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?

    New leadership is taking the company in the right direction. There are really smart architects and engineers working here.

    When started the benefits and culture/environment were great.

    Thoma Bravo completely messed this company up. Way too many cooks. Product is outdated with too many administrative interfaces.

    Pros

    Had some great benefits on paper, some great execution on some small employee benefits (e.g. free food Fridays).

    Cons

    The culture was shockingly a mess and unethical at times - teams didn't work together, cut-throat behavior was encouraged, encouraged leaders to lie to employees to benefit the company, etc. Product was near impossible to make work in any large enterprise...small business fine, but once we started speaking about medium company - it fell down.

    A sinking ship with no lifeboats

    Feb 16, 2022 - Software Engineer 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    People on the ground, the ones doing the actual work, are generally quite nice and pleasant to work with. The bar for performance is set extremely low here, so it's easy to sit back, do the bare minimum, then let others point at a myriad of other issues (see below) as an excuse for low velocity and quality. The company's "vision" for the product 2022 and 2023 is so ridiculously unachievable, there's no stress to actually deliver anything. Executives have been dropping like flies -- CEO, CTO and CPO have all been "exited" in the last 10 months, with no replacements -- so there's plenty of scapegoats. Still fully remote, and you're never required to turn your camera on.

    Cons

    If you think the "pros" are bad... Take every stereotype that follows the story of a Private Equity firm buying a moderately successful software company, only to ruin it completely before ditching it in a fire sale... and multiply all that fun, many times over. Incredibly toxic culture. Executive and Senior leadership consistently refers to people as "resources." General company "strategy" is to hire people at below market rate, then expect those single people to do the job of three people. Turnover is extremely high. When employees and contractors offer suggestions, or raise concerns, or in many cases ask simple questions, they're told to "stop complaining and figure it out." In a recent all-hands, the company announced that "leadership is not going to pay too mention attention to feedback from exit interviews," and they want to focus on "stay interviews" instead. Because sure, people who are afraid to lose their jobs, or just want to stay here and coast, are going to give honest answers, right? Despite everything you'll read in this review, and in other reviews on this site, release scope, timelines, and customer commitments have not changed. Not at all. Engineering has no leadership. And I mean NO leadership, literally. The CTO was fired months ago, and there's still no timeline for replacement. The CCO was put in charge of Engineering for the last few months, because there is no SVP/VP. As of this writing, there is still no executive or senior leadership for Engineering. Half of the Dev Managers have left in the last 3 months. The company's product vision involves grand ideas that no competitors or peers in the industry (most of whom have 2-5x the number of employees and budget of Logrhythm) have been able to accomplish, yet there is regular anger, frustration and blame when Engineering "fails" to deliver on these ideas. Top-performing engineering employees, who have been doing the actual work for the last few years, have been leaving in droves recently, replaced almost exclusively by contractors. Onboarding of these contractors is hilariously brief and incomplete. Testing and QA is basically nonexistent, with just one SDET team responsible for covering 20 dev teams. The entire company transitioned to SAFe by providing only 2-3 hours of optional training on the framework and methods. As a result, every job function and team follows processes differently, and there is no coaching or governance to help with consistency or improvement. The Product Management org has had no leadership for a year, and the Product organization was built from a sales and support background. Decisions on scope, prioritization, requirements, and yes/no answers are extremely difficult to get. The Product Owner org reports through Engineering rather than Product, and are not involved in requirements gathering. PO is largely limited to managing Rally and doing PMO work, because there is no PMO org. The company says that UX is at the foundation of success in the new "next gen" platform, yet like other key functions, the UX org reports through Engineering, has no UX leadership, is understaffed, and has very limited experience with complex or enterprise software.

    Should be ZERO Stars

    Jan 31, 2022 - Senior Software Developer 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Like working for company clearly owned by a giant east coast equity group who intends to sell it as a product or let it fail? Lots to like here. Big paycuts and layoffs at the slightest sign of trouble? You'll be glad you worked here and not some other company which did not do these things to its personnel. Thanks Thoma Bravo! Prefer companies with historically vibrant and supportive cultures that were turned into shambling souless husks after an "acquisition." Your in luck because it's all here! Seriously Thoma Bravo really screwed up a good thing and has a long record of doing so to the software companies they acquire.

    Cons

    - Lack of transparency from Thoma Bravo ownership - Lots of missed business targets and lost customers - Lots of change in company plans - Lots of turnover and abrupt resignations - CEO should run a car dealership instead of infosec company In my time at LR there has been a clear turn from a great place to work in beautiful Boulder CO to one that answers to east coast bankers who strip everything they can. Too much turnover to keep the next generation product development on track... what a shame. It's too bad the owners sold it after I started working here.
