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?

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at WatchGuard Technologies (Seattle, WA) in May 2018

    Interview

    Online Assessment, Phone Screen, and In-person or remote interview.

    Moderate difficulty questions in a very laid-back atmosphere, but you'd still need to dress up to impress. Prepare to troubleshoot networking scenarios and describe each step clearly.
