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?

    Donates thousands of dollars, but can't give their employees raises

    Pros

    Great work/life balance. Remote is a massive plus.

    Cons

    I find at very infuriating that our company will not consider a salary raise to keep up with the costs of inflation, but they can donate $50,000 to support Ukraine. I am all for donating if the company has the finances to do so, but maybe they should take care of their own workforce before helping others at that level.

    Organizational issues (especially) post-mergers

    Apr 5, 2022 - Anonymous Employee

    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Supportive team, talented people, decent benefits, decent work/life balance, products with lots of potential to dominate the market.

    Cons

    The organizational structure was constantly changing over my last 2 years there. This caused a lot of confusion/disruption in the culture because people were moved to different teams, had title changes, new leadership, etc. As a result, a lot of valuable and talented people are undervalued and pushed to the side. I felt I was paid well before COVID/mergers, but then went a whole year without a raise and another with an insultingly low raise that did not even keep up with 2 years' inflation. Leadership needs to figure out where the company is going with the tech/product lines. Few seem to understand which product lines would be developed further and how they would be marketed. I was not in sales, but this was clearly difficult for sales teams to manage considering clients ended up signing on without fully understanding what they had bought and how to leverage.

    Very exciting times at Forsta- the new company has come together and has a bright future. Leadership team is strong, smart employees and good tech.
