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. Senior Platform Engineer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 week. I interviewed at Prefect (United States) in May 2022


    The recruiter reached out on LinkedIn and had a high-level conversation about my background. Then we moved on to what was supposed to be the hiring manager meeting.

    I had a 30-minute conversation with a Staff-level engineer. He was very kind and seemed excited to be working there. However, he spent most of the time talking about how good the company was and the product. It was rather difficult to get a word in as I didn't want to interrupt. He eventually asked me a high-level question, and I guess my response was not satisfactory so they denied me a couple of days later.
