    Pros

    Product and some of the people are great. Some great customers and the problems that are being solved are challenging.

    Cons

    Culture is shocking. It is like if you have gone back to the dark ages in terms of culture. There is no buzz and many people have this vacant look, just trying to make it to retirement. With a product that can seriously challenge the market leaders it needs to create a culture of hunger and fun.

    Advice to Management

    Go.

    Pros

    Pretty much everything. Since I've started, there's nothing, literally NOTHING I can complain about. On-boarding process is amazing, constant feedback and support add strong value, performance management - outstanding. Very dynamic and friendly team makes you work harder and achieving success in this company is just a matter of time with such management!

    Cons

    Haven't spotted any yet :)

    Pros

    Very rarely to you find a "small company feel" in a large organisation, however this is exactly what you get at Pega. Everyone is part of a family, and all staff share the same vision and values right across the globe.
    The onboarding process was one of the best I have come across, on my first day I was on a course along with 11 other starters from all across EMEA, all doing very different roles, and this was a great way to understand what the company does as a whole.
    We met with a wide range of people from across the organisation and different departments, and on our second day were taken out for a fantastic meal with senior management.

    Once actually starting the role, one of the main things that stand out for me is the ongoing training, one-to-ones and continued support from management and directors, and how accessible senior members of staff are. From the outset, there is a clear training structure, and you will discuss what needs to be done to achieve your goals.

    This is a rapidly growing company, and it is clear that there will be plenty of opportunity to progress and grow. Some of the members of staff here have worked here for almost 20 years, which really does speak a lot.

    Cons

    I am yet to find any!
