Less than two years after setting up R&D operations in India, Pure Storage India has been recognized as a Great Place To Work® in 2024.


What makes a company a great place to work? For Pure Storage, it’s our commitment to fostering an empowering, diverse, and inclusive workplace culture where every employee can be exactly who they are and reach their highest potential.

Being recognized as a Great Place To Work® less than two years after setting up R&D operations in India is an important milestone in our journey and a testament to the collective effort of all our teams.

Great Place To Work® is the global authority on building, sustaining, and recognizing High-Trust, High-Performance Culture™ at workplaces. As part of this assessment, Great Place To Work® measured the perceptions of our employees using the Great Place To Work® Trust Index™ Employee Survey on five key dimensions: Credibility, Respect, Fairness, Pride, and Camaraderie.

It was heartening to see that we scored above the industry average (India Top 100 – Great Mid-size Workplaces) in three key areas: equity, fairness, and work-life balance. 

Our Values Define Who We Are

Pure Storage is founded on integrity and mutual respect, and we’re dedicated in our commitment to live out these principles through our core values: persistence, creativity, teamwork, ownership, and customer-first. 

Embracing Excellence: Elevating Employee Experience 

At Pure Storage, we believe in being a talent-magnet organization that fuels innovation and accelerates employee growth. We leverage our nimble, fast-paced, and highly innovative culture, as well as the growth that our business is undergoing, to promote an inclusive workplace where our employees are stretched to have an impact through collaboration around the globe. The imperative of diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) has never been so critical to creativity and business success and is a key pillar of Pure Storage’s growth.

Over the past year, we’ve made strides in attracting diverse top talent at all levels at the India Center. To support growth, development, and innovative thinking among our teams, we launched a number of wide-ranging initiatives and benefits for employees, including holistic health and wellness benefits, individualized development plans, internal mobility, flexible time off, and more. 

Ultimately, Pure Storage’s innovation depends on the growth and success of our employees, and we’re proud to share that Pure Storage has one of the highest employee engagement indices in the industry.

Here’s what our employees say about what makes Pure Storage a great workplace:

“Working here feels amazing, like being part of a supportive family where I always feel included and valued. The collaborative spirit and positive culture create an enjoyable and fulfilling environment. Furthermore, mentorship sessions and generous paid time off enhance the overall work experience, providing valuable opportunities for growth and a healthy work-life balance.”

“Pure Storage is uniquely positioned in the storage industry. Firstly, as the innovation leader, we are all encouraged to file ideas/patents, and within six months of joining the company, I was able to file four patents. There is no prejudice when discussing innovations and ideas. Secondly, Pure lets employees work independently and does not interfere unless the employee is not able to make progress and reaches out for help. I was working on a project that needed Windows expertise. I was given enough time to prepare, and when I wasn’t able to make progress and reached out for help, I was able to get all the help from across all the departments in the company.”

“Decentralized execution and full ownership of work. No micromanagement. Well-talented peers and genuine people. Risk-taking is encouraged. Gives me confidence to innovate. You are not judged for your failures [but] rather encouraged. Pay is good and on par with the market. Controlled spending and hiring gives a sense of security and removes the fear of getting fired. There is a transparency in the pay scale of the peers. So you get to know that you are not getting lowballed. As the company is post-IPO, you get to reap benefits from your performance. The steering wheel of the company is with visionary leaders and decisions (not all) made are transparent to a certain extent. Gives me hope that my future is in good hands. The company gives all the tools to succeed. If something is lagging, you get to reflect on yourself before questioning the environment. Promotions are transparent, so good work is always rewarded. It’s up to you to decide which gear you want to work. Workplace amenities are the best.”
