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?
What are your colleagues talking about?
"The best company I've ever worked for"
ProsTransparent culture and autonomy in your work
ConsIt can be tough to change roles within the company

Marketer InterviewAnonymous Employee in Phoenix, AZNo OfferNegative ExperienceAverage InterviewApplication
I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at ConvertKit (Phoenix, AZ) in Jul 2022
InterviewOverall the process was quite unprofessional/slow.
I had an initial screener with the hiring manager who asked your typical screening questions, then went over their culture and the hiring process. He was generally friendly, seemed engaged and described the process well.
Process was set in 4 stages.
Stage 1 - Screener/initial interview with hiring manager. (30 minutes)
Stage 2 - Two hour 'take-home' technical exercise on your approach to a lifecycle process and an opening email introducing said process.
Stage 3 - Review of exercise with one to two team members.
Stage 4 - Final interview with several team members to determine if you'd be a culture fit, etc.
I had the first interview early in week 1 and was given the assignment that Friday with it due the following Monday; the assignment, (in my opinion) was quite straightforward, although a bit vague. While they state to take no more than 2 hours, the instructions don't really give you much guidelines. (I stayed under the 2 hour suggested time, but could've been much more comprehensive; I avoided over thinking it and spending too much time as I assumed we would discuss my process/elaborate)
I reached out early afternoon directly to the hiring manager on the following Thursday (after not receiving any response) and received a message shortly after that "follow up emails would be sent EOD Friday..." well Friday came and went and I received nothing. Literally just ghosted after receiving confirmation that I would hear back.
I reached out for a final time Tuesday of the next week, (so at this point it had been 3 weeks) basically saying I appreciated the opportunity and assumed they weren't moving forward. I received a generic automated message that they weren't moving forward, without any other explanation.
All in all, not a bad experience, but I do feel like it was a tad unprofessional to not only ghost, but leave it open that I'd potentially receive an invite to review.
I understand if competition is steep, but I think they owe it to candidates who complete their assessments at least a curtesy decline, rather than dragging them along unknowing.Interview
