    I have been working at Pegasystems full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I just celebrated month 6 at Pegasystems. People are great here. They practice what they preach. Very passionate about the work, technology and showing empathy towards others.

    Cons

    Training and enablement is second to none. However, consultants can be on the bench for an inordinate amount of time. But bench consultants have plenty internal projects to work on

    I have been working at Pegasystems full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    When I started at Pega I knew I had made it to the cutting edge of tech for business, but I quickly learned that we are also in a fantastic position to scale. The org structure is fine tuned to continuously improve the products, help employees grow, and help integrators / customers adopt Pega. Management wants to win, so if you are driven and a continuous learner you will fit right in.

    Cons

    The onboarding process can be rigorous. In the first 2 months you'll know if Pega is right for you. Agile onboarding - fail fast!

    I have been working at Pegasystems full-time

    Pros

    Technology is strong. Company is growing.

    Cons

    Serious diversity problem. If you're not a middle aged white man you will not fit in. Very much a boy club culture from top down. Very few women in leadership or even individual contributor roles for solution consultants, customer success, account executives, or services. If you are a women I would find a more diverse company. Sales quotas are unrealistic between the minisucule territories and the way sales commissionable value is calculated. I have seen very few people hit their quota and no one seems able to hit it on an annual basis.

    It's a company where you can learn lot on the job. If you get to work with different companies, you get to learn about working in different business domains. The company managememt does give lot of opportunities for upskilling, and genuinely has interest in your career growth.

    Cons

    The product features should be streamlined further.

    I have been working at Pegasystems full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Pega is simply amazing. Center-out business architecture, rapid innovation, future-proof technology, end-to-end automation with a laser focus on world class customer engagement and experience. But it doesn't end there. Pega is unique in that leadership and employees, as a whole, are all on a mission to incorporate this innovation combined with values focused on innovation, inclusiveness, passion and adaptability to continuously make Pega a great place to work, a great company to be a part of. Culture is a focus and a priority. And while culture is always a work in progress, Pega and leadership make this a top priority and are always committed to looking for ways to make Pega even better. You can't ask for more than that. Great people, great teamwork and collaboration.

    Cons

    I've been with Pega now for 8 months. We're not perfect as nobody is. We have challenges just as every company does. But it's the commitment from leadership and all employees to lock arms and address these head on in an effort to continuously improve. I love this and it speaks to Pega's great and evolving culture as well it's transparency.
