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?

Pros

They treat you like a human and care for you.

Cons

Honestly, there are none. They trust me, I have freedom, no micromanaging, and I can give input and honest feedback on things I think can be done better. I can speak with the VP of sales or CEO

  1. DC Tech Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Sacramento, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview
    Application

    I applied through an employee referral The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Backblaze (Sacramento, CA) in Oct 2022

    Interview

    Interview was very light. They made it feel like more of a general meet and greet. Keeping it non-threatening, polite, personal, and conversational. They asked a one or two technical questions but not in a testing / judge mental manner. They had people in the interview who I would be working with as a team so we were all able to meet each other and get a sense of personality.
