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?

InterviewThe application process at Automattic consists of several steps: an initial application, follow-up responses, a small WordPress plugin project, and a trial period. The trial is promoted as a collaborative experience representative of full-time employment at Automattic. However, my experience was different. The trial lead tended to question my decisions but didn't offer constructive feedback. His responses were often terse or noncommittal like "ok, fine" or "sounds good, thanks". A particular issue was when he approved a PR I submitted, then later cited that same PR as a reason for my rejection. The trial period was a disappointment for me, and I don't believe it accurately represented what working at Automattic is truly like.Interview
