    Cons

    Hire to Fire. Worse Management Skill. Can't express yourself of any problem.
    No projects to work on . No clear route to success.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employee issue, find out their problem and help them to sort out.
    Allocate Employee to shadow on project and let them work independently with supervision as required. Give your employee appropriate time to develop instead of hiring and firing.

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

    Pros

    Good benefits, work from home, good compensation

    Cons

    Overall internal communication issues. Promises that were made during the interview did not come into place, make sure you ask the right questions prior to accepting an offer. Long sales cycles up to 18 months and very complicated processes. To focused on set amount of target accounts. If not for the MBOs would be hard to get a bit of extra money. Lack of resources and no business development team anymore to help with prospecting, to much expected from field sales. High staff turnover people are being hired and leave monthly. To many unneccessary processes.

    Advice to Management

    Improve overall internal communication and stop cutting out important resources that are required for success. Stop hiring unskilled managers that have no clue on how to manage a team. Instead of keep hiring new people, find a way to retain existing staff and make sure they feel valued and listen to them! More honesty and being straight forward would also help!

    I have been working at Pegasystems full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Pega 7 is cool technology and quite different from any other rules engine/case management/customer engagement platform.
    And now Pega has added robotic automation and AI!
    Every project I work on I meet with a new set of colleagues - and every single one of them is made of awesome!

    Cons

    I work in EMEA - however the company can feel quite US-centric at times.
    I work in consulting - it can be tough living half your life in hotels and eating every meal in a restaurant 3 or 4 nights a week - tough on yourself, tough on your health and tough on your family - it's not for everyone.

    Advice to Management

    It's not all about the US - let's have a PegaWorld somewhere nice in Europe for a change!
    Try to focus on getting the number of hotel nights down - think of our health, both physical and mental!
