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?

    Good company, but needs improvement in Hillsboro

    Pros

    Mostly great people to work with. You are recognized for your work, as we have smaller shift staffing here. Time and a half after 8hrs on compressed shifts, are amazing. Three strands of time off, instead of a just a PTO bucket, is incredible.

    Cons

    Management does not do a great job in retaining their engineers. They don't seem to know or care to make them happy; therefore, attrition has been at an all-time high. People are demoralized and looking for other jobs within the industry, or getting ready to move to Ohio for the new Intel fab. Poor equipment and horrendous quality assurance from factory (we get DOA or defective parts on the regular). I blame these issues partially on the site we are working at: Intel PDT/R&D, as life is very harsh here, compared to other fabs within the semiconductor industry. Bad sites make all vendor companies, not as good as they can be.

    - I have been looking for Pros for almost a year and nothing comes to mind

    - Favoritism - 80's management style - Managers have full power and are fully taking advantage of the situation - Pay is very low compared to other companies in the industries and area - HR is on the management side -- If you have an issue better looking for a new job - No process, everyone has their WoW and it's a mess.
