    Former Employee - Senior Systems Architect in Boston, MA

    I worked at Pegasystems

    Pros

    The pay is decent. The hours are OK

    Cons

    The company has little regard for its employees in the Professional Services department. They are treated as interchangable machine parts with little regard to matching geographic location with project location. You may live 10 miles from a site with 3 people flying in from Canada each week.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Produce a product which does what you promise it is going to do

    Doesn't Recommend
