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

Pros

Good product, great people in the trenches, market leadership position of strength, well positioned for a long run.

Cons

Too many big egos in senior management that do not add value. Compensation has been reduced in order to drive stock value. Top performers will not stay for the long term as a result. Professional Services leadership only interested in 50% margins and not customer success. Must learn to bite your tongue to survive.

Advice to Management

Act like you've been to a big company before. Start sharing the wealth with those who deliver. Recognize which leaders are anything but.

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

    Pros

    Interesting Product and some smart people left (but they're nearly all gone or retired)

    Cons

    Abusive management - You are either flogged to get work done, or you become one of those who do the flogging Too much offshoring - US Engineering mostly serves to compensate for poor quality of India output. Uninformed decisioning - your feedback is not welcomed, your only job is to make your boss look good. The "new" offices are pretty on the surface, but reveal the underlying heavily politicized pecking order

    Advice to Management

    There is a lot of deadwood in senior management costing the company heavily - cut them out, and give the rank and file time to recover and grow.

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

    Pros

    Learned a lot; especially on how to stick up for myself under stress

    Cons

    Management did not care about thier employees. There were always fire drills for pointless exercises, tons of stress and no work/life balance. No budget ever for help or technology other than using thier own to solve every departmental need.

    Advice to Management

    It's time to invest in your people!
