The latest conversations about Tech




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?

      Very flexible. Work life balance is definitely a priority with Bandwidth - you will never find yourself having to justify why you need to work from home or take PTO (within reason). Benefits are a huge plus for people with families. I love the personal feel of the company - it truly is like coming home to a second family.


      Currently going through what I would term 'growing pains'. Policies are inconsistent and enforced capriciously at times. Getting personal feedback on work development is difficult. Company touts itself as not political, but is VERY political. If you aren't in the right position at the right time and known to the right people, advancing can be extremely difficult.

      Have you ever done interview & just felt the team or company wasn’t sitting well with your gut? How does that factor into your decision if an offer is made? Obv a job interview time is limited so you never know but sometimes I just have a vibe it’s not a match and even though I may keep going in rounds, I’m always checking if I finally get the gut feeling this may be right. I had one where round 1-4 the mood was off. I felt I was being nitpicked harshly always, they rejected me in the end

      For those who are/were in management- At how many years of experience did you get your first job as a manager? How did you make the jump into leadership? For people whose first management role started at a new company, how did you convince them since you had no prior experience in management??
