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?

    Lion Studios - Solid Place to Learn and Build your Career

    Pros

    Managers are incredibly friendly, and do not micromanage you. You are free to explore & test your ideas, and you get a fantastic view of the ad-tech universe. People here are supportive of trying new things, and will not criticize or condemn you when you fail.

    Cons

    The company can occasionally suffer from being a bit of an echo chamber, where the same idea is iterated on over and over, rather than trying something new.

    Toxicity Galore

    Pros

    Pay is comparable to FAANG companies

    Cons

    Most of the 5 star reviews that you see here are from freshly hired college grads and new employees that are sent Glassdoor review links by their recruiters immediately after joining the company. Now wonder how can someone not give a great review for a company that they just joined. I cannot stress enough how much of a toxic work environment this place is. Your life will change forever and you will never be the same person ever again for the worse. You might even consider getting treatment for issues like stress, low self-esteem, sleep deprivation and depression during and after working here. You will experience these symptoms due to the behavior of your colleagues and managers towards you and the general eerie culture that pervades. People hardly talk to each other and have an apathetic demeanor due to fear of consequences of reacting to anything that might not be considered fine by the higher up's. There is a constant sense of tension and retribution in the air unless you are one of the old timers or a favorite of the old timers. As others have already stated the HR is a joke and only there for face value. The real people in control are the early joiners who are in top leadership roles now. The leadership roles are given to people based on how favorite they are to the early joiners and not based on what value they bring to the company. The early joiners have supreme power and are not corrected for their condescending behavior towards people who came after them or their dubious work ethic. In fact their bad behavior is rewarded as long as they continue to work there. Even if you are a yes woman or man you will face problems in one way or the other with the arrogant people working here and at some point will have to give up. You will eventually get demoralized, lose all motivation and find yourself on the chopping block or leave. Do yourself a favor and do not join this company if you want to stay healthy mentally and not have the joy of life sucked out from within you.

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    - some pretty cool co workers

    Cons

    - expected to work extra hours/weekends/holidays with no recognition - zero transparency about salary ranges and requirements / significant unexplained wage gaps - awful treatment of employees- I have seen more people here having breakdowns from the overwork, crying due to harsh treatment from managers, "quiet quitting" because they just don't care anymore, than anything I've seen before and anything anyone I've talking about this to has seen before - People who speak up are quietly fired - Upper management has said "people who leave work at 6 don't work here very long" despite the employee contract saying it's a 9-6 job. A very fake "healthy work life balance, family culture" face is put on which disappears very quickly. Just be honest - No growth opportunities - Blatant favoritism - HR is a joke

    Pros

    Pay is in line with industry standard.

    Cons

    AppLovin continues to be the most toxic place ive ever worked. From the outside everything seems nice - good pay, persk, friendly people. Inside it's full of toxiicity and no psychologcial safety AT ALL. Get ready to never feel like you're allowed to stop looking at Slack and always feel like your job is at risk. Do not believe positive reviews.

    Pros

    - Culinary Department are top notch. Full cafeteria with multiple food stations, plus mini-kitchens. - Good location. Close to multiple methods of public transit. - Good parking, both top side and sub-level garage.

    Cons

    - Banking on mobile games that copy and paste. - Marketing rules the roost. What they say usually goes, sometimes evens without proper Quality Assurance due process. - Upper level of Project Management is at the root of stagnation in development lifecycles of projects. - Constantly wasting time and resources. Reason? See above.
