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?

    Pros

    Good place to work if you are just starting out of college. If your prove good work, management will in trust more responsibilities to you. Relatively easy going environment, not a lot of pressure outbreaks on of projects are completed as expected.

    Cons

    Low pay. Management doesn’t offer much in terms of career growth and planning. Management really doesn’t seem to know what they are doing or inspire a lot of confidence in employees as far as vision and direction of the company. It feels like a place where talent gets wasted. Employees get comfortable and so the feeling of new challenges and growth disappear.

    Poor Management - No Vision

    Pros

    You can maintain a decent work life balance.

    Cons

    During my time, the company lacked clear vision or direction. Departments didn't work well together as teams. It seemed there was more in-fighting and politics and they way you got ahead was being in the boy's club. Low pay, and management creates delusional sense of advancement. Total sales culture.

    Sales Development Rep

    Pros

    It was a fun group of employees and the company had a solid product. The job was low-stress. The company had fun outings and events.

    Cons

    No career path for Sales Development. Very hard to transition into another role. Management team was hit or miss. Some managers in certain departments were great while others were miserable. Because a huge amount of employees sat together in the same room, it was at times a very intimidating work environment and extremely competitive.

    Pros

    A regular paycheck. Casual attire. A job title.

    Cons

    If you take a job with Actuate (and, from what I understand, the following will apply to all other OpenText logos as well), do it for the right reasons. Make it a short-term move intended to improve your income and job title. Stay no longer than necessary - as soon as you are ready to advance your career, start looking for that next job again. For entry-level folks: Go for it! Just don't drink their Kool-Aid. OpenText is the WalMart of software. However, since their goal is to hire college grads only, the entry level wages aren't too bad. Get a year or two of experience in the industry and then move on.
