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?

    Pros

    Great hours, benefits, and pay

    Cons

    Team dynamics are not great, management is a club you either are invited to join or are restricted from. Promote quickly if you play along. Mostly concerned with selling the product and meeting the demands of the account holders and do not truly try to improve the end user experience, meaning the support staff

    Excellent culture and people with an opportunity to drive innovation in healthcare and wellbeing

    Jan 19, 2022 - Director in San Francisco, CA
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    • The corporate culture and focus on employee wellbeing is one of the best I've experienced • Recently announced merger with Vera Whole Health and new private equity investment which should provide more of an opportunity to drive additional innovation in healthcare and wellbeing • Excellent company paid benefits for employees, and good compensation for the industry

    Cons

    • Employee Turnover: There's been a lot of employee attrition recently, and it appears to be due to the organization's need to innovate its product offering, strategy, and skillsets • Structure: Because of legacy acquisitions and employee turnover, there's somewhat of a siloed environment with a lot of inefficiencies that could use more structure and increased collaboration between teams • Culture: While it's my favorite part of my experience so far, it's not for everyone. Colleagues are nice and respectful, but expectations are high and the organization is demanding more accountability, measurement, innovation, and prioritization. I enjoy this, but it is not for everyone.

    Best place I've ever worked. Truly.

    Dec 8, 2021 - Quality Coach in Sandy, UT
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    I’ve been at other companies that talk a lot about growth within the company and culture and this is actually the first place I've truly experienced that. It is so genuine here. The leadership just wants you to succeed professionally and personally and gives you so many tools and resources to be able to do so. They have a lot of faith in their employees that has really stood out to me. Stock, competitive pay, tools and resources, lots of perks, and fantastic benefits

    Cons

    Honestly, they've been too lenient on employees that aren't pulling their weight and it's really hard to get fired (some think that's a good thing but there needs to be a better balance). This has started to negatively affect those that do show up but I feel they've taken this feedback seriously and have already started taking corrective actions. (but are still empathetic to giving people a chance and actually care if the reason they aren't performing well is because of personal hardships)
