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?

    Pros

    This was by far the worst company that I have ever had the displeasure of working for.

    Cons

    Tone deaf CEO incapable of speaking to an audience, let alone running a company anywhere other than the ground. Incapable and lazy management that was unwilling and unable to train and develop a net new team. Its almost as if they took their leadership courses at clown college, but I’m not even sure they’d get accepted there. Manager would call in from a different location every week while simultaneously ghosting on meetings or canceling them altogether. Manager would funnel all inbound leads to his favorite sales rep, regardless of territory, then lie to our face saying they were PGed by the rep - as if we weren’t watching the inbound lead queue like a hawk for the entirety of our employment. Company alienated their entire channel by failing to pay partners then couldn’t understand why no partners would do business with them. Leadership sold the business for pennies, pocketed millions, and left employees shares virtually worthless while simultaneously chanting “Rah rah were gonna go public!”. - yeah, there was never a single employee that believed this. I can walk away confidently saying that this place taught me absolutely nothing other than how to NOT run a team or a business.
