Our Core Values

The foundation of PTC's work culture comes from the following seven core values:


We strive to rise above "good" to be "the best". We believe in having a positive, competitive, optimistic, and realistic approach to everything we do. We hold ourselves to high standards that will truly produce excellence, which makes us a great company.


We have a team spirit that is the essence of our winning organization. No single group is responsible for our success—it is achieved through collaboration, diverse ideas, skills and experiences. We address challenges and opportunities as one team fighting one fight until our customers reach success.

Innovation & Empowerment

We drive to innovate by integrating the needs of our customers, evolving markets, new technology and the expertise of our employees throughout the world. We are empowered to share our thoughts and bring our ideas to the forefront to be heard.


We are diligent in our pursuit of victory. We will do everything we can to win and, when we don't, we learn from it to improve for the future. We drive hard toward developing success in our results.

Integrity & Professionalism

We conduct ourselves in a professional and ethical manner. It means doing what is right, even when no one is looking, and serves as a cornerstone of our present and future success.

Customer Success

We are relentless in enhancing the value proposition for our customers. We are committed to our customers' success and we use it as an indicator of the success of PTC. We declare victory when the customer finds they are getting value from our solutions.

Social Responsibility Through Shared Value

We engage with the communities in which we work and give back to them. We develop and participate in programs that create value for our community and our company.
