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 Executive Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Sunnyvale, CA

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview


    Executives missed interview call times not once but multiple times, no clarity in how they plan to execute a turn-around, just typical going thru the motions type questions, six separate senior executive interviews - all but one wasted the call telling me about them (read it on LinkedIN) and how great the company is instead of a real discussion on how I would execute the job, and the worst was no follow-up by HR to provide status on the position - just ghosted. Very big waste of time.

    Tell me about your background, career, how did you get here.
