2017
Overall exactly how you want to be treated and how you want to treat customers. Great people, culture, benefits. Have to bring your A-game. Ultimately they will be successful and people are very happy to work there.
Plenty: Insurance is almost free, lots of great thinking/people, lunchroom, etc.
Leadership can be a little tough but you have to bring your A-game
Member of Technical Staff (Former Employee) – Bellevue, WA – September 19, 2016
The people here are absolutely wonderful, and I've learned a lot, but the work isn't very interesting, and there is a deficit of people working on each project, so there is a lot of pressure to deliver that can lead to people not utilizing the company's "unlimited" vacation.
Technical Support Engineer (Former Employee) – Lehi, UT – May 11, 2016
Pure Storage has a great culture and is an enjoyable place to work. They really believe in "work hard, play hard". There is plenty of fun to be had, but there is an expectation that you will work even harder than you played.
Long hours are the norm. If you like a challenge, you will enjoy working at Pure Storage.
Excellent pay and benefits, free lunches, fully funded healthcare, best PTO policy out there.
Management is not always consistent, people are sometimes let go without warning. Recently went public.
IT Operations Intern (Former Employee) – Mountain View, CA – October 1, 2015
I love this company so much. It was my first experience in the corporate setting and it was the best company I could have worked for with an amazing, supportive team and the best company culture I think I will ever experience (hopefully not)..
