The employees had a lot of relative PTC experience as they all come through their "PTC University".
The employees have no real world experience outside of PTC and so have no real view on how to adjust to various situations. Employees get promoted within and not for talent but longevity. It reminds me of a cult..
Advice to Management
You higher people based on their industry expertise but you don't listen to them..be prepared to hear the hard facts and what it will take to change be prepared to change!
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at PTC Therapeutics (South Plainfield, NJ).
At first, I had a quick phone chat with HR manager when I was told about the on-site interview process. It took about a month or so for them to finalize the date/time of the interview. When I got there, I had to talk to a HR director first who was mostly telling me about a company and I kept asking him as many questions as I could. Then, I went on to get interviewed by the hiring manager who asked me about my experience, why I chose their company and whether I still wanted to do my postdoc rather then going to industry. Next part was one hour presentation I had to give talking about my PhD project with an emphasis on skills required for the position. After that, I had about 5-6 30 min interviews with vice presidents, senior directors, scientists from various departments. During one hour lunch break I spoke very informally to my prospective immediate colleagues.
