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?

-The people who work at Birst really do care for the company -The product is definitely one of the better ones on the market -There is plenty of potential -The next 2 years are a pivotal time for this company as it's really make it or break it. They'll either IPO or sink down
-Since the CEO has started, the company has been taking a more sales first approach which has resulted in overshooting and under delivering numbers to the board- this resulted in a 7% cut of the company in January -The Lead Development team got new management a few months ago. They have been implementing a lot of changes which have not only effected the lead dev team but also the outside sales team. They want robots who will leave behind their own sales methodologies and adopt the new challenger sales method. Changes are implemented one day and results are expected the next day. The outlook on this team is not looking good for at least the next 2 quarters. -No room for growth unless you've been at the company for 2+ years -Company acts like they're corporate when they're still a startup. Morale is really low. Culture is nonexistent. -The founders came from Siebel where it was more corporate and expect everyone to be serious 100% of the time -No training programs when you start. You're expected to come in and just know everything.14

Opportunity is abound here. The Business Intelligence space is a crowded one. Birst stands out above the rest for its customers and employees. Birst offers a fantastic product with a strong value proposition. Very passionate executive management team with a customer first mentality. As a sales executive, sales management is a breath of fresh air. The sales management team will jump down in the trenches with you to help you close the deal. They know the product and the sales strategy inside and out. In short, they add value, not overhead. We have all worked for companies that do not use their own product to run their business. We just hope a prospect will not ask us about how we use the product. Not the case here. Along with my Salesforce login came SSO with Birst Analytics. Always great when you can share with your prospective clients how your own product makes you more effective.
Typical venture backed, high growth company pains. It is difficult to keep up with the growth and change. The bottleneck is always shifting and you have to wear different hats. As much a pro as a con. Exhilarating and exhausting at the same time. You will either love the pace or hate it.
