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

Pros

company is in very strong markets, continues to performs well and seems likely to enjoy future growth, although growth has slowed in past year

Cons

Don't cross the CEO. He has to dominate everything, dictates how things are done and seems to enjoys publicly humiliating others. See other reviews on this site for similar views

    Pros

    Nice that you build everything using one product/technology.
    If you're in with management you're a protected class
    Interesting challenges

    Cons

    Cruel and selfish old boy network. Mangers have little skill in leadership and are not forth coming with face to face honesty.

    You're pigeonholed into a single product and you lose cross application and state of the art skills.

    Very male centric club. Women don't bother pretending it will change. It hadn't yet.

    Advice to Management

    Remove half of your leadership team and one level below. Start over and recruit legitimate managers who have vision and can support and represent their organizations.

    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.
