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?

    Great Company!

    Pros

    Lots of room for growth on a technical scale. Pay is good, benefits are okay (50% of medical aid and a small RA contribution), and the ability to hop between clients when you get bored of the work is a huge plus.

    Cons

    No cons, but be aware that you're pretty much responsible for your own retirement in its entirety. There is a small monthly RA contribution but doesn't match pension benefits other companies would normally provide. However, the pay is good enough to still be able to put away enough money for retirement
