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?

    Inmar is NOT the place to be.

    Pros

    Nice building. Hardworking co-workers all with the same agenda, make a living.

    Cons

    Its not what you know its who you know<<<<FACT>>>> Its managers in there w/ ZERO experience. Upper management is nowhere to be found. They will tell you that they only hire leaders and innovative employees<<<False>>> If you're a worker bee you have to enter through the back door. Your opinion does not matter and if you happen to be a tad bit smarter than your superior you might as well start looking for other employment. AR/Specialist are at the very bottom of the totem poll..this position is very mundane and repetitive. Zero job security in one day out the next.

    A horrible company that could be great, but never will be with the current management team.

    Pros

    The office is reasonably nice, for a converted tobacco warehouse. Relaxed dress code. Smart, hard-working rank and file employees. Most project-level managers are pretty good. One of the few companies in the Piedmont Triad of its size where you can work with Open Source technologies and/or the Microsoft stack. Salaries and bonuses are actually pretty good. Generous vacation time. You can pretty much come and go as you please unless you're hourly.

    Cons

    Where do I start... So disorganized; No direction; Ready. Fire. Aim. C....h....u...r...n. You can't use the front door - you might track in dust. The office furniture is, well, awful. The chair may as well have been an iron maiden for my lower back. The company doesn't know what it is or wants to be. Is it a software development company? A reverse logistics company? A healthcare management company? WHAT? The CEO is about as clueless as they come. He isn't a technologist by any stretch of the imagination. He put things in boxes and sent them places... now he's manning the helm of an accidental software company - riiiiggghhht. This company blows through development dollars and hours with reckless abandon, the likes of which I've only seen at other soul-crushing, wasteful companies like Dell or Cisco. It's nothing to throw away a year or more of development effort because someone whom no one else would hire, namely the CTO, thought it was 'stupid', because... well... he said so. Upper management was literally asking people to write positive reviews on this site. Believe it. The new CTO, God bless him, brought in two of his cronies from previous companies, without so much as a courtesy interview, and installed them as directors, over people with FAR MORE seniority and expertise. That's a sure-fire way to alienate your existing workforce by the way. The complete lack of any technical understanding at the C-level or above is just laughable. The laptops and other equipment are absurdly, ridiculously slow, outdated and simply not suitable for software development. Most of the best developers and architects provide their own equipment. Inmar can throw a parade and spend thousands and thousands on worthless all-hands meetings, but they can't get developers decent laptops. After all, it's all about priorities. Architects, Enterprise Architects and anyone else with a title vaguely representative of someone who's supposed to know how to write software is completely ignored. The idiocity of 'product owners' and sales people reigns supreme. You'll literally get a feature request that says 'Add Facebook'. Uh, which part would that be? Deadlines for projects are literally pulled out of thin air by sales people, to you know, motivate those slacker developers to get something done. Those same people, who couldn't even spell HTML are the ones dictating the deadlines, with complete disregard for any sort of educated estimate from those sandbagging devs. The CEO seems to think that somehow the company is poised to be a major player; you know because we have 'big data' and 'we're in the cloud' and [insert industry buzzword here]. Oy vey. There is zero accountability from anyone at the management level. 'Great Teams' is well, not so great. Don't expect them to protect you from the wrongdoings of other employees, or basically do anything else that you would expect from a real human resources department. You simply can't compete with people who have no moral fiber, and will hire their own kid over someone more qualified.

    Pros

    Generally nice, friendly co-workers. Interesting engineering tasks and day to day operations.

    Cons

    Some upper management seems out of touch with day to day work. It would be a better functioning work environment with better direction.

    Not "Inmarvelous"

    Pros

    Some fantastic people work at Inmar. Those people are fun to work with and all carry great potential. The benefits are decent, and I'm sure the new building will bring new benefits of its own. Company is focused on the future and will invest in it.

    Cons

    Favoritism and nepotism is rampant throughout the company. Hard to picture any upper mobility when you see positions being created for a select few and family members. Pay structure is uneven and well below where it should be. Upper management expects top notch results but won't pay for it nor invest in the technology needed. Every year came with a new focus... Healthcare! Digital! And now... Analytics! If history repeats itself, expect a good portion of the Analytics division to be laid off after a year or so as well. Company is apparently 'strong' right now, but the layoffs have killed morale. Hard to 'skip to work' when you're friends are being let go.

    Pros

    Decent benefits. Some nice people are there

    Cons

    Upper management shows nepotism. Inmar has been known to push out people with a lot of years to then hire younger ones at less pay.

    Thank you for your feedback. Inmar is fortunate to have you on the team - your commitment to your work and education is commendable! Personal contact with upper management can be challenging in remote locations, so we consistently explore new options and ideas. There is a CEO Chat approaching in August, so please participate as it is a great way to exchange ideas and ask questions of upper management and anyone on the Inmar team! Also, be sure to keep up to date on activities throughout Inmar through our Inmar Informer associate intranet site – and send the Informer team your suggestions on what you would like to know more about – they are here as a resource for you.

    Pros

    Inmar is a great place to the work. The morale is always positive and the people ambitious. Constantly encouraging innovation and education. The benefits are good and the pay is satisfactory. Most of upper management is honest and down to earth. Even the CEO, David Mounts, tells us what his plans are and what is going on. Last year he held a meeting just so that he could explain why he had to let some people go, most companies wouldn't give it a second thought. Not only would I recommend Inmar to a friend, I have to several. The ones who have been able to get a job are advocates for Inmar as well.

    Cons

    Like every company Inmar has had to let people go.

    Pros

    The people I worked with were very helpful. Also the people i was trained with were very helpful and understanding. Out all the multiple supervisors i had, only one was very understanding, and was the one that interacted the most with all the employees the most.

    Cons

    The way some employees are treated by their leads is not fair. There are a couple departments that need. The way some supervisors speak to people is not how a upper management should communicate to the employees. You see a lot of favoritism, when it comes to managers. The company itself does not know how to appreciate their employees, especially ones who have contributed a lot the company.
