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?

I have never worked somewhere that values your feedback more (reasonably). It is still a business and has to function as a business, but I have never, even at my worst times, felt unsupported of my goals. I am always helped and supported halfway while empowering me to make my own growth as well. I also think that they are very fair about promotions and are realistic about who can handle the roles they are being hired for.
Only downside is sometimes change happens slowly, but it always is happening and is communicated. Things are never sprung on anyone and often management is so worried on pleasing everyone instead of just making the decision and dealing with backlash after. It’s nice still to know thatContinue reading

Lots of working knowledge and good community of people
Communication can get mixed up sometimes

The company leadership thinks strategically and works had to build a positive company culture. Alarm.com is a leader in the market and puts an emphasis on innovative new products.
Maintaining communication with the various remote offices was a challenge at times

alright for a first job. pretty easy going till the manager decides otherwise at random.
3 strikes - bad code base, bad documentation, bad pay. don’t realize all this till you move out.Continue reading
- Current Employee, more than 3 years★★★★★Dec 6, 2022 - Localization EngineerRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
I have never worked with such a talented, passionate team. Every team/dept experience will be different, but my personal experience with the Localization team has been exceptional. I’ve been able to implement improvements, etc. without friction, and have a team of experts to help in every step of the way. I’ve never been so appreciated and rewarded for my accomplishments, never felt so supported in my professional efforts as with ADC. This company is emotionally aware, and it benefits everyone because we all work differently.
Your mileage will vary, but you will have to be open to open to dealing with imperfect processes (and possible lack of documentation) and possible hangups in inter-dept communication. This is because the company is continuing to grow and pivot. You’ll need to take initiative a lot of the time to address any issues.Continue reading

Great company culture in a major tech hubs.
Certain teams carry the company while others coast.
- Former Employee, more than 5 years★★★★★Nov 8, 2022 - Product ManagementRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
The people are incredibly intelligent and great to work with. It’s overall got a startup vibe and there’s plenty of opportunities to get your feet wet with multiple and various projects. I really liked seeing sick days become wellness days and the retroactive paternity leave.
Compensation is overall low and there’s not much room for growth. Middle managers don’t actually manage you to grow, they manage their work and yours and don’t have the time for anything else. Work/life balance depends on how often and assertive you can set boundaries and manage up. This job is like your first car. Use it to learn to drive. Once you know how, get a better one.Continue reading
