The latest conversations about Tech




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?

        GovCIO is great at getting the best people for the job, and maintaining a relatively low stress environment that helps retain workers better than the competition. While regular raises are abysmal, upward movement is encourage and supported, and pays pretty decent for the time that you are hired. The company gave out a single polo or a water bottle as a Welcome Aboard item, but that one time event was it. There are corporate get togethers outside of work hours about once, maybe twice a year.


        Pay raises are very rare within a position, and when they do come, they're almost insultingly low. A yearly pay raise within your position won't even cover half of the increase in cost of living, and that was before the recent inflation spike. This has gotten so bad that I'm now getting offers from other companies willing to pay $40-65k more than GovCIO because they won't keep up with regular raises much less give them out based on merit.

      Project Coordinator

      I recently had an interview with a hiring manager. The conversation went well in my opinion and they ended it by saying they would “like to schedule a day for me to meet their team and get a feel for the projects they’re working on and then have the conversation about what I’m looking for as far as compensation.” I’m not sure what to expect from this, a part of me feels like this means they might want me for the role, but the process is a little unorthodox from my experience. Any thoughts?
