A company who caresMar 13, 2023 - Talent Attraction ConsultantRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
There is a lot of energy and emphasis on employee on creating an inclusive community as well as a positive employee experience. On the technology side, Pega is focused on product features that are AI-driven, very exciting!
Would love increased communication on when to expect raises, etc.

Great company, could use a little more internal disciplineMay 27, 2023 - ConsultingRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Excellent ethically, fantastic technology, great sense of social responsibility, cares about its employees. Customer success with the technology is front and center to the ideology and the initiatives moving forward in 2023.
Internally, not much discipline. Despite "one Pega" intention, lost of silos, mainly because too many people involved in any one project, deal or task. Sales discipline is non-existent and sales maturity is not strong. Tactical vs strategic approach, although the company is determined to become more strategic it is struggling to do so.Continue reading

Eyes Wide Open Next TimeApr 28, 2023 - Would Rather Not ShareRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
They pay well, however much of the compensation is deferred (e.g., Restricted Shares), etc.
The company is in the middle of a big legal fight with one of its competitors, which has caused a lot of uncertainty, loss of share value, internal swirl, and resulted in a large number of employees exiting. Much of their compensation is deferred, so you will not likely realize the value of your overall compensation package. Pega software is antiquated, hard to deploy, and hard for companies to realize value after deployment. Additionally, the amount of diversity at the executive level is very poor (I believe there is only 1 woman on the executive council, and it's an HR position). Sadly, my time at Pega was an extremely poor career move.Continue reading

Strange environment...great if you are in the clique or have been there since the beginning of timeApr 7, 2023 - Senior Director MarketingRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Like anywhere else, some people are friendly. Unlimited time off.
Disingenuous throughout the hiring process about what you will actually be able to accomplish in your role and the amount of empowerment you will have. Incredible judgement and backlash if you question anyone or anything outside of your perceived scope...even if the questions enable you to do your job better. Benefits - besides time off - are horrible. The worst I have ever had. What is that saying? The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, yet somehow hoping for a change. There are a TON of employees who have been there forever....they are the ones who get promoted, even to roles that they have ZERO tangible experience in. The management is very shortsighted and unable to trust anyone besides the 15-20 employees who have been there forever. They hire some amazing new talent, and then when things get difficulty, and ones who challenged the paradigm are the first to go...and the lifers who are largely ineffective, static in the growth and dormant in their skillset are left. If you look back at history, this is what Pega does time and time again. It is their MO. Someone feels a little feisty, hires someone who is scrappy and edgy, and then they get scared of change and lay them off. INSANITY. They need new blood, new voices and new leadership. The only growth is when the CEO reads a new book or listens to a podcast and then its all about that whim for the next year. Right now, they are all about the Rule of 40. That should have been obvious years ago. Good luck.Continue reading

Not my favorite place to workMar 9, 2023 - SpecialistRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Some scheduling flexibility - not at EOQ which means you work through Christmas and New Years Health insurance is okay if you pay for the more expensive plan.
Executive management is out of touch with the job responsibilities of non-client facing teams - they push goals that are unrealistic Unlimited Time Off but vacation is rejected based on resourcing issues Favoritism definitely occurs within the different departments End of Quarter equates to working 90 hours a week for the last two weeks of the quarter - this is not compensated, even for employees that don’t make commission.Continue reading

Great technology, great peopleApr 19, 2023 - Vice President Information Technology in Waltham, MARecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
There are a lot of talented people working at the company and a lot of opportunities for those who are willing to step in and make an impact. Their focused GTM model is producing more positive results.
Annual goals are directionally the right things to do, but they could benefit from more clarity and clearer metrics for mesaurement.Continue reading

Terrible Place to WorkApr 15, 2023 - Anonymous EmployeeRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
The only good thing about Pega is the unlimited vacation time and they are great about letting you use it.
Horrible communication, disorganized, the process changed every week, management is terrible, truly feel like just a number there and no one recognizes real talent. They also hired people remotely and promised to stay remote and then forced people to come inContinue reading
