    An American tech giant crumbling in the hands of sales-heavy executives.

    Manager (Former Employee) Dallas, TX

    ProsLow cost of living in Dallas. Work-life balance. Flexible hours.

    ConsTI's business principle is to avoid competition. If it's already late in a market, it is happy to stay out and never join the party. If it is already in but others start showing up, it happily drops the ball, drives the business to the ground and leaves it all behind. Basically, TI chooses not to compete (let's not get into why). This mode of operation is most disturbing for the technically talented. You might be very good at what you do and strive to stay on top of your trade, but you know that it is only a matter of time before TI will leave your area, selling out entire businesses or shutting them down. It is not a question of if, but a question of when. Most recent victims are a bunch of digital businesses.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI am really really sorry, but you are running a technology company, so it's about time technical teams help you put together a strategy. This will surely turn out better than current mode of operation (no vision, no strategy, no roadmap). This will catch up with you sooner or later. Top executive ranks are all from sales; you cannot innovate your way in technology with a top-down hard-core sales mentality driving everything in the company.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
