My time there was like being in a concentration camp
Administrative Assistant/Partner Concierge (Former Employee) –  Cambridge, MAJune 14, 2016
This seems like great company, many young staff members.

I reported to another contract staff member, and the micromanagement was overkill. No communication, no speaking for that matter! Could only speak/ask questions a 4:00 pm each day, which was not conducive to the clients asking these questions in different countries.

If you work with and for a great, experienced manager, great. If you work for someone given more power than they should have, RUN, RUN FAST AND DON'T LOOK BACK!
Pros
None
Cons
Too many to list

Cloud Customer Success Lead (Current Employee) –  Cambridge, MAOctober 5, 2015
Pega is a great company if you wish to devote your whole life to it. Unfortunately I am not billionaire and cannot not attribute success to that factor. What they have not realized is that there is a balance between work and job that connote only be obtained from leadership balance goals.
Pros
Great organization
Cons
Your life is always on the line

Good place to work!
n/a (Current Employee) –  Cambridge, MAAugust 26, 2015
Overall, I think Pegasystems is a pretty good place to work at.

There is definitely growth opportunities in the team. Many of the senior members started out as contractors, and have grown into different roles which is very encouraging.

Work is challenging. Culture is good. Many fun events organized outside of work which is a good opportunity to network/socialize.
Pros
work/life balance, opportunities to grow
Cons
reporting/tracking

Marketing Manager (Current Employee) –  Cambridge, MAAugust 21, 2015
The company does have a lot of smart people who work here and the cutlure is great if you are ok with work life balance being more blurred and not seperate. There is flexibility with work hours but if you don't really love what you do then Pega may not be the place for you. If you work autonomously and are self motivated you will strive here. If you need higher level top down management then Pega isn't a good fit.
Pros
Smart People, Great Product
Cons
Sometimes has some long days

Room to grow
Recruiter (Current Employee) –  Cambridge, MAAugust 19, 2015
I started at Pega as a Contract Sourcer and think it's a great model to learn the business, while getting your feet wet in Corporate Recruiting. The model is metrics-based and transparent, and the nice part is, Contractors work on-site and get to feel like a part of the team.

Most of the team has an Agency background, which I think helps prepare for the fast-paced environment.

All of the management team started in the same Contracto Sourcing role so there is a ton of room for growth.
Pros
- Upward Mobility - Smart, collaborative culture

Corporate Recruiting Sourcer (Former Employee) –  Cambridge, MAJuly 5, 2015
This place is horrible. They will not train you correctly at all, and next thing you no they throw you right to the curb for "underperforming".

Pegasystems is an excellent company to work for. They are a global leader in BPM technology. I work in Professional Services, which requires a lot of travel.

Young company with innovative ideas and room to grow
Team Lead (Current Employee) –  Cambridge, MAJuly 6, 2013
Pega feels like a start up that has yet to "grow up" despite huge boom in population growth over the past two years.

The proprietary products are innovative and serve a wide range of customers across many verticals. Learning curve is steep but job security is good once you have the base/core product knowledge under your belt.

Engineering department is primarily young - 5 years experience or less with many college grads led by senior developers (some of which have been with the company since inception).
Pros
Relaxed culture, ease of access to leadership/management
Cons
Lack of structure, policy, quaity procedures; conflicting lines of business between engineering and product management

Certified Systems Architect (Former Employee) –  Cambridge, MAJune 25, 2012
A typical day as an architect will consist of supporting, developing and de-bugging applications in their proprietary BPM product. There is supposed to be an emphasis on re-use and performance but neither are enforced, management prefers to see applications developed very quickly. Architects who become familiar with their software and are willing to bring work home at night and on weekends can succeed.
