    Pros

    Opportunities like this are rare. Great pay, great benefits and an amazing future. Upper management has vision and the employees share in the rewards. The question ins't will Pure succeed, the question is only how brilliantly.

    I have been working at Pure Storage full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    + smart people (conversations flow easily)
     + great product, selling quickly
     + high investment (time, money) in the tooling needed to make engineering run smoothly (automated testing, modern compilers, git, etc.)
     + good amount of autonomy - management has a light hand - without chaos
         + few meetings: 1 stand-up per day, 1 team meeting / 2weeks, all hands every week
     + management is open with employees about company direction / status - speaks plainly (e.g. review board deck every month)

    Cons

    - Gain weight because of all the free food
