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

    Constantly moving, revamping and upgrading technology. Stays up to date with common technologies Everyone is great to work with Work/life balance understanding There is a lot of faith in peers and support from upper management to get things moving

    Cons

    Constantly moving. Technology concepts change, but a solution to problems are not discussed only moved Common technology are based on who knows what the best, not necessarily the best tech for the task Work/life balance is understood but graciously asked to be overlooked. Line is very blurred at many times.

    Pros

    Good work life balance Really good learning environment Vast set of experience

    Cons

    You just can't work on a single domain and build your expertise. You have to take work that's in priority and lots of time these are not developer's task

    Company is growing up post-IPO and making good decisions Management seems to be listening and responding to issues Not a lot of red tape for getting things done—opportunity to make an impact and get recognized for it Smart, authentic people to work with—you won’t find many tech bros here It’s a good time to be in the tax industry and Avalara is positioned well Good work/life balance

    Cons

    Cross-team communication and processes are lacking May be trying to do too much at once
