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?

    Good Place to Work - Lots of Investment in Modernization of Software

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Excellent job taking care of employees during COVID-19. Everyone is working remotely. We have had mental health days, home office reimbursements, and a wellness box. Also Senior Management has spent alot of their time having sessions open to all employees about different areas of the business. Lots of investment in modernizing our software this year and in the near future has created lots of opportunities for software engineers to learn new skills and to exchange ideas across teams. Benefits are also reasonably priced (employee contribution)

    Cons

    Planning and Budgeting process always seems chaotic.
