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?

Interview

Unprofessional interview process, probably gives insight into how this company is currently run. Recruiting coordinator and recruiter ignored countless follow-ups, would send invites without the interviewer added and then abruptly cancel those invites only to send new invites with the same mistakes present. The recruiter and recruiting coordinator also scheduled interviews for times where availability was not provided.

Interview

4 interviews, on the last interview I found out a deal breaking attribute to the role, the company is 99% Mac. Had they put this on the job posting, or mentioned it in the initial screening I would have never applied. Aside wasting my time the hiring manager, as well as the recruiter were rude and didn't respond to emails asking details of the position. Would not recommend if this is a taste of the companies overall culture and demeanor.

Took a test. Asked about web technologies: cache control headers, HTTP, DNS, coding languages, ticketing systems, past experiences supporting customers. Was quite a long process as they also wanted to know if you were a good fit into their culture and team

Interview

Fastly's HR recruitment team is the best I had ever worked with. I was working with Cameron (a Staff Recruiter) who was my point of contact during the whole process. His replies were immediate, any updates were promptly communicated, and not for a single moment did I feel out of the loop or forgotten about. The rest of the HR team was on point as well. The process: 1. Phone screen 2. Hiring manager interview 3. Technical interview 4. Onsite (Zoom) - 4x "one on one" 1hr interviews Even though I did not receive an offer at the end, the experience was extremely positive. All of the interviewers were very smart, professional, and overall - nice people. Thank you for the consideration Fastly and the best of luck ahead!

Interview

The head hunter asked me many questions including my language skills and then I went to the first interview. However, seems the interviewer didn’t know that I’ve already explained my language skill to the head hunter and they wanted to hire someone native and had experience working in the market. She quickly declined me. It’s a bit waste of my time and roller coaster to me as if they are only looking for native speakers, they could be more clear about it.
