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?

    Terrible acquisition handling

    Pros

    Mostly nice co-workers, interesting and informative all-hands meetings.

    Cons

    The way they handled being acquired by AT&T was atrocious! Many people were laid off which led to a re-organization that was handled in a way that put managers in an unclear position. This had a major trickle-down affect made that made employees at all levels of the organization suffer due to uncertainty, confusion and horrible communication all around. This constant fear of uncertainty led to a completely toxic workplace which was really sad considering AppNexus was a great place to work before the acquisition.
