    Pros

    PTC is going thru a cultural shift. Things are changing quickly at the company and employees are empowered to come up with new ideas and new ways of doing things. All jobs are highly visible at the company and you can make an impact at any level. It's not the type of place where you'll be bored. You will be challenged.

    Cons

    The environment is not for everyone. If you can't deal with change and some ambiguity it's not for you. You will work hard. You have to go outside your comfort zone, you have to raise your hand for projects. If you come up with an idea, it's yours to execute.

    Advice to Management

    Keep listening to new ideas from your employees. Keep adding new perks and benefits as you have been doing the last few years.

    I worked at PTC full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are OK. They support working remotely.

    Cons

    All management and decisions revolve around the CEO. Hundreds of millions of dollars invested in IoT, but not much to show for it. Meanwhile, the CAD business is under increasing pressure for more sales with less people.

    Advice to Management

    There is more to building a business than acquiring shiny objects. It may be working short term to keep the share price high, but it can't last forever.

    Cons

    Changes direction to often. Needs to stick to a plan
