    Pros

    Extremely transparent company where you can safely take everything at face value. Yes, the technology is unmatched. Yes, the people are driven, collaborative, reasonable, professional. Yes, the growth curve is steep, and the upside potential to take a dominant position in an enormous market and rocket your career ahead is inspiring.

    Cons

    Same concept of transparency applies to 'cons' as well, and for people who thrive in a high growth, see-it-fix-it environment, the cons are part of the package. Yes, we struggle with diversity like every other tech biz. Yes, we struggle with scalable systems and silos like every other almost-$1b biz. Yes, we struggle with brand recognition like every other market underdog. Yes, we struggle with prioritization like every other founder-led biz. And for the people who will thrive at Pega, none of those are cons -- just more stuff to fix as we grow.

    Advice to Management

    Retain the entrepreneurial environment where leaders need to live and breathe the financial implications of their decisions. Tighten up the portfolio to have fewer, better, higher margin products.

    Pega Platform is one of the most innovative 4th generation software for the developments of applications. Virtually no coding is needed to develop basic process applications

    Cons

    I have been working at Pegasystems full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Pega has great products that work; makes my job that much easier. Pega is a growing company. Thought leadership is real, not just a catch phrase. I am constantly learning and engaged, and my talents are being fully utilized. Pega does a great job of rewarding hard work, and hires great people. Senior leadership is invested in the work me and my teams do.

    Cons

    There is room for improving internal processes that get in the way of getting work done. Sometimes senior leadership is too heavily involved in the work me and my teams do. (But I prefer this over senior leadership not knowing anything about the work me and my teams do so more of a Pro.) Like several other software companies, there are more men than women.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to hire great people, and let them do what you hired them to do. Pega needs to work harder at recruiting more women in leadership positions, especially at the senior level.

    Cons

    Pros

    Pega's products are consistently described by analysts as "best in class". With clearly defined differentiating capabilities, selling at Pega is an exciting endeavor. The organization is wonderfully supportive of it's account executives as they work with cross-functional teams that enable customers to realize their digital transformation objectives.

    Cons

    Having worked at Pega for 7 months, I haven't yet had a single negative experience. Pega is a terrific place to achieve one's professional ambitioins

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing.
