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?

    Extremely well run security startup!

    Pros

    One of the rare companies with a working culture, everyone is on the same page and working to grow the product and company. A company that makes room for different approaches and champions the good ones. Location (Santana Row) is awesome, really the best (defacto) company cafeteria ever and an awesome place to be at when your day is over. The product is already strides ahead of it's competitors, has a large amount of interest and can still only get better.

    Cons

    It is a start up, so as another review mentioned the pace is pretty hectic sometimes. I don't view that as much of a negative, but may not be for everyone.

    Great startup to be at right now

    Pros

    Apart from usual perks, the single best reason this is "the" place to be is the potential to grow the software solution to something that will attract many big clients. It is a hard problem to solve with a continuously moving target. There is an amazing amount of learning on a daily basis, working round the clock with an offshore team.

    Cons

    It is a fast paced startup and not a cushy big government-like bay area company so not really for everyone. Only the right person at the right point in time of his/her life will be able to enjoy working here.

    Pros

    - Amazing team always ready to help, great camaraderie - Place to be for commited and motivated individuals - Stunning technology and well thought out execution that gives the company an edge - Very well planned go to market strategy - Recently brought in new sales leadership in north america, team has the needed positive energy and intense focus on customer outreach, engagement and satisfaction. Am glad of enhancements and changes there.

    Cons

    - Fast paced, intense focus on execution and results, not necessarily a con. That said, you have to have the positive attitude to succeed..

    The place to be for cloud app security

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    I've worked at several network and cloud security companies and Elastica is hands down the best: wonderfully collaborative and accessible management, leading SaaS security technology, and a location that can't be beat in the middle of Santana Row, San Jose CA. Fast paced, yet with good work home balance and lots of opportunities to socialize with colleagues during happy hours and bowling tournaments.

    Cons

    None of note. Still a startup, so it's not for the faint of heart due to the fast pace.

    Micromanaging Culture

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    -Cool technology in a growing market space -Friendly individual contributors -Cisco partnership provides credibility in the crowded market -Office is in a cool location

    Cons

    -Micromanagement from the executive level is driving employees across all business units crazy -Payment of comp is historically slow (many times over a month late) -Executive management would try to re-negotiate comp payments after missing the payment -Executive management would move the goal posts of agreed MBOs to avoid comp payments -Because of the above any A-level players burn out and don't last long. Only yes-men need apply -Crowded market space with low barrier to entry will increase pricing pressure -Seems like the goal is to be acquired by Cisco instead of building a sustainable business -Anyone who has worked at a professionally run enterprise or startup will be disappointed by the lack of high-quality leadership

    Worst company

    Pros

    Santana row is a nice fancy location Usual snacks and dinner

    Cons

    Micro managing Leadership does not trust anyone Hired all sales from Qualys - and these guys are not good and very ruthless Product very unstable. They are trying but claims of performance and scalability are all false. QA is so manual that lots of bugs go to production. They have the worst benefits - if you do something stupid and join - factor in about $15k extra for your share of benefits compared to other companies Watch for dilution and how they renage on certain payments (expenses etc) even after they agrew to pay! Partnerships are all b.s. - they have been working on them for over a year and trying to flip the company to anyone interested - but the tech does not work as promised

    Great technology, great people and exciting opportunity. The new sales leadership team is outstanding with a solid understanding of the SaaS market. Having fun with positive energy.

    Cons

    Some of the legacy sales team are creating negative energy and are simply distracted by the wrong approach to SaaS sales.

    Pros

    Santana row has many spots to eat. Engineers at the company are good and easy to work with. They are in a hot space.

    Cons

    This company is micro managed by the CEO. The company changed the goals of my MBO retroactively. Company is slow to pay expenses. CEO expects only "yes-men". Don't expect to make a change. Company had a great CTO but he left.
