    Remote work, Self reliance, ability to grow vertically, ability to work in familiar vertical

    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.

    Pros

    Creativity, drive and leadership are welcomed and promoted.. treats itself as a large startup.

    Cons

    Some bad apples w/ dissenting attitudes. Definitely not the majority though.

    In addition, because of the 'agile' mindset there can be priorities which shift too quickly (i.e. what you're measured against can change too often).
