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?

    Pros

    Great people to work with and for. Strong sense of Team and unified vision for the company. Finally have a mission statement and clear sense of vision. Executive Team loves their company and want to be around to help it grow in a strong and meaningful way that can provide careers for us long-term (instead of grow as fast as you can to sell). People at MasteryConnect are creative, supportive, approachable and encourage you to speak up and reach out.

    Cons

    Still feel some effects of previous selfish and poor management that caused the 2 RIF's.

    New Direction / Still A Great Place to Work

    Pros

    Business has gone through some big changes over the last year which have been tough on all of us, but the end result is a refined and simplified product roadmap and company vision and a clear path to sustainability. There are really good people here who largely care just as much about the mission of the company (help teachers improve student learning) as they do about helping the company succeed financially. Competitive pay and amazing benefits. Work life balance is better than before but still very busy.

    Cons

    Still figuring some things out, trying to operate efficiently with a smaller team, but missteps are probably a normal part operating a newly restructured company

    Pros

    Nothing. But really, nothing. The MasteryConnect that once was could be considered the best place in town. Now? Not even close.

    Cons

    Even after leaving the company they continue to bad mouth and bother previous employees. Actually, the bad mouthing is shared with current and previous. It's like that crazy ex-girlfriend you just can't shake.

    Terrible Management

    Feb 13, 2017 - Anonymous Employee

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Salary is ok. Health insurance is good. The hours are good.

    Cons

    The product is not very competitive anymore and salespeople are struggling to get new customers. The morale is very low, and there is very little communication. The elephant in the room is the management team. They are the worst I've worked for. It's impossible to trust them because they are so negative, and arrogant. They talk bad about people that leave. Many employees are looking for other jobs.

    Miss it

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    I truly loved working for MasteryConnect. It felt like there were huge opportunities for growth for me individually, and the company encouraged that growth. My coworkers were bright and great to work with. Great amenities, equipment, office and benefits. Inspiring product. It was probably the most exciting place I've worked, and I felt it important for others to know that.

    Cons

    Despite claiming to be transparent and not reporting much negative news, the company was forced/decided to lay off over half of it's employees in 2016 over two separat RIF, and I still don't fully know what happened. Even the CEO was voted out by the board, so I can't offer any outlook on where it will be going. I always had a feeling that it was "too good to be true", and that turned out to be right.

    Pros

    Work was rewarding with knowing that what I did directly helped teachers and students. Co-workers were excellent, positive people who I loved working with. Lots of good benefits/perks (unlimited PTO, nice computers, snacks. etc). Very open work environment that allows freedom to explore and try new things that can improve the product.

    Cons

    Like a lot of the recent reviews state, it has become apparent that there were/are a lot of issues with company management. The founders had thought they'd work on MasteryConnect for several years and then sell it off to move on. While I definitely don't understand all the intricacies of their goals, it does seem like they are still trying to figure out what to do now that it hasn't sold. They speak optimistically about it's future, but I think for most employees, there is a lot of uncertainty.

    Management Needs a Revamp

    Pros

    This is an awesome platform that can have a tremendously positive impact on schools and districts. There are a lot of very passionate people who are dedicated to the success of the company (but those people are fading out).

    Cons

    - Massive layoffs over the past year; 2/3 of employees have been let go or have left the company. - Most of the leadership team lacks leadership skills and are not utilizing, valuing, or recognizing employee contributions and skill sets. - Strategic, long-term product vision and project plans are not being developed (or just not being communicated with staff). - LOW morale. - Lack of cross-functional team collaboration. - Bugs and product issues not being addressed in a timely manner (also not strategically).
