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?

    Good old boy club kinda place

    Aug 18, 2022 - Digital Solutions Consultant 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    There was not much micromanaging

    Cons

    Company doesn't quite know what it's doing. They hire kids right out of college with no experience as DSCs, but there is no real definition of what they actually do. As a DSC, you are basically a scrum master, product owner, and consultant all at once. This is important to know because if you don't know this, they will drastically underpay you . You don't work directly with management, so they just take the word of whoever has their ear most of the time. If a coworker complains enough about you, even if it's untrue, you'll be reprimanded which creates a very unfriendly and uncooperative work environment if you're not the kind of person that runs to a supervisor everytime you have the slightest problem. The turn over rate is very high and they purposely change the bonus structure every year to keep from paying out bonuses to their employees.

    Decent work if you can handle it.

    Aug 5, 2022 - Front End Web Developer 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Decent compensation if you fight for it. Good projects if you're lucky to be placed on a good project; good work/life balance if you prioritize it.

    Cons

    Projects can feel mismanaged and chaotic. Sometimes projects are billed, ground-broken, and scoped without any developer input or developer resources available to do the work. Sometimes people are tasked with work above their abilities and left to wallow in perpetual sadness. Lots of turnover; especially with PMs and Devs. Sometimes the projects are a boring or needlessly complicated. This is a very large company with a sink or swim mentality. If you can handle it, you can do well here. If you want a team atmosphere and high-end tech, this probably isn't the best place.

    Great Place to Learn

    Jan 8, 2022 - Analytics Consultant in Orlando, FL
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    1. Company pays for whatever certification you want to earn 2. Flexible Schedule 3. Pay is higher than average for the industry 4. 99% of fellow employees are wonderful people 5. Work with wide variety of clients (retail, financial, etc.) 6. The opportunities to learn more about your craft are honestly endless. The fellow analytics professionals are extremely smart and always willing to teach others, share experiences, help out as needed. 7. Rarely ever need to work more than 40 hours a week, unless desired. 8. Cutting edge analytics technology 9. Adobe Sandbox Environments 10. Working for this company looks GREAT on your resume

    Cons

    1. Don't expect to ever meet/interact with upper management (Above VP level) 2. Bonuses are hard to obtain 3. Project Managers and DEVs are pretty clueless when it comes to analytics. They don't understand what we do, why its important, or why it can take a long time to complete a task. There needs to be more training, more communication between PMs and analytics. You have to self-advocate a lot. 4. There is a lot of turnover in PMs. I really don't understand why, but there is.

    Jul 8, 2022 - Senior Project Manager 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    1. Somewhat flexible working hours. 2. Certain leadership members were great to work with. 3. Used to have the best Magento developers in the biz.

    Cons

    BAiCi is a corporate nightmare. Made up of multiple smaller agencies that all consolidated together under Infosys, you've got the typical downfalls of a large, corporate agency: leadership that pretends to care, but doesn't really; price tags over employee satisfaction; compensation lacking despite large company growth, etc. The HR department is probably the worst: very fake and clearly biased toward certain employees.

    Pros

    Room to grow. You can quickly move from entry level to senior positions if you put in the work. Very open culture, and flexible in regards of working schedule.

    Cons

    PTO and Sick days deducted from same account, so if you're sick and have to take off, you'll lose PTO days.
