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?

    Not the worst but wouldn’t recommend this job to individuals looking to move quickly. Basic grunt work. Interview was very intense for job requirements, and a lot is expected with not much given. Also pay is below minimum
