Cons

Salary below market.
Continual reorganization of upper/senior management and business units.
Reactionary policies to market and economic trends.

Globally diverse teams creates small windows to allow for 1-1 communication.
Continually changing company vision and re-branding creating confusion.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be less reactionary to economic conditions and more proactive and conservative in approach. This has gotten better with the new CEO but is still apparent. Similarly, senior management needs to be less concerned about shareholder value and more concerned about employee satisfaction.

    Pros

    Interesting work. Pay seems to be similar or better than similar positions elsewhere in the software industry. Many people aren't terrible.

    Cons

    There are the standard quarterly financial pressures that impact work, causing direction to suddenly change and causing people to worry every three months.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve communications with the employees, realizing that their goals may be more practical than the corporate goals while still supporting and not conflicting with the corporate goals.

    Pros

    I've gotten to use a lot of different tools not talked about in school. I was given the freedom to choose what type of work I wanted to do.

    Cons

    In my experience, it's been that you are confined to your team. As a whole, PTC seems a little reluctant to move forward with new technologies.
