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?

    Don’t believe all the 5-star hype

    Business Outlook


    Talented, hardworking and smart individual contributors. Solid solutions. Sales team trying to do right by customers.


    Lacks strategy with a new C-level leadership team that is in way of their heads. Concerned more with hiring buddies than the best talent. New CEO is out for herself, trusts no one and micromanages. New CRO full of smoke and mirrors. Inexperienced leadership at top is impacting middle management and front line workers.

    Radical Transparency

    Business Outlook


    Market leading tech WAF becoming more commoditized Database is still green field with upside and very few competitors Passionate people Paying market or above to new hires to compensate for above average attrition rate Efforts underway to address problem areas for over a year since new CEO joined


    CEO Chris Hylen is widely viewed as responsible for the high attrition rate Unpredictible mood, behavior swings, and direction to staff Exec Staff behave like they never know when or why the next swing will occur Tech innovation has slowed to a crawl Customer and employee retention have become big challenges Finance and G&A continue to slow Sales execution with processes not seen at much larger public companies Customer Support used to be a differentiator, not so today "Imperva Credo" corporate values are a step in the right direction if demonstrated from the top down - which unfortunately employees generally agree is not happening yet Run like an MBA project (work groups, streams, teams, exec offsites to Normandy to walk the battle fields...) with very little interest or understanding of what will actually delight customers
