Not if you value being treated like a human being
Someone (Current Employee) –  SomeplaceApril 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.
Pros
Great product; amazing hardware and the software is even better
Cons
Sr Management hates employees unless employees kiss Sr. Management's butt.

Growing Pains: 3 Reorgs in a year, chaos and ineffective leadership
Marketing (Former Employee) –  Mountain View, CAFebruary 15, 2018
The last review posted says it all:

growing pains, right hand does not know what the left is doing, rudder less ship right now. There is no leadership currently in the company, seems like there is no focus
Pros
Free Lunch
Cons
No Leadership, Start up mentality with everyone doing a land grab to own everything

Very fun place to work; great opportunity
Enterprise Account Executive (Current Employee) –  FloridaDecember 5, 2017
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.
Pros
Great Technology
Cons
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, CANovember 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.
Pros
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
Cons
Career advancement opportunities, too much upper level management, need more employees that carry out the work

Great is your at HQ, Ok when your remote
Global Strategic Lead, SAP (Former Employee) –  Mountain View, CANovember 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.

Scale strategy gone completely wrong...
SDR (Former Employee) –  Mountain View, CAJune 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.
Pros
Unlimited PTO, Employee Benefits, Compensation
Cons
Management, Leadership, No Career Development, Recruiting, Ethics & Morality, etc.

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.
Pros
Plenty: Insurance is almost free, lots of great thinking/people, lunchroom, etc.
Cons
Leadership can be a little tough but you have to bring your A-game

Great people, uninspiring work
Member of Technical Staff (Former Employee) –  Bellevue, WASeptember 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.
Pros
Free Lunch MWF, Great insurance, Great people
Cons
Not enough people, Boring work

Great company overall
Technical Support Engineer (Former Employee) –  Lehi, UTMay 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.
Pros
Excellent pay and benefits, free lunches, fully funded healthcare, best PTO policy out there.
Cons
Management is not always consistent, people are sometimes let go without warning. Recently went public.
