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

    * Innovative and uniquely positioned fintech - learnt more here in my first 12 months than in my past 6 years in my previous job * Mission-driven company (solving the "missing middle") with incredible client traction * Incredible opportunity and responsibility given, with ability to grow with the company

    Cons

    * As a growing startup, often doing things for the first time - so requires ability and desire to go beyond scope of role

    Pros

    Proven leaders. White space. Maturing product. Great early customer wins. Salaries good and benefit packages improving. It is fun shaping a new industry. The founders story is compelling and I hope we stick to our core mission to level the playing field for credit decisions to get capital to deserving entrepreneurs

    Cons

    The companies strength is its diversity but this can also cause friction with different cultures and timezones when you are trying to grow so quickly. We used to lack focus but they seemed to have fixed that now.
