The latest conversations about Tech




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?

      Business Outlook


      - Great resume builder - Nest is leading in the connected home space - Good products - Incredibly smart and passionate people working on the business (that are not senior management) - The people in middle management and execution are very collaborative


      - 100% internally focused - don't think about the consumer when developing marketing plans, only worry about what the CEO and other Google leadership cares about - Fear based leadership - Meetings, meetings, meetings, meetings and many times, meetings about other meetings - Sr. Leadership are incredibly insecure and not trusting of their employees - Ego driven culture at the top, not open to collaboration or any different points of view - Company culture is severely lacking - though, they are trying to improve this - Overall the senior leadership was hired when Nest was a tiny Silicon Valley start up - the leadership they have in place now is not capable of evolving it into the highly functional, creative marketing team it needs to be. - Commute from SF to Palo Alto - they highly discourage working from the city (or even from the Google SF office) - I witnessed a member of senior leadership ask another member of senior leadership to get their team to write positive Glass Door reviews - so clearly they know that there is an issue with company morale.

    Anyone have any experience interviewing with BASF?


    Marketing Manager

    Went through multiple rounds of interviews for a manager role (Screening, hiring manager, group panel) and yesterday got an email inviting me to the final round with the VP. Only 2 hours after I responded and the recruiter sent an invite for the interview, I get an email saying they “are actually going a different direction for the role”. Upset yet another opportunity yanked away. I emailed back politely asking what happened to cause this sudden change for feedback purposes. Any thoughts (cont)


    Amber Hynes

    Hi, I had an interview Thursday. Back story, I worked with this company a few years ago for 2 years. I ended up quitting, I had applied because they are under new management. I explained to the manager everything that happened etc. She told me that there was high competition this hiring round. After the interview she said if all went well she would contact me with an update. (Yes/no) I reached out Thursday evening but the other manager didn't have an answer. (Check comments for the rest)
