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?

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

As others have said, *generally* the worklife balance is good. People also tend to be very friendly and if you value socialization with your coworkers there are a lot of opportunities to get that here outside of work.
Your career progression is going to be almost 100% determined by how long you've been here. As stated by others, compensation is already low compared to other opportunities in the area. If you've got the misfortune of being on a more demanding team/project, you'll enjoy the misfortune of an Amazon like work life balance while bringing home half as much. You won't be compensated any better. It won't contribute to you being promoted faster. My advice in these cases is to ignore the additional asks, push back, it gets done when it gets done.Continue reading
- Former Employee, more than 1 year★★★★★Oct 11, 2022 - Supply Chain Planner in McLean, VARecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Alarm was an absolute pleasure to work for and it all boils down to management. The supply chain team's managers demonstrated trust and confidence in their employees. They advocated for us, helped us when needed, and would always find the time to make sure we were able to meet our professional and personal goals. More broadly, the company was responsive to suggestions for improvement and really went out of its way to make sure everyone had a voice. I honestly don't care much about home electronics, but the genuine team culture at Alarm made me care about doing a good job.
Operationally the company stands to improve. The departments are siloed, making it challenging to ensure communications are reaching the correct stakeholders. Additionally, until recently there has been zero focus on sustainability.
- Former Employee, more than 3 years★★★★★Jul 12, 2022 - Software Engineer in Tysons Corner, VARecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
- Fantastic WLB, hard deadlines are extremely rare - People are pleasant and easy to work with - Good place for a first job. The company is good at onboarding fresh graduates and the pay for a new grad is competitive - Office has a cool / fun design - Products are pretty cool with home automation devices - Business model is stable - Job security is very high
- Execs are forcing return to office (RTO). Mandatory 3 days/week. Talent is leaving rapidly due to this. - Engineering can't hold on to senior employees due to compensation and RTO - Compensation becomes extremely uncompetitive after you reach mid level - Technologies used are often outdated and/or niche. I don't know any serious tech company that uses Ember.js as their primary frontend - No real incentive to work hard or pursue upward trajectory. Promotions seem to be mostly based on seniority. You'll get a better return on your effort by studying for interviews and leaving rather than working for a promoContinue reading

-Alarm is a great place to start your career, and build experience. I made several lifetime friends working there. -Medical being 100% covered for the employee is great -Flat org means not a lot of middle management to get in the way, decisions can be made quickly in relation to other companies of this size
-Mid/senior career salaries are well below average -Former microstrategy in all leadership. If you get a new person on your team that is from microstrategy, they will most likely get promoted ahead of you. -Flat org also means not a whole lot of room to grow in your career -Forcing people to come back to the office 3 days a week even though productivity didnt suffer.Continue reading
