Challenging, but don't expect support
Data Center Operations Analyst (Former Employee) –  Santa Clara, CA18 July 2019
Alot to learn, exciting projects, but very siloed. Management will pay lipservice to your problems while simultaneously remaining functionally indifferent. Big talk on collaborative/supportive/team culture, except when you actually need it to manifest. Learn on your own, collaborate outside your "team" and move on after leveling up.

Amazing benefits - Changing a lot from original Orange
Technical Support Manager (Former Employee) –  Draper, UT19 May 2019
Environment is a bit toxic and egotistic - management can’t seem to agree - managers not on the same vision across geo’s and efforts go on uncoordinated. Overall, great place to work with lots of cool people and sponsored company events - by far the best place to work ;) unfortunately, nothing else compares.
Pros
Amazing benefits and perks - amazing product and culture
Cons
Toxic Management // lacks leadership

The immediate team was amazing. The overall organization was disorganized. While I enjoyed working there overall I would hesitate to recommend that others work there in the same role.

Pros
Well-stocked break room, lunch/dinner provided MWF, company retreat to Moab, "Unlimited" PTO.

Advancement opportunities, growing pains, open work environment, limited work from home policy

A bunch of serious eggheads with nerf guns.
Technical Services Engineer II | Pure FlashArray (Current Employee) –  Lehi, UT19 December 2018
Pure Storage hires quality people with both proven skills and good attitudes. We work hard (9-10 hours a day) but play hard (onsite arcade, Nerf guns strown about, outings to Moab, team activities, etc...). The daily demand is real, but the people and atmosphere it comes with makes it a pleasant struggle.
Pros
catering - Cell phone allowance - Trips - bright and quality colleagues
Cons
Demanding case flow. knowledge transfer (training) needs improvement.

Not if you value being treated like a human being
Someone (Current Employee) –  Someplace17 April 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.

Very fun place to work; great opportunity
Enterprise Account Executive (Current Employee) –  Florida5 December 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, CA14 November 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, CA7 November 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, CA21 June 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.

Great culture/environment
Manager, GSI Practice (Former Employee) –  Seattle, WA1 May 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.
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
