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

    The people (rank and file) are awesome.

    Cons

    So many changes the past few years, including top leadership. Apparently the company has been acquired yet again so maybe things have changed?

    Good Company and Team - Unfortunate financial situation

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    I enjoyed working at the company, although only a year. There was a lot to learn and a good support team. The projects kept me engaged and the staff at the office and remote office were friendly and helpful. My skillset did improve to carry over to other careers.

    Cons

    The financial situation was unknown, so there was a dark cloud always over the company as to what will happen next. Multiple layoffs had hit the company before I was there so moral was a bit low. The financial situation did affect my job and others before I could fully enjoy my job and company so that was disappointing. My location became very crowded as they consolidated many offices in one to save money, and didn't have good planning for some upgrades they needed to perform.

    Nexsan is fighting to return

    Sep 28, 2017 - Anonymous Employee 
    Recommend

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    The new management is working hard to return the company to profitability, and is making the tough decisions this requires. The new Unity system looks unique in the marketplace and customers seem to be enthusiastic. The company's emergence out of Imation was an incredibly positive move, as they knew nothing about the data center, storage, or IT. Customers and partners are very loyal.

    Cons

    There have been a series of RIFs on that road to profitability that has been difficult, and resources are limited in certain areas because of it.

    Pros

    The folks, especially the engineers, are great.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, the management is mostly incompetent and doesn't seem to know what it is doing. And, the investors are even bigger idiots. I don't expect the company to survive.
