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?

    Awesome culture; mediocre pay.

    Pros

    Overall morale is strong, culture is really fun, great work-play balance, great Mt. Pleasant location.

    Cons

    Compensation seems to be below market, even in the low-comp market of Vancouver. Product is slow to evolve.

    A mess - wouldn't touch with a bargepole

    Aug 5, 2021 - Sales Executive in Vancouver, BC
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    - a chill environment - you can get by not doing a lot if you keep your head down - some basic internet co perks - coffee, snacks - pay is pretty good depending on where you live. Benefits improved a lot. - Not many options in Vancouver - a lot of people are leaving so good job security if you want to stay - umm

    Cons

    - Legacy HS people don't want anything to change. Anyone that cares enough to challenge the legacy is pretty quickly shouted down, pushed out, or leaves. - Sprout - $4.5B valuation+, Sprinklr - $350MM raise and upcoming IPO, Hootsuite... - The people put into leadership positions are often the weakest of the bunch (except for current head of CS and Commercial Sales - everyone else...) - Recent leadership hires - don't even know where to start.

    Not quite there yet

    Jan 17, 2021 - Account Executive in London, England

    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Relatively open and progressive working environment and flat hierarchies in middle management. Free coffee, fruit and tee.

    Cons

    It seems like the company hasn't quite figured out which direction to go. Constant strategy changes with little transparency from HQ in Vancouver. Big waves of lay-offs every 2-3 years are apparently normal which are followed by a lot of new hires. The company has a very high fluctuation rate. HR and recruitment seem completely overwhelmed. Salary wasn't always accurate. Compensation structure completely out of date for sales. You can wait up to 89 days until you are compensated for a closed deal.

    Great people...that’s it.

    Jun 20, 2019 - Account Executive in Toronto, ON

    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Snacks sometimes, good Toronto office location. The people are great, very much a team although cliques everywhere. Looks great on a resume though

    Cons

    Terrible pay Terrible commission Terrible hours Teams often pitted against each other Too many meetings that can just be an email Toronto gets shafted, don’t think about coming in later than 8:25 and leaving before 5 while Vancouver office is empty at 4:00.

    Internal improvements required urgently

    May 9, 2019 - Commercial Account Executive in Singapore
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    - Good work-life balance - Cool company HQ - New hires in satellite offices get to onboard in Vancouver - Easy access to middle-managers, directors and VPs - Ability to sell partner products to increase deal value (Listening, Security etc.)

    Cons

    - Company product is reliant on what social media companies give. E.g. All companies in the industry want the ability to do direct publishing of Instagram Stories, but are reliant on Instagram Public API for that - 5 VPs (and counting) have left since 2019 - Massive layoffs every 2 year - Some decisions seem to go against agenda set during kick-off - Questionable corporate acquisitions (AdEspresso, Naritiv, UberVu)

    Sales

    Pros

    The Toronto Office is a great office and is really driving a lot of growth for the company. The work ethic is really strong and the quality of people really understand how to drive big strategic sales. The management is really top notch and approachable.

    Cons

    Vancouver is really still the heart of the organization and it feels like good work in the Toronto office goes unnoticed. The product is severly lacking the features to be truly enterprise. A lot of the features that pushed Hootsuite to be #1 in the Forester wave were still in development, which caused us to loose a lot of big deals.
