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?

Where would you move (within the US) if you could move anywhere? And why there? Currently in NY, lease is up soon, working remotely forever. Never lived anywhere else in the US. I love nature, animals..snorkeling, horseback riding, working out gives me life.

ProsCulture is great, but changing quickly as the company moves towards a fully remote work environment. Flexible work arrangements, reimbursement for WFH setups. Managers are supportive (but YMMV).
ConsRemote-first may not appeal to entry-level employees looking for more direct, in-person mentoring.
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 12 months. I interviewed at App Annie (Los Angeles, CA) in Oct 2021
InterviewI had seven interviews, one of which was a one-hour panel presentation I spent 40 hours preparing. I spoke with App Annie about the specifics around compensation, that the hiring manager was confident I was the candidate for the role and that an offer was being drafted. I canceled two other final interviews for equally great positions after being told that everything left was a formality and asked how serious I was about App Annie. The final round turned out not to be a formality, which is understandable. The C-level was not confident I was the right fit. After clarifying the position in my seventh round, I never heard back.
Everyone I interviewed with was extremely professional and easy-going. The questions were not as formulaic as with most product companies. They are looking for a team fit, and your resume speaks for itself. I did not mind the interview process at all. The 1 hour presentation was a bit intense, but I actually thought it prepared me well for the job.Answer Question
