    I have been working at Pegasystems full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Team is intelligent and motivated. Lots of fantastic training available and super online resources. Great sales and implementation methodology. Good beneifts. Lots of people with very long tenure. Pega's management team are in it for the long term, building value and take sensible decisions. Company was rated in the top 100 companies to trust by Forbes.

    Cons

    Very prescriptive working approach and quite a narrow target market. Will be interesting to see how Pega tackles moving beyond the target account approach.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep product focus and avoid trying to be all things to all people.

    Sometimes the processes can be long but we are after all the leader in Business Process Management, so there are bound to be a few processes.

    Pros

    Everyone is very committed to succeeding and spur each other on. The excitement for the product and which business process we can transform next is contagious - Pega is always thinking of ways to improve their best practices and looking for ways to beat the curve. They are also heavily committed to nurturing the career development of their staff. Great benefits eg. UK holiday has just been increased to stay competitive!

    Cons

    If you aren't prepared to push and drive yourself to be better for the success of customers, the improvement of the company and yourself, you will find this a difficult place to work. Integrity really shines here and adaptive behaviour is what you need, not least because the product is so adaptive so if that isn't you, you will struggle at Pega.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the way you look after your employees and carry on cultivating the values and culture of Pega.
