I worked at Pegasystems full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Location is good. Near the green and red line and not in Boston so less of a traffic issue. The benefits are pretty good. Those are really the only good things.

Cons

-Clunky, badly designed product. It's as if the products were developed for the sake of developing. Slow-loading, ugly to look at (even the most current 2014 versions). Honestly, don't understand why any client would choose their limiting software over a more common development solution. More money for less scalability and less adaptive software.
-Pay is not very competitive.
-Awful management that only cares about advancing their own careers (don't rock the boat). This seems to be the trend across all frameworks.
-Very corporate. EVERYTHING is political. And consequently it takes months to get even simple things done. They surround the old-school managers with young people but it's all smoke and mirrors. This is an "old" feeling company, not an agile, young one.
-Because of the corporate nature, there's very little room for advancement. The mangers are "lifers" and they seem to only promote people who either shmooze with them or who are also lifers. Feels like a dead end, and going to work gets tedious.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take a look at who your managers are. Break up the circle of buddies who aren't interested in keeping pace with the modern software world. Get rid of the base PRPC team of developers and designers and start over with capable people who want to create GOOD software. Right now it's just revisions of the same dated product, and it's past showing its age. It's virtually unusable.
