    Pros

    Pega's success with brand-name customers and high rankings from Gartner and Forrester have led to profitable growth. Executives have vision for the company's future. Still has a small-company feel: with people collaborating to get things done without getting territorial, and with founder still leading and majority shareholder. Reasonably rewarding environment for the ambitious and competent.

    Cons

    Still has a small-company feel: the official policies, procedures, and systems that may have been appropriate a couple years ago no longer function well after ~20% growth year over year. If you want a clock-watching job where everything already works, you won't fit here.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing in particular. Will be interesting to see where further growth takes Pega (or, if you're skeptical, whether the growth rate can be maintained). Executive team is very comfortable with change so can't say they're letting things get too stale.

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Pegasystems.

    Interview

    I was called by a recruiter after applying online. We talked about my experience and about the role. I felt as though the recruiter wasn't doing a good job explaining the position so it was hard to talk about my experience that related to the position. She also asked the typical interview questions like "where do you see yourself in 5 years?" I was told I would hear back the next day if they would move on with my candidacy. They didn't get back to me so I emailed and I was told they moved on to other candidates. A few days later the job ad was posted again so clearly that wasn't the case.
