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?

  1. Customer Success Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Paris
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Algolia (Paris) in Sep 2022


    Very smooth process, with lots of materials to study and get to know the product!

    First step: you meet the recruiter who makes sure your experience is relevant and ask you few questions to ensure you're the right fit with the company's culture
    Second step: the hiring manager gets to know you, asking role specific and behavioural questions
    Third step: meeting with a team of few people, including technical profiles, for a mock call. Prior to this meeting, an assignment needs to be sent,

    Make sure you spend time to prepare the Mock, and specifically spend time to understand the concepts of the product. The platform is not hard to get into as the UX really user friendly, but the actual concepts are more tricky to understand!

    Anyway, after the third step, the hiring manager took the time to explain the concepts in a very clear manner, and provided specific feedbacks which I really appreciated despite the non-offer!

    How do you handle your BoB? What's something you're very proud about?
