When it comes to work, what is important to you right now? What makes you say “yes” to a job offer, and once you’re there, what keeps you coming back day after day?
At Pega, we recently talked with hundreds of our people to learn the answers to these questions, and to find out what makes working at Pega unique and special. I was blown away by the honest, thoughtful responses! We heard real passion about helping clients solve problems that once seemed too complex; about engaging in meaningful work (as opposed to simple busywork); about being appreciated for their individuality and unique talents; and about the ability to define and direct their careers.
From hours of conversations, five similar themes emerged. I’m proud to share some of the comments from these discussions and the five top reasons our people say Pega is a great place to work.
1. Amazing teammates
“This strong foundation of trust, community, and support has given me endless opportunities to build my skills and confidence and has even opened up exciting challenges.”
-– Kacper, Cloud Development Engineer
We hire proactive people who not only set high standards – they help each other exceed them. When you work at Pega, you’re part of a team that’s smart, collaborative, and caring, at work and beyond. No problem is too complicated, and no solution too hard to reach. But we recognize that the scale of our work can’t be tackled alone, so we value collaboration. We work fast, push ourselves hard, but never forget to help each other out.
2. Growth opportunities
“Pega has been amazing for my career and personal growth. Being at the intersection of technology and go-to-market is where I belong.”
-- Matt, Sr. Manager for Platform Product Strategy & Marketing
We’re growing fast, and our people are able to grow with us. Move around, move up, even change direction. We champion constant learning so you can unlock opportunities you never thought possible.
3. Work-life balance
“As our kitchens became offices, Pega made a range of well-being apps available to help us keep balance in our lives.”
-- Jo, Director of Corporate Communications
Working hard is one thing, but working smart is even better. We’ve all got a lot going on beyond the workday, and we’re committed to helping our employees create both a great life and a great career.
4. Constant innovation
“Coming up with that initial spark, seeing my team’s reaction, and moving it forward together is part of every day at Pega.”
-- Shuchi, Talent Advisory Partner
We love doing things that haven’t been done before, and we’re not afraid of a challenge. We live for bold ideas, big or small. And we know they can come from anywhere. Our people say Pega is a place where you can speak up, be heard, share your vision, and make a difference for our company, our clients, and our communities.
5. Real impact
“We developed a safe COVID-19 screening solution for our client, fast. Things like that make me proud to be part of the team.”
-- Wanda, Senior Manager of Global Sales Operations
Pega people are helping leading organizations solve problems no one else can and impacting the lives of thousands of people every day around the globe. When you think about it, the solutions we develop for our clients enable them to provide amazing, personalized experiences, in turn, to their customers. Not only do we deliver real impact, we approach every partnership with integrity, keeping our promises to clients and to one another. In times of change and uncertainty, our solutions are more important than ever.
