    Pros

    HR APAC do a great job at working hard to implement benefits and perks. Their Women@Pega programe is awesome and i feel, an industry leader. One of the best leadership teams I have worked with and supported. I feel apart of a great team who genuinely care about their staff. There is an open door policy and the team really do enjoy working together. Its fun, lively, busy and challenging.

    Cons

    If you want "easy" "come in, go home" "do my work, not here to make friends" then this isnt the place for you. At Pega APAC the vibe is, this is your office, this is your team, this is our growth - be apart of it. Its rewarding and you need to be a supportive team player. The reward is well worth it. Its a place of growth, challenge, responsibility and substance.

    Advice to Management

    Dont listen to the hostile leavers. They weren't cut out for it in the first place.

    I worked at Pegasystems full-time (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

    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.

    Pros

    Great training opportunities. Pega really encourages continuous learning which is very important in the IT industry. Most employees I have met are smart and enthusiastic.

    Cons

    It appears as though the management structure is confusing and not as mature as you'd expect from a company the size of Pega.
