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?

    Extract every penny they can and dont care about your future

    Pros

    They have nicely structured heirarchy.

    Cons

    I tried to summarize all the cons of working with Marlabs at their Piscataway location. First they take a percentage of your pay, starts by 40% that’s right they take 40% of your income, and gradually decreases to 20% over 1-3 years. Even 20% is too high just for filing H1B once in 3 years and running payroll. Even if you work for 100 years the 20% wont go down. Then on top, they individually deduct taxes to be paid by the employer for Social Security, SUI, SDI,FUTA, and on top they do another 8% for payroll taxes, 2$ per hour as admin charges. If all this separate deductions are there then why take 20% of the pay too?? After you leave they harass you to make sure you don’t join the client that you worked for when you were under their employment and harass you for money if you do. They are not interested in your success, they only want to see how much money they can extract from you. Bonus pays are delayed. (BTW the bonus is part of your regular pay which for some reason they withhold for 3-6 months and now because they pay it as bonus you basically pay more taxes on it.) During Covid they withheld bonus payments for almost a year. You need to wait for minimum 2-4 months after leaving to get final pay and relieving documents. If you leave within a year of joining you need to pay 9k (for the so called student training that you get) even if you were on bench and they are unable to place you. No paid leave, No 401k match, High Insurance costs. Most big vendors will not work with them directly and now because of this your pay needs to go through a pass through vendor who will take an additional 5-10%.
