Technical Account Manager

Being a woman in tech, I only recently started advocating for myself at work about advancement opportunities. Because of this I wanted to ask this question to my male counterparts. When you have 1:1's with your direct reports and talk about career growth / aspirations what is your managers’ response typically? I’d like to gauge how my experience (negative) differs from others. For instance are you met with blockades, enthusiasm, dread, etc?

Extremely slick and seamless, utilising a healthy mix of tech and people. Quick and with clear strong communication. Although I met with several team members, colleagues and senior stakeholders, this gave me the opportunity to make a fully informed decision.

I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Cision (New York, NY) in Aug 2022

Interview

Initial communication was swift. Set up interview with first round recruiter and spoke about next steps. Followed up a few days later and received no feedback or follow up. Position is still posted,it would have been nice to receive follow up with a decision instead of ghosting. Perhaps this treatment is indicative of company culture/practices.

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Cision (New York, NY) in Jul 2022

Interview

Filled out the application and then received an email asking for my availability for a phone screening the next day. Was your typical phone screening conversation and then was told the hiring manager was on vacation and I wouldn't hear back on next steps until the end of the week. Never was contacted back with next steps and position seemed to have been taken down so role was probably filled. Probably would help to communicate to candidates when the positions are filled instead of ghosting.

Interview

Expect a rug pul. Applied for a job, realised it paid much less than the market, interviewed for that job, got a LOW ball offer with no negotiations for another lower position job with an even worse schedule. RED flags ontop of RED flags.

Interview Questions
  • tell me about your successes and failures. How do you handle conflict. Very generic... they want bodies, not capabilities.
