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 Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Bangalore
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview
    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Wind River (Bangalore) in Sep 2022

    Interview

    This was the first HR screening round. He asked about my prior experience and then kept nagging about what my expected salary was and what my previous salary was. He was very persistent, and when I told him a number, he said he'd ask the tech manager and then ghosted me. Remember this: NEVER reveal the past or expected salary to them. The salary is to be decided after the interviews. Either that, or they are supposed to tell you the salary range they can offer. The number should NEVER be specified by you.
