Comment:
By far, Mr. T taught me everything I needed to know once I graduated from college and worked at a startup with a team of 3. He may have long lectures, he may be a tough grader, but I guarantee that what he teaches will actually stick with you and be meaningful in the workplace - don't worry about the grade in this class as much as what he teaches.

Comment:
This is the worst class Ive taken in the Marketing department at TCU. Every day, Mr. T would tell us to research something on wikipedia and write a paper about it, due at the end of class. There were no lectures. There was no textbook. There was no learning. Just frustration, arbitrary grades, and busy work. Id avoid taking this class if I could.

Comment:
He is without question the worst professor you could take in the Marketing Department. No instruction, no lecture, does not follow any syllabus. He creates a toxic, competitive classroom environment by pinning groups against each other. Provides horrible feedback, belittling effort on assignments that have no direction and humiliating questions.

He is very knowledgable and interesting! Also a sweet guy and will help you whenever needed. Only reason I didn't give him a perfect rating is because you don't know how you're doing in the class until the last week of the semester! Exams and project are time consuming and a little difficult, but I really enjoyed having him as a professor.

He's an old school, no nonsense type of teacher. He's all about the real world, so most of the discussions and leactures are based around that. He likes assertive students who take initiative, so participate in class and visit him during office hours. He helped land me my first internship. Take it and be better prepared for life post college.

Thompson is by far the best teacher I have had at TCU. I learned more from him then all of my other teachers combined. Everyone business student shoud take him at least once because if you don't you wont be prepared for the business world when you graduate. His class is not easy, but it is worth it to put in extra effort because you learn so much

Thompson is a great teacher. Probably the best I had at TCU. He really wants to help you learn, and wants you to be ready when its time to get a job. Great guy, really nice. Will help you any way he can if you just ask. Really knows what hes talking about. His classes arent the easiest but you learn a lot.

great teacher... learned more in his class than any other class in the business school so far. Don't plan on getting an A, and don't worry about your grade, you will be ok if you interact and talk with him. If you take this class you will learn a ton... its well worth your while!

Thompson is a good guy and wants to help you understand marketing. He makes himself availible outside class and goes beyond his responsibilities to help students get jobs. He is a great resource to get to know and use in the future.

T is great! His tests are hard and there is no way to study for them. You have to go to class, but the stuff he gives you really does help in the "real world" of marketing. Go talk to him after class. Doesn't really give A's but if you do well on your project and your group gives you a good review you'll get a B. I would take him again if I could

Don't stress out about this class because your grades are probably figured out the first day of class. You will do well if you work hard on the projects, add to class discussions, and visit Mr. T in his office. He is very helpful for future jobs and a great, NICE guy.

"Mr T" is awesome! His class can be a bit overwhelming at times, but very interesting lectures. Clear that the man knows marketing and will share info that will benefit you once out of TCU. Truly cares about us students. One of the best. Take him, but be prepared to put in a bit of time for studies

The BEST professor at TCU. He's a no-nonsense kind of guy. Intimidating at first, but very knowledgable about the business world. He has been at TCU forever and lots of people have taken him several times. If you are a business major, TAKE Thompson!

If he doesnt like you from day one, for whatever reason, run for your life. If he likes you, your fine. projects are intense and good luck ever having a clue of knowing your grade throughout the semester.

Mr. T definitely cares about the future of his students. While attendence is mandatory and the projects are a bit intense, what you learn really matters. I defnitely think you are getting your TCU money's worth.
