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?

    Excellent Career Decision

    Pros

    Great pay and benefits. Anyone who says the benefits are lacking hasn't worked for a crappy company that doesn't invest in their employees. They're just bitter about going from 93% to 90% cost coverage! Welcome to reality and it could be WAY worse. 401k Matching - a must have! Executive leadership is truly interested in doing the right things for the company and the employees - internal promotions, diversity, compensation leveling, opportunity for growth, work/Life balance. Best in class technology - tired and true. No "start-up" risk of failure. Smart, talented, driven co-workers.

    Cons

    The "great resignation" has hit Forescout hard as it has many technology companies. Some teams are too lean right now which creates a lot of work for the individuals on teams hit hardest. Some of the more tenured employees can't let go of the "good old days" and transform with the company. Lots of bitterness and resentment. It's a different company with different leadership and a different vision then it was 5 years ago. There's no going back now. People need to make a decision to commit to being successful or leave.

    Pros

    There is nothing positive about Forescout. This was a team oriented, results driven company before private equity firm Advent acquired Forescout in 2020. Now it is a dumpster fire!

    Cons

    Advent has squeezed every penny from Forescout, including significantly cutting employee benefits in Jan 2022. There have been numerous layoffs and cutbacks affecting virtually every department. Advent has given preferential treatment to the incompetent staff it has brought in to the detriment of the existing employees, many of whom have thrived at Forescout for years. Needless to say, morale is terrible creating exceptionally high turnover across all departments.
