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 culture - many learning and growth opportunities for fresh grads - many activities and social events - great exposure to different companies and industries - perfect place to start your career if you want to explore different things.

    Cons

    - compensations is not great compared to the amount of time invested, specially for Sr+ - It's very hard to grow beyond Sr. level if you want to focus on a pure technical career

    Good place to build your CV, high delivery expectations and be prepared for a stressed work-life balance

    Sep 20, 2022 - IT Consultant in Stockholm, Stockholm
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    - Industry leader clients / cool assignments - Salary based models - everyone follows the same salary schema for everyone - Lavish after works - Mostly young and talented colleagues

    Cons

    - This is no secret anymore, but Netlight's business model is to hire newly university graduates who are talented and have a good business-sense and sell them as senior consultants and charge clients with huge sums. This is misleading in my opinion, as the consultants are told to exaggerate on their CVs and lies are told to the clients to get these consultants on assignments. - Sales people (ES) at Netlight are sneaky. Even if you are told that you (as a consultant) have a saying on whether you want to go to an assignment or not, they still push you hard and sell you into it. So by end of the day, I felt that I had no saying on whether I want to go on assignment. - You HAVE TO build and maintain a good relationship with the sales team (ES), since they decide whether they would want to give you the "cool" assignment or not! - Even though Netlight has a flat organisation structure, I felt that I was constantly being monitored by more senior consultants. This sense of always being spied on was not a good feeling. - Stress level are usually high at clients since consultants are being sold as the "very best in the industry" and the expectations are on the roof!

    As good as a concultancy can be

    Apr 17, 2022 - Anonymous Employee 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Inclusivity, culture, people, no travel requirement, transparent pay, quick career development if one is proactive and has luck with good projects, events, trying to win over interesting clients, support for young families

    Cons

    Pushing "proximity first" policy too agressively - flexible work models are now a standard and have long been in IT. Mostly geared towards younger generations who are less likely going to question things. Being critical sometimes hard and not welcome. No recruitment of "older" experts (35+). At the end of the day, it's still a consultancy and one may end up on a bad project. Bilabillity is 100% , everythung else - sometimes considerable amount of internal work & events, comes "on top".

    Fantastic Organization & Culture!

    Jan 14, 2022 - IT Consultant in Berlin
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    - Smart, passionate, and nice colleagues with high intrinsic motivation - A very international and diverse team - Super interesting clients & projects -> fast-paced environment makes it possible to see different industries, products and tech stacks relatively fast - Transparent feedback & communication - Transparent Salary Model & Equal Pay - Lots of opportunities to try out different things and develop yourself => Steep learning curve - Very young, agile, and dynamic environment => Can-do attitude & Proactivity - Many opportunities to network (internal initiatives, events, after works, tech talks,...) - The latest technical equipment of your choice (Mac/Windows, Android/iPhone), also for personal use

    Cons

    - 40+ hours per week. Currently not a lot of opportunities for people who would like to work part-time or similar. - The team has grown quite a lot in the last year. The culture is still amazing as the Recruiting Team does an outstandingly great job finding the right people. However, you can see that the more senior consultants have a lot of work to do in interviewing, coaching and mentoring.

    Toxic Management, Brain-washed sales

    Jul 1, 2022 - Software Engineer in Stockholm, Stockholm
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    made of young people mainly, moslty fresh graduates who join after uni, fun socialising spirit great office for gathering after work

    Cons

    1. Sneakily spying on management, organisation plans of their clients through their consultants to use it in their advantage for bringing consultants . You are 'contributing' to the company if you do that. 2. brain-washing culture based on repetition of mantras coming from 'leaders' some old-school manager out of place 3. Not transparent with employees about the seniority level they sell them for. They get paid from the client companies 3-4 times more than what they pay the consultant 3. no work-balance, very intruding/forcing employees to attend company event after working hours(engagemtn part of the performance evaluation)
