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

    If you are willing to grind and work extra hours, you may be able to climb the ladder quickly. They have fun start up perks in the office which was a fun plus.

    Cons

    During COVID, they laid about 20 of us off on a group zoom call with no explanation or empathy. They explicitly told us on the call that they had no intention to hire any of us back once they recover from COVID times. This company does not show empathy or value towards their employees.

    Instability and Inexperience

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Somewhere to launch your career and grow into a role so you can take your skill set somewhere else. Lots of opportunity to learn, shine, and make an impact if you're self motivated, but few opportunities for mentorship.

    Cons

    Bleeding technical staff, lacks focus and vision. Very few people with deep rooted knowledge around the energy space involved in product design or decision making. Sales constantly pushes product features that simply don't exist, causing everyone to always be operating at break neck pace, and make unsustainable decisions. Abuses interns across orgs by keeping them on for years at a time acting in full time capacities. Fake promotions to get people to act in capacities higher than their pay grade are frequently given... i.e. more stress and responsibility without any increase in pay or change in official title. If you aren't upper leadership, prepare yourself to be paid below market rates. Desperate to keep up with competition without any research, legwork, security, or resources. Innovation is long gone. Hostile takeover by board with over inflated egos and inability to listen to employees. Very, very immature company and product in desperate need of experienced staff, clear direction, and capable leadership.

    Fantastic team, product, and culture!

    Pros

    Aquicore is a great place to learn and become a functional expert in your domain. The culture here fosters ownership and development like no other. Hard work and commitment is recognized and rewarded, and there is space for open dialogue with leadership. No problem is too big or too small for Aquicore, and the team brings an equal amount of drive to solving issues that are big, small and everything in between. The mission to create global impact certainly echoes through the walls of Aquicore, and is the north star for any new initiative. The team is an incredibly talented group of people who care, and inspire others around them every day.

    Cons

    Like any startup, Aquicore has growing pains, but nothing that can't be solved by rolling up our sleeves and focusing on the solution rather than the problem.

    A company with heart that does not always get it right but certainly tries

    Pros

    Working for a company that has a mission larger than itself, its executives, its customers, and its investors is unique and satisfying. Taking the form of a typical SaaS enterprise sale, Aquicore is uniquely always finding its footing trying to balance true global impact, competitive growth, external funding, and employee satisfaction. In the wake of difficult decisions, it feels like decisions are well thought out with intention and heart. From my perspective, the company tries to share all it can with everyone at the table. Every day I feel like I am clocking-in to create, protect, and grow something personal to me.

    Cons

    Aquicore has not always been a smooth ride (Funding, vision, customers, etc.). It is not a unicorn from Silicon Valley - it's gritty at times and you get some calluses. If changing the world came easy, everyone would be doing it.

    Grow and contribute in an exciting field

    Pros

    - Incredibly talented colleagues. I'm constantly learning and growing here, and I'm inspired to give my best. If you're looking to just analyze data, or just write front-end code, or just be back-end, you'll be disappointed. You frequently need to roll up your sleeves and tackle issues from different angles. For data science, that means a healthy blend of solid statistical knowledge, programming, the ins and outs of AWS, and how your work fits into the broader product. - Your work has immediate impact. You're given responsibility from the start, and you have the ability to make meaningful change in the company and the product immediately. - Fun culture. Everyone respects each other, and our weekly all-hands meetings bring home the message that we're a team working together on an exciting product. There's also a Switch to play after-hours, which doesn't hurt. - Wake up knowing your work is helping reduce carbon emissions - Free catered lunch Mondays and Wednesdays, monthly happy hours, gym, roof with a great view of downtown

    Cons

    - Some might not like the range of work - No 401k match
