PTC – Why Work For Us?

We’re at the early stages of a fundamental transformation, marking what could be one of the most significant disruptions to the manufacturing industry since the Industrial Revolution. As one of the world’s largest and fastest-growing technology companies, PTC helps manufacturing leaders address these transformative forces to achieve and sustain product and service advantage.

PTC solutions for Product Lifecycle Management (PLM), Computer Aided Design (CAD), Application Lifecycle Management (ALM), Supply Chain Management (SCM) and Service Lifecycle Management (SLM) enable process transformation by empowering you to aggregate, analyze, and deploy product information to drive the strategy and dynamic decision-making processes on which your success depends. Our solutions help you optimize the activities within individual functions of your organization, and align them across your entire enterprise: from engineering to supply chain and manufacturing, and sales and service.

Today, PTC works with more than 28,000 businesses around the world to help them design and service products in rapidly-evolving, globally distributed manufacturing industries, including industrial equipment, automotive, high tech and electronics, aerospace and defense, retail, consumer, and medical devices. By partnering with PTC, you can cultivate and exploit your best product ideas from concept and engineering through delivery and service.

As your business evolves, and your challenges increase in complexity, our goal is unchanged - to deliver technology solutions that help you achieve, and sustain, a product and service advantage.

PTC is a fast-paced, results-oriented organization. Our major focus is helping companies gain a significant competitive advantage by transforming how they create and service their products. Our people are goal-driven, competitive and team-oriented. We have high expectations for ourselves and others.
Our reputation for excellence within the industry and our focus on ethical behavior are our top priorities. The leadership team encourages employee empowerment and hard-work, though we recognize that a balance between work and non-work life is critical to maintaining passion and intensity in our careers.
The foundation of PTC’s work culture comes from a set of seven core values. To learn more about PTC’s dynamic culture, see the definitions of each value below.
 

 
Our Core Values

Excellence

We strive to rise above ‘good’ to be “the best.” We believe in having a positive, competitive, optimistic and realistic approach to everything we do. We hold ourselves to high standards that will truly produce excellence, which makes us a great company.

Innovation and Empowerment

We drive to innovate by integrating the needs of our customers, evolving markets, new technology and the expertise of our employees throughout the world. We are empowered to share our thoughts and bring our ideas to the forefront to be heard.

Integrity and Professionalism

We conduct ourselves in a professional and ethical manner. It means doing what is right, even when no one is looking and serves as a cornerstone of our present and future success.

Social Responsibility through Shared Value

We engage with the communities in which we work and give back to them. We develop and participate in programs that create value for our community and our company.

Teamwork

We have a team spirit that is the essence of our winning organization. No single group is responsible for our success — it is achieved through collaboration, diverse ideas, skills and experiences. We address challenges and opportunities as one team fighting one fight until our customers reach success.

Winning

We are diligent in our pursuit of victory. We will do everything we can to win and when we don’t, we learn from it to improve for the future. We drive hard toward attaining successful results.

Customer Success

We are relentless in enhancing the value proposition for our customers. We are committed to our customers’ success and use it as an indicator of the success of PTC. We declare victory when the customer finds they are getting value from our solutions.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at PTC.

    Interview

    Started with a phone screen with the Recruiter, then had a phone interview with the manager. I then came in to meet with the manager and a couple members of the team. Overall a quick process and good experience. I received an interview packet from the Recruiter with a lot of useful information.
