Pros

Good business model, decent pay, lots of cross-team cooperation, good IT support, senior management is tech-savvy, colleagues are generally smart and helpful.

Cons

Limited recognition, R&D slowly shifting to offshore teams, slow release cycles, salary freeze for 3 years (resumed 2/2011), Windchill user interfaces are starting to improve but workflows and features are bewildering.

    "Extremely Disorganized and Politically Driven Management"

    Doesn't Recommend

    Pros

    Salary is on the higher side for MA. Benefits package is also good. Large customer base (although not growing) means some stability

    Cons

    Poor management, highly political, locker room mentality, no attention to work/life balance, no focus on employee growth, management actually takes pride in PTC being a "brutal place to work" (actual quote from a marketing VP)

    Advice to Management

    Get some help from outside. Too much internal back-slapping and promotion throughout the higher ranks. Employees are consistently dissatisfied and unhappy, and upper management perpetuates the issue with questionable promotions that are not based on leadership skills.
