I can't believe I just found this. So the interview I had yesterday with Pure is apparently worthless! Sickening. You go into an interview after researching the company & you hear nothing but "flowers & sunshine". And then I see this. Ugh! I'll definitely look at The Layoff before I interview anywhere again. Just looking at Google news doesn't tell you everything!

Some of the cuts even started towards end of last year which probably was not included in the 4%. Desperate attempt to appease shareholders and try to become profitable as stated as a primary goal in their Q3 earnings statement.

The commenter who talked about positive nurturing culture - that changed some in the last few months. Charlie even said there were changes coming and staff reduction was a possibility. The new sales Delivery VP who came from NetApp is known for cutting staff to the bare bone.

And another person I know got cut today.

I was another. part of Enterprise Sales. Solutions are not ready for Enterpise space. Not many making their #'s and money. Political BS. Thye kept a sales guy in NY region who hasn't sold a thing in 3 years. Joke #seeya!

Too bad but probably necessary. Change s—s and is always hard but there is a ton of opportunity out there in tech so everyone will be fine. In the end Pure has relentlessly protected a positive nurturing culture which is not easy to do. John "Coz" is a special person w Even though I am no longer with the company I still root for Pure and would recommend to a colleague or a friend to take a role at Pure based on the culture. A job is a job and Pure is a good spot. my .02

21 that I can see, I was one. No message like the first response was communicated to me. It was “company is going to do business in a different manner”. My take, easy way to get rid of people they don’t like, at least for the first round. I believe more to come.

Yep. The message is very clear. If you aren’t willing to accept the new direction the company is heading then get out.
