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. Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Bethlehem, PA

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Wikimedia Foundation (Bethlehem, PA)


    I was given an interview after communicating by unconventional means. I appreciated the opportunity and was treated well in the process. I didn't end up getting the job (which I believe was the appropriate choice by the hiring manager), but I had a good experience with management and the interview team. I was treated with respect and consideration.

    The main step in the interview was a "take-home test" that involved creating a website. It was a fair test.
