PTC – Why Work For Us?

PTC has the most robust Internet of Things technology in the world. In 1986 we revolutionized digital 3D design, and in 1998 we were first to market with Internet-based PLM. Now our leading IoT and AR platform and field-proven solutions bring together the physical and digital worlds to reinvent the way you create, manufacture, operate, and service products. With PTC, global manufacturers and an ecosystem of partners and developers can capitalize on the promise of the IoT today and drive the future of innovation.

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


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.


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.


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.

    I have been working at PTC full-time (More than 3 years)


    Leading innovative products, talented employees who can make a difference and are rewarded for it, a collaborative culture, an executive team that are all rowing in the same direction all make PTC a great place to work, especially if you pride yourself in making a difference and achieving great things. People are friendly, very smart, and want to make a difference. Friday social hours, employee resource groups, change-maker recognition, and stock grant to all employees demonstrate a focus on the importance of our people, who make everything possible.


    PTC wants to drive positive change, and while the company emphasizes and rewards this, there are still pockets of resistance, which is probably to be expected in a 30-year old company. Some people have been at PTC so long, that while they have great historical, institutional knowledge, they don't have much perspective on how others outside are solving problems today.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to move fast to win in IoT and to complete the business model move to subscription. Recognize and reward the employees (at all levels) who are driving the transformation.

    Average Interview


    I applied online. I interviewed at PTC (Boston, MA).


    I applied through LinkedIn and they contacted me within a week. My first interaction was with the recruiter. We had a brief conversation on the phone about the position and my skill set. The second step was a phone interview with the specific department. I asked a question she wasn't familiarized with and she told me the recruiter was going to contact me with that information. I never heard from them again. I decided to follow up, but did not receive an answer. Made me think it was about my immigration status and not my actual qualifications.
