    I have been working at Pegasystems full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Comp and benefits are great, people and management are supportive, and it's easy to get things done. They also pay additional bonuses for completing sales activity and training. By far the best company I've worked for.

    Cons

    I work remote because of the territory I cover, so I don't get some of the perks that those who work out of HQ do (ex., lunch, gym membership options, etc.). However, there are so many other incentives and benefits available, not being able to partake in the local perks is not even a blip on the radar.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up!

    Great people - smart, open, friendly, challenging. Good life/work balance and flexibility. Above average benefits. Super smart CEO. Located between Kendall Square and Lechmere with lots of fun restaurants and shops close by.

    Open office environment can be distracting. Lots of decision making is limited to top of organization.

    Advice to Management

    Delegate decision making a bit more

    Good support and good people at the organization. Generally flexible with working conditions if you are good at what you do.

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

    Pros

    - Benefits are pretty good.
    -Colleagues are nice to work with for the most part
    - The technology is solid

    Cons

    - There is an insane amount of micromanagement where an employee feels useless and not empowered to do his job.
    - You will probably be hired to do something and end up doing something completely different.
    -Pega feels very wall-streetish and it is not run as a software company
    - Employees are not trusted and not treated with respect.

    Advice to Management

    Stop bashing the competition and focus on empowering your employees.
