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?

    Straight-forward process. Everyone was amazing to speak with from the very first conversation. Spoke with TA, who setup call with hiring manager, AVP, SE and an overall product presentation to wrap things up.

    Pretty standard AE questions around processes, breaking into net new accounts, etc.
