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

    Some great local co-workers are here. Really good people.

    Cons

    The new owner is absolutely running this place to the ground. I expect the ultimate vision is to get everybody from the US outsourced. This assumption is simply based on the way the owner treats everyone. This individual is more of a, react first & berate before understanding what's going on. Everyone feels like they're walking on eggshells and breathe a *sigh* of relief when you're not the punching bag. Some decisions this individual made has made a significant impact in my career on how to identify a terrible leader. Awful!

    New owners ruined this company

    Pros

    Was a good place to work - good culture, cohesive team, good work/life balance. Not the highest salary, but generous PTO and open atmosphere.

    Cons

    Since new owners took over, the company is a shell of what it was. Reduced PTO, no raises, jobs moving overseas. Had to fight to have 401k, no matching. Many core people leaving through layoffs or finding new jobs.
