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?

    Look somewhere else

    Mar 21, 2021 - Product Engineer 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    - Teammates are fantastic and a great bunch of decent people - Perks are not so bad, they are improving - Really good work-life balance - Big user base, so there's demonstrably big impact you can sell at your next opportunity - Good name for your resume

    Cons

    - CEO sold himself as this affable down to Earth guy, who reads "how to be an anti racist" before bedtime. Reality is that his strategy focused on hyper growth is having a huge human cost, pushing out the little remaining worthy talent we had left. Nothing he says or does inspires confidence anymore. - Our churning rates are at 40%, meaning that out of 100 new people we hired into the workforce in Q1, 60 current employees left (actual highlight of latest all hands). - DE&I is just platitudes and words. Leadership still is, and will continue being, a straight white male sausage fest. Salaries are hugely skewed towards men. Beware if you identify as a woman or are a POC. - CTO keeps bringing in cronies from previous company Sitecore, based in US with big fat salaries. All other department budgets are shrinking.

    Going from bad to worse

    Nov 23, 2020 - Senior Manager in Vancouver, BC
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Used to have a laid-back culture, with fun parties, and a strong work-life balance. Some strong leaders passed through for a moment in time.

    Cons

    New leadership is driving out the last remnants of talent. Clueless product leadership, unwilling to make the hard choices to clean up RH's mess.
