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?

    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Cylance was acquired months before the Covid Pandemic. I was allowed to work from home and was kept on during this difficult time. BB supported me regardless of the obvious reduction in work load for a building and security manager. Layoffs did not happen to my knowledge during the Covid Pandemic

    Cons

    Culturally they are a little lacking.
