    Pros

    My managers were very flexible about what time I came in every morning and left, as long as I worked 40 hours throughout the week. The internship program was very well structured and we always had projects to work on. The program seemed to be as much about teaching the interns and giving them good experience as it was about getting some extra work for the company. The coworkers, including managers, often went out for lunch and were generally very easy to get along with. There were always multiple projects going on and they were willing to give help in how to manage them.

    Cons

    Although there were frequent meetings and chances to work with other people, most time was spent in the cubicle. This, combined with the extremely long commute (, traffic on the surrounding interstates goes at a slow crawl,) made the job seem very boring.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up, I felt very comfortable working there and asking questions. If anything, they were too friendly and had I wanted to, I could have done a lot less work and gotten away with it.

    Pros

    PTC is the best in class company in a multi billlion dollar industry. There are plenty of career advancement opportunities and it seems as though there are plenty of employees that work at PTC for a very long time.

    Cons

    There aren't many downsides to working at PTC. One thing that you run into at a big company though is that sometimes it seems like the different departments are a bit disjointed on their goals.

    Advice to Management

    My experience with management has been very positive so far. They give you a lot of guidance for how you will become successful at PTC

    Pros

    PTC at the time was growing and everyone was working hard to see the company grow. We were rewarded with stock options.

    Cons

    When difficult times came to PTC then it became unbearable to work there. Very political. No bonus. Lay offs. Upper management only worried about the stock and not the employees. Afgter that you can see it was all about the money and not you.

    Advice to Management

    If you take care of your people they will in turn work harder to make the company successful again. Stop worry about the stock.
