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?

    Easy Interview

    I applied online. I interviewed at Paychex (Tampa, FL)


    This was a complex time consuming waste of my time. Several interviews then silence. After taking someone’s valuable time you should at least, as a courtesy, tell them you are no longer interested in them instead of not responding to their phone calls and emails.

    They asked about job history and skills, but also asked by hypothetical situation based questions.
