BOSTON – November 19, 2019 – PTC (NASDAQ: PTC) today announced that The Boston Globe named the company to its annual “Top Places to Work in Massachusetts” list for the third consecutive year. Onshape, developer of the Onshape® Software as a Service (SaaS) product development platform, which was acquired by PTC in early November 2019, also made its debut on the list.
The “Top Places to Work” list recognizes the most admired workplaces in the state, as voted on by the people who know them best—their employees. The survey measures employees’ opinions about their respective company’s direction, execution, connection, management, work, pay and benefits, and engagement. Companies are placed into one of four groups, based on their number of employees in Massachusetts: Small, for employers with 50 to 99 employees; Medium, for 100 to 249; Large, for 250 to 999; and Largest, for companies with 1,000 or more employees based in Massachusetts. In its inaugural appearance this year, Onshape ranks #5 in the “Small” category.
“We are immensely pleased to receive this honor again from The Boston Globe,” said Jim Heppelmann, president and CEO, PTC. “It has been a monumental year for the PTC team, with major milestones including the relocation of our global headquarters to Boston’s Seaport Innovation District and our welcoming of fellow ‘Top Places to Work’ company Onshape to the PTC team. Our culture drives our innovation and employee life, and I am confident that with such a strong, talented, and engaged team, we will not only continue to develop industry-changing technologies but will do so as an organization that champions employee life.”

The company prides itself on searching for new thinkers that display both brains and passion, with employees at every level receiving encouragement and recognition for “taking a fresh look” at the work they do daily.
