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

    Pros

    Company is investing in people and that makes employees be passionate about customers

    Cons

    Diversity and 50/50 between men and women but they trying really hard to balance it I must admit

    Advice to Management

    Work more in brand recognition. Pega is great company and we need more work in brand awarness .

    I have been working at Pegasystems full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Salary. Friendly colleagues.
    The product is good.
    Work balance OK.

    Cons

    No career opportunities in the UK. No training. Niche product.
    If you have any ambition at all, go somewhere else.
    If you are just in for the money, come in and plan to only stay for few years.
    Also, considering how little investment there is in the UK, then there is frankly not a long term good outlook. Be warned.
    In many aspect, UK reading is not anymore the headquarter in Europe.
    That's why I simply can't recommend anyone in the UK to join.
    But if you were in Poland or India then I would recommend it.

    Advice to Management

    Well ,none. You are doing good for the company, but Pega is simply not a good proposition for UK job applicant.

    Pros

    - good perks
    - lots of nice people
    - good career progression if you're liked

    Cons

    - micromanagement of junior recruitment employees
    - recruiters not trained on how to manage people working for them
    - thankless task despite regional success
    - a very clear hierarchal structure within the team

    Advice to Management

    - train recruiters on how to speak to / manage sourcing team
    - more flexibility, work from home options (including a Friday)
    - would recommend Pega to a friend, but not a sourcing role

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

    Pros

    Good salary
    Good benefits (pension, bonus, healthcare, dental etc).

    Cons

    The culture is very process driven, with little to no opportunity for junior staff like myself to make any impact or changes. The culture will continue like this aslong as things are done the way they always have been ‘just because’. I’m in a solutions consulting role, and know how the market changes, yet we continue to follow processes followed when managers were on the ground. The organisation and leadership are obsessed with SalesForce, despite them being 10x the size of us.

    Advice to Management

    Stop just doing things because it’s the way things have been done before. Drive innovation with your employees (all). And start to live by our motto of Build for Chnage.

    Pros

    Nice Office, Good pay and benefit

    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.

    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!
