    I have been working at Pegasystems full-time

    Pros

    Best technology in the market - and doing amazing things for customers Smart people with a passion for excellence Market Leading benefits Committed leadership that lead from the front

    Cons

    High performance can take a toll on work life balance - but that is a personal choice. The leadership team have genuinely looked to address in the last three years...

    Advice to Management

    Keep focused on your staff - they are the secret sauce that allow Pega to be such a force in the market.

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

    Pros

    Pega products are good and new features are business friendly

    Cons

    Management push staff to put positive reviews on glassdoor instead of tackling culture issues and caring for team. Middle management are all talk but deliver no value. It’s hard to know what they actually deliver.

    Advice to Management

    Streamline and cull some of the middle management. Invest in client facing staff.

    I worked at Pegasystems full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Reasonable pay Moderate extras Flexibility if you aren't an onsite personal

    Cons

    Heavily bonus based, no control of utilization within control of employee. Very cult like, and don't like to be called out. Misogynistic managers who will try to cover this with false interest. Conditions and entitlements vary greatly between zones. Not disability friendly Low utilisation with very low expectation of work load increase

    Advice to Management

    Actually engage with employees at all levels. Listen to what people say instead of having image as first priority. Follow through on promises made to staff

    I worked at Pegasystems full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The software is awesome and a lot of R&D is put into the product

    Cons

    Pega APAC Management operate a 'boys club' culture where bullying is acceptable and HR turn a blind eye. They proclaim to be a 'great place to work' and tick the boxes but don't actually follow through on their promises. You only need to look at the staff turnover to see that facts speaks volumes.

    Advice to Management

    Seek professional training on how to work in a corporate environment and very soon you will see it's 'Not OK' to treat your staff like that. Time for a change in Management would be my suggestion!

    Pros

    Global software vendor, however, you can find far better elsewhere

    Cons

    Zero diversity, Old bully boy culture, smoke and mirrors leadership - flexible working a complete farce. Women @ Pega hypocritical when leaders are making jokes such as ‘you’re a women it’s your job to fill up the dishwasher’

    Advice to Management

    Managment needs to rethink key staff especially when they can’t deliver

    I worked at Pegasystems full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    It's hard to find anything meaningful there are some genuinely nice people. Unfortunately, none of them are in leadership roles.

    Cons

    Very political environment. The APAC leadership team clearly don't trust their people. They talk a lot of hype about things like "flexible work arrangements" but then shame people into feeling guilty whenever they utilize it. HR is nothing more then an administrative function that provides no real strategic value.

    Advice to Management

    There are very clear reasons why the employee satisfaction survey results keep getting worse year after year. Pay attention! A serious investigation should be conducted on the effectiveness of the current HR team.
