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?

    Great Place to Grow

    Apr 19, 2022 - Software Engineer 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    A ton of autonomy over what you work on. Modern tech-stack. Great collaboration with other engineers.

    Cons

    Fast-paced and direction can change quickly, but doesn't seem out of the ordinary for a young company.

    Decent but not 5 stars

    Mar 21, 2022 - Anonymous Employee 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Preamble: Not a bad place to work, but like some other Glassdoor ratings, it's a bit hilarious that it's "five stars". This is why most people don't take the star rating on this website seriously and most of all the top talent in the industry use the blind app instead. Pros: The CEO is a great guy. Very specific parts of the culture were a positive. The work life balance is pretty good.

    Cons

    There were some really strange software architecture and management decisions made during my tenure at the company which was indicative of jaw-dropping naiveté. The entire experience at the company is somewhat geared towards an outdoorsy, "granula" like personality, and if you don't necessarily love that kind of thing, you will be extremely uncomfortable at the forced twice-a-year work outings. Speaking of which, most of the culture was not amazing. There are some really positive things and people here, but it seemed way too complicated to get things done. It also didn't feel like I was working with top-of-the-line people in some very specific circumstances. If you have any experience with FAANG-like companies/culture than you will feel like you are on the junior varsity team when you work here.

    Contributions Can Have a Direct Impact on Company's Success

    Apr 16, 2022 - Software Architect 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    With the current state of product and the development organization contributors have an opportunity to make an immediate impact on customer and company outcomes. The daily work environment is relaxed enough to allow for creativity and to take a few chances on trying new technologies.

    Cons

    There are many cons to be considered outside of the norm for a growing tech company that is just starting to find its market.

    Above average, but worse over time

    Dec 21, 2021 - Senior Software Engineer 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Pre-pandemic - lots of fun activities, team building retreats, etc. Lots of opportunity if you're willing to sacrifice work-life balance. Hopefully this returns at some point.

    Cons

    - Mental illness is treated as a weakness. Don't work here if you suffer from mental illnesses. - Demo driven development is most rewarded - leads to inefficient practices and stress/lack of appreciation for those not working on easily demoable work. - Biggest perks aren't possible during pandemic - Too many focus areas and products leads to small teams being stretched thin. In some cases, individual engineers having to split time over many areas. - Equity is non-standard (profit units) which are difficult to reason about due to the many LLCs present and complex passthrough structure. In general, the equity structure is very opaque and I fear it may be possible for funds to be shifted around to benefit majority stakeholders instead of employees for certain scenarios. - Below average benefits. Raises are tooth and nail to obtain. Performance and compensation don't always correlate. - Hiring bar has dropped over time - lower output and expectations over time.

    Great People, Good Company, but Mediocre Outlook

    Jan 7, 2022 - Senior Software Engineer 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    You will have the opportunity to work with some great people and will learn a ton. The company is engineering-driven. Good benefits. When the office was open... Everyone had their own private office. Providing lots of privacy and time for focused work. Free lunches are provided once a week. The company is invited on semi-annual retreats, which are fun, but also stressful.

    Cons

    Don, the CEO routinely asks everyone to submit a Glassdoor review. It's plausible this has resulted in an overly optimistic opinion on Glassdoor. The leadership team is largely inexperienced in the healthcare industry. There have been some strategic hires, but since the majority of the company is non-healthcare it is difficult for them to implement the changes they need to make. An ever-increasing amount to do since the company pivots frequently. Since Don fully funds the company, you are inclined to do whatever he wants you to do. This is reasonable in its own right but results in a strange dynamic. The company offers incentive units instead of stock options. The claim is that they are less risky than stock options. But they are unproven and structured in a way to ensure that investors will make all of their investment back before you make yours.

    Making a Difference

    Jan 14, 2022 - Director of Strategic Business Development in Indianapolis, IN
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    I have worked at other great companies but all of them were based on building a business. LifeOmic is based on the idea of changing peoples lives for the better and the goal is to change all peoples lives thru better health and wellness. Everything is based on science and proof that it works through real data. I am living proof. LifeOmic products changed my life and the best part of that experience is as an employee myself and my associates get the satisfaction of helping people and changing their lives for the better through our work at LifeOmic.

    Cons

    Only downside, is that health and wellness is so poor in the world today. Sometimes the problem seems overwhelming.

    Really love working here!

    Sep 27, 2021 - Video Marketing Manager 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    LifeOmic is such a wonderful company to be a part of. The culture here is very healthy, positive and happy. They provide excellent benefits, a safe and respectful work place ethic and everyone is nice and friendly to each other. Everyone working here is truly passionate about their job so there's a natural enthusiasm that comes through. Help is always around the corner, people check in on you to make sure you're doing OK and don't need a helping hand with anything. There are no hard and fast rules and harsh demands from management but rather you are entrusted with your role, your tasks and your time-management. You're the keeper of your own responsibilities and discipline with getting your work done at the highest level and in a timely fashion. If you like being respected, friendly, a team-player and show up for your work passions in a disciplined way then you'll love working here!

    Cons

    I absolutely struggle to find cons to working here. The only feedback I would give is that diversity at the company could be improved. It would be really enriching to have people from more diverse backgrounds around to learn from and work with!

    Amazing place to work

    Oct 22, 2021 - Product Director in Indianapolis, IN
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    After 3.5+ years LifeOmic continues to be an amazing place to work. We continue to hire experienced, talented individuals that work hard and are fun to work with. We definitely have a team mentality here and the understanding that when certain teams or product areas do well it benefits the entire company, which means people are always willing and able to chip in across multiple areas of the company. It's very much a "can-do" and get stuff done culture, but in a well thought-out manner and always focused on the broader direction and strategy of the company. Leadership is fantastic and models the type of culture we have and wish to maintain, where everyone has a voice and the best ideas are shared and implemented. Flexible working culture is very nice, especially for people with families and commitments, but everyone works extremely hard and makes sure they aren't letting the team down.

    Cons

    Fast pace (typical at a startup like this) can make it hard to stay informed of everything that's going on, but the team does a good job recognizing when this is happening and taking steps to remedy it.

    A good place to work, not perfect

    Oct 22, 2021 - Software Engineer in Salt Lake City, UT
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    - Autonomy & ownership - Lots of great people - Interesting problems & industry - Great tech stack - Yearly retreat! - Always trying to do better

    Cons

    - Spread very thin, some projects feel very understaffed - CEO fanaticism, Don is great, but I think there's a borderline cult mentality - Poor work / life balance for some, not all. There isn't anything making sure employee work life balance and mental health are okay. There's a great wellness program that supports physical health. - Wrong things are rewarded, engineering excellence seems to be less rewarded in recent years - COO is handles yearly reviews and he's very stingy and not involved in almost all engineering. Isn't very clear with how the reserved units work and doesn't have anywhere you can see your total vested options. Also, I have gotten poor responses when emailing the company after I left to see what options I have for documentation purposes.

    Great Company with an Engineering-First Mindset

    Sep 21, 2021 - Senior Software Engineer in Indianapolis, IN
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    LifeOmic is a great place to work if you are a driven individual who is not afraid to jump in and start innovating without a ton of direction or oversight. It has a highly collaborative environment but you are expected to take charge of the tasks you are assigned and help shape and define what the final result will look like for the betterment of the project and company as a whole. LifeOmic is poised to start making waves in the Health/Tech industry within the next few years. It has a ton of different product offerings and is all built around a well architected API made up of various microservices. The culture is the perfect blend of nerds, scientists, and product managers that help foster an incredible environment rooted in healthy living and practices and inclusive of all who work there. The work/life balance is excellent and upper management encourages employees to maintain this healthy balance. Benefits are pretty good and the Salaries seem to be on par with the industry standards.

    Cons

    Everyone is expected to pull their own weight and help drive the company towards success. If you are looking for a place where you can just coast then this is not the right company for you.
