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?

Should have seen the signs, red flags mean something!Apr 27, 2023 - Salesforce Administrator in Denver, CORecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
When starting I believed in the manager but quickly learned that the entire salesforce team had left. The upside was how positive the stakeholders and coworkers were!
The coworkers that enticed me to join ended up quickly leaving and were replaced with a new guard who didn't communicate and interact with me. I was told when I asked that everything was going great only to find one day I was booted out the door.Continue reading

A great place to start your careerJan 19, 2023 - Anonymous EmployeeRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
1. I loved my team. My favorite team I've worked with 2. I had a lot of fun while working here 3. I had the most career growth while I was here. A lot of opportunity to step up and learn new things 4. The Executive Team was my favorite I've worked with
1. The key reason I left was compensation. Their whole compensation and recruiting structure is to hire early career so they can pay you less. Do not get good bumps in pay with promotion 2. Typical things you see at a software company

A company on the declineDec 29, 2022 - Senior Software Engineer in Denver, CORecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Four Winds Interactive has a lot going for it. The company has a strong customer base, a good foundation for their product, and smart employees. The company has a lot of different avenues for growth and learning in a variety of areas, and provides a decently laid back environment that doesn't take itself too seriously. Four Winds Interactive provides a lot to its customers, and there is always something meaningful to work on that provides value to users. In addition to this, the architecture and QA team does really good work and works hard. They're great to work with.
Unfortunately, the middle management at Four Winds Interactive are filled with incompetent people with little leadership skills. On the technical side, the technical leaders amount to not much more than a warm body to fill a role. The technical leaders do not provide any value on discussions related to product direction, infrastructure decisions, or any type of vision for the future that employees can get behind. In addition, it's very difficult to get any type of upward mobility. Management requires a lot of following up with in order to get any type of salary increase or promotion. In fact, at one point I was given a promotion without a salary increase, which I found to be highly insulting. A lot of poor decisions were made in quick succession that drove away a lot of the great engineers on the team. But, management did not seem to care, nor did they do anything to stop the bleeding or incentivize people to stay with the company. If the technical management was replaced with people who had passion, technical competence, and a lead-by-example mentality Four Winds Interactive could really excel.Continue reading

Changing business priorities changed the cultureApr 14, 2022 - Middle Management in Denver, CORecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Cool flashy technology, worldwide customer base of the biggest companies, fun Denver-based tech employees, beautiful office.
When it was fully owned by the founder, it was an exciting, celebratory, fast-growing place to work. But, ownership changed, and now the goal is not to be the biggest, best, coolest company around. The new goal became to quickly acquire other companies, minimally integrate the products, minimize spending on employees and tools, and make the books and product portfolio look as attractive as possible in order to sell it all off to a bigger company in a few years. It's probably going to work, but it's not fun for the employees as they will see their workload increase and salary decrease, and they will not have a stake in the end sale.

Lots of moving partsAug 9, 2022 - Sales Executive in Waltham, MARecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Great product lines that help serve more than half off the fortune 100.
Came into the org at an interesting time where they were merging 3 companies into 1. after 8 months on the job, process is still being refined and still has a lot of work to be done.

FWI knows people are peopleMay 31, 2022 - Anonymous EmployeeRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
It is great to finally work with a company that doesn’t micro manage. That knows each individual is a person and has human emotions, needs, family, and moments outside of work. You can be a person here.
While they are getting better at it… there are a lot of things happening at once and it gets difficult to keep up and locate resources without having to ask questions.Continue reading

Plenty of Potential Impaired by the Inability to Grasp Employee ConcernsJan 15, 2022 - Anonymous Employee in Denver, CORecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
The company has done a good job pivoting to allowing remote work permanently. The overall culture feel community-oriented and allows for an overall pleasant work environment.
Leadership seems to not be able to grasp employee concerns around compensation and reducing attrition, especially of resources needed to hit timelines and roadmaps. There is little excuse for the lack of understanding of employee concerns due to several cultural and eNPS surveys over the past few years.Continue reading
