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?

    Former Employee, more than 1 year

    Learned a lot about prospecting

    Pros

    Learned a lot about prospecting that most companies don't teach. I'm an AE at another company now and have had good success. What I learned prospecting has helped me out a lot

    Cons

    Have to be in the role a while before moving to an AE position. But that's pretty much anywhere

    Went down the drain

    Pros

    Used to be amazing. Full of bright and eager people, clear values and aspirations.

    Cons

    Since the BTC aquisition we have lost most of the former company. Values, ethics, everything tossed straight down the drain. It sucks to work here now and people are abandoning ship at every possible opportunity. BTC couldn't care less about BSK employees. They only want to be the biggest sales enablement company and don't care about the amazing people they lose in the meantime. David keane is slimy at best and downright unethical at worst.

    Pros

    The Teamwork from the people is great. I Enjoy the fellowship of colleagues. There is a really great sales team.

    Closing the physical office after the pandemic, although understandable in some ways, could diminish the great teamwork and esprit de corps of the company.
