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

I applied for 2022 Intern Software Engineer, ML Platform at NEON team. The job description mentioned ML-related concepts such as model hyperparameters tuning and experience in building and maintaining machine learning models. Also, HR said the focus would be on ML concepts. However, the interviewer started by asking between C++ and python, followed by multi-threading and software concepts followed by the coding question. And only 5 minutes of ML concepts in the end. The title of this position is misleading. This position is for core software developers with little or no Experience in ML and not for ML engineers. Please don't waste time here if you are looking for ML interns. Based on my experience, I don't think their teams know what exactly they are looking for.

Interview Questions
  • What is the difference between Python and C++ when allocating memory for a list?

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Samsung Research America (Mountain View, CA)

Interview

Recruiter contacted me and informed about the interview. A disinterested interviewer who is not related to the team or role you applied for comes to interview you. He has no interest in knowing about you or the work you did. The recruiter says to expect an interview that checks your knowledge on QA and other concepts related to automation. But the disinterested interviewer comes and gives you a link to codility test and does nothing. He is not interested to listen to the logic, he just wants the code to run and give results. It is a leetcode medium question. Obviously , there is no communication between the recruiter and the people who are interviewing. If they just wanted a test to run and give results, why waste time? They could send the test online and filter people.

Interview

Average interview, but unprofessional interviewer! Out of 4 interviewers during virtual onsite, one was very nice, 2 were okayish, and one was VERY unprofessional (he kinda shouted at me). In fact, after that bad interviewer round, I was sure that I would be denying the offer and I denied. Samsung really needs to train their interviewers. Not only they are giving time, but we do also take out time for the almost whole day interviews.
