Growth | Training | Performance Management | Other Benefits
The global village is here. We live in a world where epochal developments are transforming everyday life.
What was unheard of yesterday is becoming common-place today
There are a handful of multinationals in India who are spearheading this change. Texas Instruments is one of them. TI India offers tremendous scope for career advancement. For candidates with initiative, talent, integrity, innovative spirit and flexibility.
It is not just what you have done and what you know that TI India looks for, but who you are, how you think and what you are able to do, which are just as important.
At TI India we recognize the intensity of individual aspirations and the organization's role in ensuring a supportive work environment that encourages TII'ers to live their dreams.
Growth can happen in two trajectories – you can either choose to grow on a managerial path or deep dive into technical domains. The organizational hierarchy is essentially flat with roles and job positions that permit appropriate levels of autonomy and responsibility in a challenging workplace.
Growing to be a manager
New entrants have an option of embarking on a career that begins at an engineering/developer position and moves on to roles of greater tech complexity. This foundation-building in turn grooms the individual for future roles and prepares him/her for a leadership role – from leading a team at a tactical level to managing a project to roles that require more strategic and holistic management of an entire vertical organization.
The technical ladder
For the deep-dive techies, the technical ladder at TI India is not just unique in its conception and implementation but is a powerful endorsement of the organization's intent of rewarding and recognizing visionary technical leadership.
The technical ladder has levels that parallel the management ladder. Its role is to grow shareholder value through exceptional market-leading technical contributions and develop top technical talent for TI. The unique election process through councils and committees, well-outlined parameters for evaluation and a clear hierarchy of job titles is proof of TI India's commitment to the technical ladder. This ladder provides employees not just any alternate career path but one that meets and surpasses an individual's career expectations in terms of technical growth and recognition.
The rigors of the selection process not withstanding, employees are recognized not just through job titles or formal organizational announcements, awards and compensation; but by supporting them with a mentoring and development process, encouragement and participation in various technical forums as well as the most potent of them all–peer recognition!
Experienced hires are also encouraged through a unique New Hire Technical Ladder Election process where the focus is to evaluate an applicant's past technical contribution and his / her roles on technical ladders in previous organizations, which serve as recognition of previous technical achievements. A champion who ensures the integrity of the process by comparing the new hire candidate with current technical ladder peers and plays the role of guiding the new hire candidate through the rigorous process is identified. On successful completion, the new hire is inducted into the appropriate levels into the TI India technical ladder!
Whichever career path you choose, TI India supports you with the conviction that you know what's best for you and encourages you to ensure that every step you take impacts business positively and contributes to organization growth and leadership.
