I have been working at PTC full-time (more than an year)

Pros

There are lots of very dedicated employees who want to do the right thing.

Cons

Absolute lack of process.
Decisions are made without data. Definitely no single source of truth.
Executive leadership is in constant battle with one another. Absolute lack of uniformity or control.
Reactionary.
Manipulates customers into sales agreements.
No career planning. There are people who've worked the same job for 20 years!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You're not always right. Start listening.
Demand data. Financial analysis, customer surveys, competitive research...
Have ONE single source of truth.
Stop letting your managers manipulate their own numbers. Have an independent group perform the analysis.
Stop hiring family. Regardless of their ability, it just looks bad.
Don't give yourselves another bonus when you've cancelled everyone else's.
