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

    Wonderful company culture, focused on personal growth and innovation. Dolby produces remarkable advances and discoveries in audio, due to a focus on deep understanding of difficult problems and delivery of high-quality solutions.

    Cons

    Job tenure tends to be more long-term than most technical employers, so advancement can be slow unless departments are expanding.
