    I worked at Pegasystems full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Smart people, innovative products, good perks, location awesome if you're based out of the Cambridge office. Rational telecommuting policy.

    Cons

    Uneven management - some really need training, some are excellent.

    Advice to Management

    Be sure to have all your managers go through management training - I switched teams in order to get away from a bad manager.

    Pros

    If you're smart and hardworking, Pega does a great job of developing you. Lots of opportunities for growth within the company. The company itself is growing and the product set continues to evolve. Employees are passionate about the technology and about Pega. Good benefits, including parking. Good work-life balance since you are trusted to do what you need to do to get your job done.

    Cons

    Communication between and within teams could be improved. It can be a process to get things approved and lower level managers do not have the authority to make any real decisions.

    Advice to Management

    Empower your newer leaders to make decisions on their own.

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

    Pros

    a small handful of people that I worked with were the only reason I didn't go insane.

    Pros

    Great culture, challenging work and the opportunity to grow. If you want to succeed in your role and beyond then Pega will support you 100%.

    Cons

    The benefits (401k match) are not the best, but they are always working on expanding them so eventually it will even out.

    Advice to Management

    Keep progressing on your employer of choice efforts!

    Collaboration in a scrum room environment makes social nerds like myself happy to come to work every day. Interaction with people from around the globe enriches my cultural awareness to build together a great product within a fair trade exchange.

    Every con is dealt with fast and turns into an opportunity to grow and get better.
