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?

    Great Culture. Company is growing very fast

    Pros

    Great people-centric culture. Generally cares about employee wellness/well-being/growth. People are the most vital asset that Formstack has. Employees work as a peer helping each other to succeed. Strong remote work setting and culture as they have been doing this for almost 10 yrs. Formstack is going through a phase where they want to become an enterprise/corporate org. Changes/Challenges must be followed in this phase whether employees want it. This phase provides great opportunities for employees to learn how to be more strategic to scale up the business. But it will also take away certain things Formstack had when it was a smaller org. This is the place to be if you love the challenges with the growth. If you prefer more of the small tech company business model, Formstack is walking away from that operation model/culture.

    Cons

    The benefits are great. However, as Formstack wants to grow, the overall compensation range for employees has been an issue. People are learning they are underpaid for what they do compare to other bigger corporates.

    Could be great

    Recommend

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Formstack should be viewed as a pioneer in the remote work environment, namely the previous people leadership team built an incredible framework for a thriving remote culture. The people truly are the best part of this company and I left the organization with many real-life friendships. They offer competitive benefits, a 401K match, and a monthly wellness stipend. They also implemented half-day Fridays as a result of employee feedback. There are annual all-company and departmental gatherings.

    Cons

    There are plenty of great components of Formstack that could keep an employee for many years. Especially if you live in Oklahoma or Indiana because they use these locations as the baseline for their "competitive" salaries. If you live on either coast, don't even waste your time. You will receive a laughable salary. But hey, if you're a part of the C-suite inner circle, I'm confident that they are being compensated off of Silicon Valley baseline pay so if that's the role you're going for then go ahead and toss your name in the hat. The odds will be in your favor if you know someone who knows someone. You may even get to skip the intense interview process altogether in that case, too. There is a lot of work to be done within the sales organization. I heard that they've finally hired a sales leader who knows what they're doing. Give it a good 6 months to let the dust settle and see what happens before considering applying. Otherwise, you'll go through intense onboarding, be handed little to no strategy, and a fat quota all to find yourself on a PIP for something that was 98% out of your control because you didn't have the tools to set you up for success. The sales org has been incredibly toxic for the greater part of the past 3 years, with leaders put in place who are under-qualified, misogynistic, and have no strategic abilities. This behavior is grossly endorsed by C-suite leaders, mostly because they have no idea how a sales team should function. Rather than fixing the core issue (hire a CRO and relieve employees who are underperforming/under-qualified), they turn their heads and keep promoting toxic leaders. Sales reps are given impossibly high quotas with minimal tools to set them up for success. High performers are people who have been with the organization for several years because they have developed a pipeline and partnership opportunities to carry them there. Partnerships is single-handedly saving the sales organization. Promotions are a loose term in the sense that you'll get a great resume-building title change but your compensation will either not change at all or you'll be given a merit increase and told that your title is being changed to match your compensation. At the time that I left the organization, a maximum merit increase was 4%, less than the rate of inflation. If it's not clear already, this means that they're leveraging merit increases as a promotion tool, rather than a standard performance evaluation incentive. Formstack thinks it's an enterprise company and it's not. It's a great mid-market product and I think that if finance, sales, marketing, and product teams would align on this that there would be an incredible GTM opportunity at hand. Until then, you'll have a mid-market product being marketed as a low-code solution and sold at an enterprise quota carrier's price.

    One hand speaks not to the other

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    The idea of Formstack is phenomenal: Work-Life balance, transparency, DEI. It generally working to succeed with all of this. A handful of sales reps are making some good money (they are the exception to the rule).

    Cons

    Formstack is undergoing an awkward puberty phase where roles are not strictly defined and customers tend to fall through the cracks. Lack of available support often forces the sales org to pick up the slack while also trying to maintain an aggressive quota. For an organization specializing in automation, internal sales processes are very clunky. Pay for most employees is subpar.

    Pros

    I worked at Formstack for a couple of years. The people are really nice and friendly and it's a great place to grow your career. They have a great culture and work/life balance.

    Cons

    A lot of the sales department got laid off when I was there. They seemed to be restructuring the department, but it was not clear what was going on when I was there.

    Pros

    -Fantastic co-workers -company is small enough that you can get to know management & executive team on a personal level - good benefits (and fully remote) -great work-life balance, I never feel stressed to work extra hours and always feel like I can take PTO - CEO is a good person and genuinely cares about the company & the employees

    Cons

    Pay is a little on the low side, but overall the positive work environment & ability for a good work-life balance makes the job more than worth it.

    Great company culture and room for growth

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Amazing company culture, always looking to grow. Has a DEI council, internal job boards to promote internally and is growing quickly. For the size (not a giant corporation), Formstack is ahead of it's time (benefits, recognitions, etc), while still being a good (small enough) size to see how your contribution can affect change in the workplace

    Cons

    Like anything in life, if you're growing quickly, you have growing pains. Thankfully the people at Formstack make this a little easier by their "Do you need any help?" attitude, but there are ebbs and flows of more and less work as processes are solidified and new hires are trained, etc.
