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?

    Workplace Politics Are Out of Control

    Feb 24, 2023 - Director 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Highest 401K match compared to competitors Some really great people at the operational level (below director roles). These are the people who enabled me to stay for as long as I did.

    Cons

    C-Level either chooses to ignore or has no clue how uncollaborative cross functional teams can be. It was a challenge to make any forward progress for agility and improvement, however there were questions almost daily on how the bottom line would be improved. Technology and automation for basic day to day project management is almost non-existent with no clear plan on how this would be addressed long term. My direct manager micromanaged every detail, to the point I could no longer make any decision pertaining to one of the company’s largest accounts. Hands down the worst manager I’ve had in my entire career. During my tenure, my manager never once spoke to me about growth or development and never provided feedback on my performance. I was thrown under the metaphorical bus several times by a few different people in their attempt to make themselves look good.

    Pros

    Diverse workplace where you can get good experience and is relatively low stress.

    Cons

    Low pay negotiated with major client leads to high turnover and vacant positions. Lots of times this means employees will be pressured into working two jobs instead of one until the opening can be filled.
