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?

The product is used by the Devs and IT groups of other companies, so customer bug reports are much easier to read. The customers make buy-or-reject decisions according to highly-technical standards.

Nearly all process is improvised, everyone is in 'immediate' mode where things are done on a basis of who can grab who at any moment. This is despite the fact that it is an enterprise software company that is supposed to produce reliable and stable software. If word gets around that you are competent, then everyone will immediately try to pull you into everything. The top talent seems to inevitably leave, sooner or later. It's one of those kinds of environments.Continue reading
