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?

    Total fail.

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    They knew how to hire. Despite rampant mismanagement at the top, Bloomspot had assembled a ground-level team of exceptional individuals who bonded easily and worked well together. i wasn't there long, but I made several lifelong friendships there - everybody did.

    Cons

    Literally everything else. The work/life balance was appalling, management often behaved inappropriately, and even at a distance (i was a Creative there) it was obvious that the founders were totally delusional about money, resources, and their own product.

    Great place to work when things were great. Had multiple rounds of layoffs so it was not fun then.

    Pros

    always attracted very talented people. great location. good food. what was great about this place is that it was fantastic to work during the good days when people were not being laid off.

    Cons

    no new ideas. just copying other companies to try to make money will only take you so far. multiple rounds of layoffs certainly didn't help.

    Fun company at one point, but always chaotic

    Pros

    There were definitely good moments at Bloomspot. The people were always great; hard-working, motivated, intelligent. During the peak times, it was a fun although exhausting experience. I learned more in those few months than I ever had.

    Cons

    Ultimately, it wasn't to be. The industry as a whole is dying, and there was no difference there. Leadership was never the best, and often made shortsighted decisions that would hurt in the long term. However, it ultimately would not have mattered.

    Great People, Company had wrong priorities

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    The people are great. Flexible hours, some catered food. Overall the company has a good "feel" and culture. The company is small enough to get access to the high-level executives.

    Cons

    Way too much prioritization of the "short-term". The company constantly focuses to hit THIS month's numbers without any regard to next month. Sales compensation structure often doesn't coincide with the company's ultimate goals. Tech resources & capabilities are way behind industry-standard.
