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

I'll start with mentioning I'm biased because I prefer a start-up culture where there are opportunities to take more initiative and have a greater influence over the end product. Motional definitely

Cons

There are some challenges with overlapping responsibilities and roles across teams. Because every team is empowered to take initiative, many times there are multiple teams that end up working on

Advice to Management

Be a little more hands on with the engineering organizations and help them follow a process, and check that every groups roles and responsibilities are clear

    Embedded Software Engineer Intern Interview

    Anonymous Employee in United States
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview
    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Motional (United States) in Dec 2021

    Interview

    I applied directly through their website.
    1 technical interview and 1 virtual onsite.

    Technical interview was quite easy from the algorithm perspective since the position is embedded software.

    Onsite was more focused on system design in my case. I introduced my project experience and they were interested in my current project in university. I talked about my designs as a project owner, explained some design choices, and answered their questions in system design or RTOS etc.

    Received offer in 3-4 days. Compensation was standard intern level.
    Interview

    Technical: implement a common data structure in embedded systems, explain your choices Onsite: introduce your project, explain your design, answer some concept questions in OS and embedded related to the project.
