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?

    Working at cypress is a workout

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    if you're looking to stay healthy physically then this is the job for you. 11 hour shifts while being on your feet walking back and forth and keeping machines running and not idled while still having to be precise about what you're doing on the computer and systems kept me active and healthy. although the systems they use and their quotas they expect you at the end of the day can be mentally draining, it can help you keep your mind off of life

    Cons

    alot of micromanagement going on which is kind of stressfull. They tend to switch you to different "bays" when you first start out working there so it's kind of hard when they set you in your "bay" to learn everything in that area and switch you around to different area's where they only briefly explain the temp bay they put you in and you kind of have to figure it out yourself without trying to mess up the "system".

    TOXIC SWEATSHOP!

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Stable check and the usual bare minimum benefits.

    Cons

    Overworked employees and always understaffed,. That company makes billions and has a cheap mindset. Wait for tools to totally breakdown to buy new tools, always putting patches and band aids instead of fixing real problems. They talk a big game, but all is hollow because there is not action. Countless time wasting meetings that go nowhere. Want to soend the holidays with your family? Tough luck cause they don't care. You will work on the holidays. Clueless management that are so out of touch. If all the employees walked out management would not know what to do because they don't even know the proper procedures. They are all YES MEN and Engineers are also in their own bubble and are complicit or the toxic enviroment by not doing Kaizen events or other tools used by any company who uses proper total quality management systems. Quality Control? Who cares! There is no type of innovation or continuous improvement program for procedures or employee development. Some managers have been working there for decades and stuck in the 80's. Just Stay Away. Find yourself a better job. If you are desperate run Favor, doordash or charge scotters with lime. I'm leaving or have already quitted. I'm saving your soul and mental health with this review.
