    "Great work and Compensation with No Compassion"

    • Compensation and Benefits
    • Senior Management

    Approves of CEO

    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. Finding someone to talk to in HR about your management is based on tribal knowledge and unlikely to actually affect much change. Career opportunities are limited unless you are at the head office.

    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.

    Former Employee - Solutions Consultant 
    Doesn't Recommend
    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 your career to the next level.
