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

    The benefits are good and the future could be great with the right leadership.

    Cons

    There seems to be a gap between leadership and the individual contributors. There’s not a lot of communication on strategy and releases. Many would like to see the CEO more engaged with our customers. Since June, plans have been in place for a massive reorg resulting in many wondering where they will land. The uncertainty and lack of transparency and direction is creating infighting. In keeping up with most high tech firms, Forescout doesn’t offer any form of equity which is a total disappointment especially to those who are weathering the change.

    Pros

    Remote/home office opportunities, full benefits, interesting industry.

    Cons

    Significant changes after being purchased by PE. Nearly all of management has been replaced, and the company is cutting expenses everywhere they can. Full benefits, but not nearly as good of coverage as they had prior to PE.

    Decent company but not the best

    Sep 22, 2022 - Software Engineer in Plano, TX
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Good work-life balance. Currently Forescout has a hybrid work schedule with 2 days in office and 3 days out of office. Able to WFH on in-office days if needed. Co-workers are friendly and helpful, there is a collaborative environment and not much back-stabbing. Competitive compensation and benefits, although the overall compensation has decreased after being acquired by private equity.

    Cons

    Lots of churn, and significant changes in C-level executives and above. Company does not seem to have a clear focus and cannot seem to commit to any particular strategy. Also there has been a lot of turnover in engineering over the past 2 years, and there is considerable backlog without enough resources. There is a lot of technical debt with the product, and the tech stack is outdated for the core product - Java 8, Perl (!!). Engineers in Dallas are focused on minor feature additions and continued support of the product, and there are not a lot of exciting new projects to work on. No clear career development trajectory.

    Great culture. Good benefits. Good customer base and established product. Nice roadmap ahead for future to become a $1B ARR company.

    nearly not as aggressive as one would think considering it is a private equity owned company. all the good technical work is done in Tel aviv or netherlands. US does all the crap work.
