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?

    Management change killed culture

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    It was a great place under Steve Humphries, but competing with Uber turns out to be really hard.

    Cons

    New CEO caused total team turnover by bringing in an unpopular executive staff. Three months of unhappiness followed by literally the entire product and engineering team leaving.

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    -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)

    Cons

    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.

    Pros

    Small team, lots of autonomy, get the chance to level up if you stay long enough.

    Cons

    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.

    A company ruined by poor management and nepotism

    Dec 16, 2015 - Developer in Redwood City, CA
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Typical startup perks: snacks, lunches and relaxed office environment. Nice location in downtown Redwood City.

    Cons

    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.
