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

    Talented rank and file, nice people

    Graphcore Response

    Firstly, thank you for acknowledging that Graphcore is made up of many talented employees – we take great pride in having some of the best people in the business, and the friendly, collegiate work environment that they enjoy. We’re sorry that you felt less impressed with senior management. Our leadership team has a long track-record of building and growing successful technology companies and had put in place processes and programmes to ensure that Graphcore’s values inform the company’s everyday actions. In the midst of the pandemic, we initiated a comprehensive multi-month leadership development programme to elevate the skills of all leaders throughout the business and bring together members from teams across the business to develop shared strategies. Weekly manager catch-ups allow all employees to feed back on any challenges they may be having, or raise opportunities for development. We also run formal quarterly annual sessions for every employee where they can reflect not only on their own performance, but that of their managers.

    Utterly toxic at the top

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Superb, brilliantly talented rank and file.

    Cons

    Truly toxic at the highest level in a way I have never seen before( and I spent 5 yrs in Silicon Valley). Some people at the very highest level have positions based on personal relationships, not somptency and all that that leads to. some truly deranged people at VP level who have no idea or experience in what their work entails.

    Pros

    Great office location (Oslo, Bristol and Palo Alto); great benefits, snacks, trusted to not be micromanaged and proactive, receptive and approachable management, great people, unlimited time off and extremely respectful of holiday time and weekends, growing quickly...

    Cons

    Everything is great--could improve on some things that are results of quick growth. Need to improve communication and scalability of current processes for future, but are working on items as they come up.
