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?

    1. Solution Engineer Interview

      Anonymous Employee in Sydney
      No Offer
      Negative Experience
      Average Interview

      I applied online. The process took 5 months. I interviewed at Fortra (Sydney)


      Terrible communication, got ghosted after 5 interview rounds including providing a demo and meeting with APAC SVP. Heard nothing for 2 months then got a generic email template rejection that would have been suited to someone who didn't interview at all.

      Provide a 10-20 min demo/presentation on a technical topic related to the role.
