The War On FAEs (Part 2): New Management Brings Benign Neglect
 

by the OT Club

In part one of this series, we recounted the heyday of the semiconductor FAEs (field applications engineers), which started in the late 60s and lasted into the 90s. During this time, companies treated their FAEs like kings, encouraging and supporting them in all their efforts to assist customers, and valuing their input on market requirements when defining new products. We also contrasted the work conditions for semiconductor FAEs during the good times with those that exist today to highlight how much the role of the FAE has changed. But how and why did the FAE role change so radically? Here in part 2 we attempt to answer that question by discussing the period when companies began to question the value of their FAEs and started cutting back on the support they were given.   Read the full story »
