    Amazing culture, decent benefits, and a good company trajectory.

    Cons

    Sometimes you have to explain what you work on to your relatives by referencing "the box" from Silicon Valley.

    Pros

    -Lots of perks! Health insurance, matching 401k, free lunch 3x a week, unlimited PTO -Potentially great manager who cares about your development and growth in the company -Impressive technologies and a company that is genuinely customer-centric( NPS in the high 80's)

    Cons

    -As an SDR, if you're not automatically one of the ISR or District manager's favorites, it can be hard to get the recognition you deserve. -The ISR organization needs to take a look at itself and see if they're giving their promotions on merit or who is their "favorite". Have a tangible way to measure success and give recognition to SDR's who genuinely work hard. The bias in this company is palpable at times. -The California...

    Pros

    Fantastic Technology, crazy happy customers.

    Cons

    Preach culture, but will let it slide vs. dealing with the issue at hand. Talk about accountability, but when it matters leadership will default to ignoring the blatant violation at the expense of avoiding conflict.

    Advice to Management

    Expect more, challenge people to be better, and leave up to the values.

    Pros

    Free lunches and snacks. Massage chairs and arcades at the mountain view office. Open culture for learning and innovation.

    Cons

    None so far. Occasional orange color overdose ;)

    Advice to Management

    More commuter benefits please - Caltrain passes for instance.

    - Love the field teams -Love the products -Great coworkers

    Cons

    - INSIDE Sales MANAGEMENT! You need to be careful. I've never been to a place where management is far more immature than the workers. This inside sales management team is a huge roadblock to career promotion and creates high stress - low return situation for the employees. You will battle for time off with an "unlimited PTO" policy. You will deal with false rumors being spread by your immediate managers (things...

    Advice to Management

    Please focus on what drives real value to the company and your employees. Asking the field teams what they want their SDR's doing instead of creating tasks that don't bring value to anyone and worse, take away from the goals of Pure. Be mentors, not dictators. being an SDR is a demanding and job, motivate your employees instead of only criticizing. them over valueless activities. Advice to UPPER management: Take...

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

    Pros

    There's lots of snack and drink choices in every building. Direct coworkers are great. Sales floor has a good mix of leadership and early professionals, so there are good opportunities to network and ask questions. If you find the right people in the company to be your mentors, you will at least find some peace in the chaos.

    Cons

    Inside Sales management has created a culture of fear and high stress, without providing any real value to the organization or those they manage. They do nothing to drive business for Pure, they simply act as watchdogs. The company has gone on a competitive hiring spree, pulling from other large orgs, and is turning Pure into a carbon copy of every other gray, sad workplace out there. It has become a butt in chair kind...

    Advice to Management

    As the company continues to grow, leadership is has to make a choice: Keep pursuing growth at any cost, hire with a quantity over quality mentality, and watch your sales floor diminish over time- and expect to lose your quality employees to competitors. Or, check in with your sales teams AT EVERY LEVEL and ask them how they think things are going, if they feel like they are getting the help they need, if they feel like...
