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?

"Great job with better people"

May 23, 2016 - Data Scientist
Positive Outlook


Great people, benefits, and projects.


In a space that I, and most young people, don't have a personal interest in (genealogy).

Advice to Management

Both my direct manager and senior management were great to me. However, I think that the company would be much improved if senior management spent more time getting to know the lower level employees.

    Average Interview

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Findmypast (London, England) in Aug 2022


    Everyone I met was super lovely and really knowledgeable of the business and their area of expertise. The length of the process was just right too, with enough time between interviews and flexibility on arranging times.
