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 culture -Innovative technology -Management team fosters transparency
-Painful industry (taxis) -Long hours during crunchtime

Small team, lots of autonomy, get the chance to level up if you stay long enough.
Tons of politics, strictly a top down structure, not resourced to get your job done, the drivers you serve or at best unappreciative of what you do, at worst hostile, no culture.Continue reading

-If you work hard you can move up quick. -your voice is heard -good idea for a product -a bunch of snacks and free lunch -my opinion was respected and i had a voice -the CEO was very cool to me and other employees, I don't know why he's getting such a bad wrap on here -they gave me opportunities, good salary, moved up in the company - they do value hard work (I am basing the star rating mostly on my experience as an employee)
The idea is good but they're going about it all wrong. Competing with Uber is difficult enough but the main problem is the product is that it offers no benefits. -even more expensive than a regular taxi cab -taxi drivers offer terrible service -taxi drivers have a very difficult time trying to use the app -taxi's are dying and the industry will soon be gone in many places - Manifest destiny/ride share evolution -there's no chance of this company competing with Uber or Lyft especially with a product offering no upside using it -only a matter of time before the company goes under -the leadership was lacking.. Questionable hires (the CEO did hire his babysitters for management roles - did not go well) -random/sloppy decisions lead to a failed project that lead to the loss of many jobs -a lot of smart people left in loads. New hires all the time to replace people leaving or fired -taxi drivers are usually just terrible.Continue reading

-Nice management -Fun work atmosphere -Worked as a brand ambassador so all you had to do was be friendly and spread the word about flywheel
-Event marketing -so I didn't get to know my schedule for the next month in the summer months -Talking to people to get them to download the application got tiresome, but if you have a lot of energy it's good -Manager set the bar high for how many downloads she wanted and so almost all the time we didn't reach the goal that can become a let down and then can lead to employees not caring about the goal

- Tight knit culture - Cool product
- Fairly unsuccessful business model - Lack of growth - Getting beaten out by competitors - Heard new executive team are micro-mangers and terrible

- Former Employee, less than 1 year★★★★★Dec 16, 2015 - Developer in Redwood City, CARecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Typical startup perks: snacks, lunches and relaxed office environment. Nice location in downtown Redwood City.
Poor management. CTO micromanaged every aspect of development: No Agile. No Waterfall. No project management whatsoever. Impulsive decision making from CTO. Contradictory decision making from executive team. Nepotism. The CEO hired two of his nannies and his nephew for jobs within the company. Yappy dog running around the office. Lack of growth: Stagnant company burning through investors money. What has Flywheel done with the millions and millions of dollars they receive? Turnover: Seems like everyday there's a new dev to replace one that quit / was fired for disagreeing with CTO.Continue reading

Close to RWC Caltrain station, average salary
CEO, Upper Management, Work/Life Balance, consistency. ZERO company culture, basically just working to collect paychecks and leaving. Everyone who works at this company hates working there. At least 5 people I worked with are looking for new employment, I was lucky enough to find it and get out! Worst CEO/Manager I've ever had in my life. Absolutely atrocious. Steve Humphreys had a vision and worked hard to achieve it, Rakesh is arrogant and flat out awful. Recommend to a friend? No chance, I wouldn't even recommend to an enemy.Continue reading
