    I worked at Pure Storage full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great kitchen with fantastic food and drink options.
    Great technology and potential as a company.
    Proven management and solid employees.
    Location is nice, office is new and appealing.

    Cons

    Work demands are a bit tough. They expect 60-80 hours per week.
    Vacation policy isn't terribly clear nor particularly fair if you don't take time off.
    Interview is quite difficult.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A bit more transparency between management and employees. Management doesn't make enough effort to bond with employees and make them feel as important as they should.
