    I worked at Pegasystems full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Great location to be in and a truly unique product to work on. They actively try to use improve their scrum technique and the whole company is oriented around scrum.

    Cons

    Development feels siloed because of the way teams are organized. Once you are a developer for a certain area it's very hard to switch or try something new. And scrum rules and guidlines are valued and respected by the scrum team way more than the product owners. When a deadline is percieved scrum technique is pushed out of the window.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Micromanagement is a big issue. Managers (product owners and team managers) should be held accountable with a better feedback loop.

    Senior Business Architect Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Cambridge, MA
    Anonymous Employee in Cambridge, MA
    Interview Details

    The senior business architect position at Pegasystems is equivalent to a senior business analyst position. There are multiple rounds of interviews: an initial phone interview with HR, a second phone interview with HR, an online video interview/personality questionnaire, a phone interview with a senior manager, and then an interview day at Pegasystems headquarters. At interview day there’s two more interviews with staffing managers, a product demo, lunch, and then a live presentation/Q&A of a preselected topic to an interview panel.

    I found the overall interview process, from beginning to end, to be rather repetitive—the interviewers typically asked variations of the same questions. Interview questions primarily revolve around past experience and your resume. No trick questions (e.g., how many marbles fit in a 747).

    Make sure you read the presentation topic carefully and in detail.
