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.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Fortra (United Kingdom) in Oct 2022


    It was a two-stage interview, and the process was straightforward and considerate of the time-zone difference between the interviewers and me. The interviewers were professional. They started by making me relaxed and calm. The questions were asked in a way that was easy to understand, making it possible for me to express myself clearly.
