The latest conversations about Tech




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?

    People are gritty and smart.


    Sometimes company direction can be unclear and the in-person culture is lacking in the US for non-leadership employees.

    1. Senior Analytics Engineer (ASO) Interview

      Negative Experience
      Average Interview

      I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Algolia (United Kingdom) in Aug 2023


      Was it an interview with Algolia or Angola? There was a clear cultural divide between how the USA and Europe performs interviews, and the staff while appearing 'nice' were just going through the motions. Their interview style was so poor that I left all three rounds feeling dejected and poorly interviewed. In all I wasted three hours and that doesn't include typical interview prep. Avoid wasting your time and apply elsewhere.

      The final interview was orientated around an exercise with a director who pretented to want some imaginary data. I was tasked with trying to understand what he wanted. I was told I didn't need to see an example dataset to explore what he wanted, yet I was supposed to pretend to be the subject matter expert. I wonder why I didn't do my best in the interview?
