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

    Everyone is welcoming, kind, honest, respectful, hard working and talented. Great hours and 100% remote if you want. Pay is great and the benefits are excellent. The overall culture is very openminded and forward thinking. Employees have a real voice.

    Cons

    Too many products... although it gives us something to do, refine and pull from. So it's not really a Con in my book.

Culture
The season of gratitude is here again. It's also Native American Heritage Month and what better way to celebrate the two than by hearing from our very own Clouderan, Ashely Wescott, about what she is grateful for being a Native American Woman in Technology. Read what she shared on LinkedIn here. We're grateful to Ashely for sharing her heartfelt story and to every Clouderan who continues to make a lasting impact at work, with our clients and in their communities. #EmployeeStories #HappyThanksgiving #WomeninTech #NativeAmericanHeritageMonth

Our offices in Bengaluru and Chennai were decorated with festive colors. Colleagues from EMEA and APAC joined us for a virtual celebration organized by our DE&I team and participated in quizzes and games centered on Diwali! #Cloudera #ClouderaLife #DEI #DiwaliCelebrations
