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?

    Great Culture & Hard Working Talent

    Jun 6, 2022 - Assistant Vice President - Sales 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Made a career change leaving the Banking Industry after 3+ years and recently joined CRD. What attracted me to CRD was the company’s growing presence in the Fin-tech industry, the horizontal corporate culture, and the talented and welcoming employees at CRD. In my last role, I had many positive first-hand interactions working CRD employees while I was at the Bank. Everyone is personable, willing to teach you, and is focused on talent - not title. The company provides a well-rounded environment that allows for professional growth, learning new technical skills and leadership opportunities, as long as your willing to challenge yourself. The company encourages talent that are proactive and self-starters. They encourage those who are willing to take on new responsibilities, but ensure you have the right tools and supportive team to help accomplishment those goals. The company is currently a hybrid WFH model, which allows flexibility to WFH or go into the Burlington office. The CRD team sends out weekly notices of catered snacks and lunches once a week to encourage in-person collaboration days. We’ve had a few fun team building off-site activities in Boston! The team was outgoing and welcoming to all. Overall great culture and happy I joined the CRD Team!

    Cons

    No cons at CRD. One challenging aspect is that STT acquired CRD, so there can be some confusing org chart dynamics at first. The experienced CRD employees will help you walk through the acquisition dynamics. Overall, positive experience so far!

    Solid Rotation Program, competitive pay

    Jun 13, 2022 - Implementation Consultant in Burlington, MA
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    - The associate consultant rotational program is a solid introduction to CRD as well as the industry. You get great visibility within the company due to the solid reputation of the program as well as a solid overview with work experience in Support and Product Development teams before joining consulting - First year pay for the program is hourly, which means every hour of OT is well rewarded - People are fairly good with helping learn and org structure is flat for most of it

    Cons

    - Once you graduate from the program, you will effectively make lesser money since you are no longer paid hourly. The bonus plus base does not meet the hourly rate even though it is still a raise to the bonus and is a good pay overall - You need to fight for yourself and ensure you get exposure and placed in the product module of your choice. If you dont, you will go where need is and that might not always align with your preference - The pay is good, but the only way to get good base bumps is by either leaving the company or accepting a new job opportunity internally

    Awesome place to work

    May 23, 2022 - Sales Manager 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    The best place to start is the people. The entire group is 1) unbelievably hard working and 2) very personable. In the three years that I've worked at CRD, my professional skills have grown exponentially. From the management team down, there's a clear corporate strategy and a winning attitude.

    Cons

    Less of a con, but you need to be dedicated to working hard. That being said, hard workers are very well rewarded.
