    I have been working at Pegasystems full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    You will work with the smartest folks solving problems for the most well-known clients with a technology platform that is well-respected by all the analyst firms. The compensation is competitive and the stock options are a big plus.

    Cons

    If you ever have a life event of any consequence, there will be no accommodation or compassion. Whether it is a birth in the family, parental responsibilities, illness, divorce or otherwise - it will be an opportunity for management to try to demote or push you out of the organization. Few managers actually have a heart and there is no organizational memory on what you have given to the company regardless of your tenure....

    Advice to Management

    You need to have a mechanism to track and report workplace hostility, inappropriate requests for doctor's notes and situations where people have feared for their job security because of their life circumstances that they have shared with their managers.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Pegasystems full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    You learn a lot about the industry you are aligned to and the BPM/BRE industry. The technology itself is pretty unique.

    Cons

    This is where your career goes to die! The VP of Solution Consulting controlled everyone's salary on an individual basis. If he thought you deserve a raise you would get one. If he didn't then you didn't. No clear understanding of career progression and they didn't invest in you. Your direct manager had essentially no control over anything. they were mostly resource managers as opposed to leaders who could help you take...

    I worked at Pegasystems full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Decent Pay , Excellent Infrastructure, Free lunch,Good work life balance.

    Cons

    Not a Good place to grow Technical,Exposure to new technology is very limited. Very late adopter for new technologies and more focus on bug fix counts instead of making product better.

    Advice to Management

    Management is not good.Less opportunity provided to showcase solutions. More focus on delivery thus making the bringings more bugs rather than good product. No proper coordination between Engineering and Framework team while updating the product features.

    Pros

    If you're looking for something out of the box/cutting edge that will keep you learning then you might be pleasantly surprised at what Pega has to offer. Great technology in the Digital Process Automation space, numerous clients and an aggressive push and footprint ensure its success in an ever changing and evolving technology landscape - which is just fine as it lives up to its potential of 'build for change'. So, yes...

    Cons

    Not much to think of - give it a go and decide for yourself!

    Advice to Management

    Transparency and keeping the finger on the pulse of everyone in different teams is a great thing so keep up the great work and continue encouraging the team - there are quite a few folks in the leadership team who are very inspiring to talk to and it's great that you are more accessible than ever.

    I have been working at Pegasystems for less than a year

    Pros

    Collegial and curious learning and working environment makes for great culture. Everyone is a team player, humble and excited to drive growth in support of the industry's best-in-class products. Great energy at Pega right now.

    Cons

    As with any larger tech companies, Pega has an opportunity to improve some of its operational efficiencies on its business side of the house. If you're used to start-up culture, the larger size may intimate you. If not, you'll excel knowing that you're well supported, even when you have a few more stakeholders involved.

    Advice to Management

    Excited to see the good work that will come from the new Diversity & Inclusion Director hire.

    I have been working at Pegasystems for less than a year

    Pros

    It has been a pleasure being given the level of opportunity, interactivity, and responsibility I was given in this 13-week internship at Pegasystems. I would say this culture has such a strong sense of authenticity and transparency. Having had a summer internship last summer (at another company) where rigid communication structure stifled my comfort level and work abilities, I felt Pega allowed me maximize the value...

    Cons

    At times (infrequently) I did not have much to do. However I understand that it comes with the territory as an intern and I do feel that my team and department did its best to find valuable/meaningful work for me. My only other "con" if I can even call it that, is I've gotten so accustomed to being here that it feels weird to say this is my last week in the office (at least as an intern).

    Advice to Management

    Thank you for the experience. Please continue to do what you do and provide the supportive, efficient, and effective culture and intern program that allowed myself and many other interns to thrive. Know that your work is well-appreciated and you are great at what you do.

    I have been working at Pegasystems for less than a year

    Pros

    Great atmosphere and team, interns are treated like normal employees and could take part in many courses and events and company provided 5 days of paid vacation during internship.

    Cons

    The only con is the form of contract of employment, but this issue is more related to taxation system which have changed during internship to the disadvantage to interns.

    Advice to Management

    Change contract of employment to contract of mandate, but left 5 days of paid leave.

    I worked at Pegasystems full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great Visionary CEO, Acquisitions strategy, Ecosystems expansion, Pega University, Chordiant and Antenna acquisition and integration with Pega

    Cons

    Understanding ground reality, Product performance and Cloud service promotion in comparison with Salesforce. Proprietary software and learning curve is limited

    Advice to Management

    Create products which are focused on Cloud. Senior management works in comforts zone and lack of fresh ideas and opportunities
