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


    Ability to have impact, flexibility, competitive compensation, exciting technology, growth oriented mindset personally and professionally. Great company culture- Work hard play hard.


    Can’t think of anything that’s super terrible or not common at other companies of similar age and size. Bureaucracy is much less of a problem than it was 3-5 years ago.

    Keep the transformation rolling!

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at PTC (Uniontown, PA) in December 2016.


    Started with a phone screening to ask general programming knowledge. After that was successful, I was scheduled for a face to face interview two days later. During the interview I went through a series of programming/problem solving challenges, and then discussed more of the business side of things with an additional critical thinking challenge with a second interviewer, and then interviewed with a third person about the company and my background. Offered a position 2 hours after the face to face interview.
