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

    . Nice work/life balance. As others have said, 9/80 is great schedule . Great consumer facing technology . Bright, insightful colleagues. Some are really tough leaders in their fields . Decent amount of training and learning, if you know where to look for

    . Sometimes too policial . Org structure not optimized for performance. Looks more like people choices drive the org, not the other way around
