Excessive change in strategy and organizational structure
Product Management Director (Former Employee), Needham, MAMay 12, 2015
Good people, good working environment, good business processes and tools in place, good PTO and benefits, fair compensation. The management team has a desire to succeed however the company is constantly changing strategy and acquiring new companies to drive revenue which results in constant organizational change, layoffs and closing of locations.

Cyclic Company that goes through big hires and layoffs regularly - Global Services
Technical Consultant, Global Services (Former Employee), Blaine, MNMay 8, 2015
Pros: Traveling and working from home
Cons: Traveling and working from home
This is all in Global Services.

The program they have in global services to develop consultants is great. The culture and support around is phenomenal. The downside though is there is no job security. People are let go and hired again regularly. There is also a saying that the only way to get a pay bump is to leave PTC and get hired again.

It is a fun place to work, but not stable.

Large company in the midst of a big transition
Product Manager (Current Employee), Austin, TXApril 21, 2015
Pros: Flexible schedule - work from home on Tues and Thurs
Cons: Frequent layoffs to cut costs because the company isn't growing right now
PTC is aiming to enter the market of Internet of Things and as such doing a lot of restructuring to achieve it. This means a lot of change and strategy is not clear for any decent period of time.

I learned that management within PTC is not really very clear on this new path and doesn't seem to give anything long enough to show results before changing it.

A typical day would require meetings with different departments for daily standups, customer calls and triage meetings. I would also create new user stories for the backlog and also manage their position within the backlog.

The hardest part of the job was dealing with cross-continent development teams, most especially with the time differences.

The most enjoyable part was dealing with smart colleagues who would take an idea and run with it. As product manager it was my role to ensure that the product stayed on track in terms of new features but also to ensure that the stability was maintained and improved.

Could Be Worse
Software Development Engineer, Senior (Current Employee), Irvine, CAApril 12, 2015
Pros: flexible hours
Cons: poor compensation, bad managemnent
You have very flexible hours. you can come into the office and leave anytime you want. Problem is there is no room for advancement. Compensation needs improvement.

The Co-workers are great. It is true what they say that you work for each other, and not for management.

I didn't hear this earlier, but PTC is known for acquiring companies and laying off workers.

Essential, if you are not part of IOT, your position will be cut

This involved putting together screen mock ups and working with clients to identify their concerns and desires.

Working from home, My manager was in Germany, a good company to work for.

I think if I was closer to the main office I would have stayed, head office was in Farnbororugh, Hampshire.
