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
    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 week. I interviewed at SendGrid (Denver, CO) in Oct 2019

    Interview

    The fastest process ever. I was contacted by recruiter through linkedin, quick intro call, hackerrank.
    Next day after I passed hackerrank I was invited 4 hours long onsite with 4 people.

    All interviewers were friendly and generally very nice persons to talk with, definitely one of the better experience so far.
    Interview

    1. Hackerrank with easy to medium questions. 2. onsite with design, coding, hiring manager and culture match
