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

    Your community is what you make it. They have a good list of clients to get involved with. Perfect place to get lost in the grind and get paid well.

    Cons

    Constant fluctuation due to acquisition after acquisition. There's not a clear path toward growth or opportunity.

    It used to be good.

    Nov 2, 2022 - Senior Software Engineer in Dallas, TX

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    They have good perks such as unlimited time off. They also have good clients and good learning opportunities.

    Cons

    It was bought by Cognizant and now is downhill. Bench used to be where you do training and find a client without much worry but now you only have 35 days to find a client or you will get the boot simple as that. So the company has become really stressful for many people and many of them are finding other opportunities elsewhere.

    Once innovative, now at the mercy of Cognizant

    Oct 11, 2022 - Senior Product Manager 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Softvision was known for it's stand out and innovative software product engineering. Folks were scrappy and inspired, the work was interesting, and the people were engaged. It felt like the company you wanted to be at forever. Managers cared, sales and delivery managers managed client expectations, and teams bonded over problem solving.

    Cons

    Then the merger with Cognizant began creeping into the day-to-day activities. Work became more cookie cutter and run-of-the-mill. Sales teams sold staff augmentation and promised unrealistic deliverables, then bullied and pushed the teams to meet them. Managers disappeared because they became powerless to help, teams were grinding to the bone and didn't have time to connect with other team members. Reviews, promotions, and merit increases were frozen - and a LOT of really good people left.
