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?

- Hires smart people - Great IC teammates - Interesting and motivating mission - Lots of opportunity for DEI work - Values show folks are trying to do the right things
- Product can’t keep up with mission. Very uncomfortable position for teams as they try to build and sell - Leaders repeat same mistakes expecting different outcomes - Everything is a fire drill. Employees live through poorly managed active incidents in direct opposition to what company tells its users to do - Turnover and re-orgs interrupt any momentum teams are able to build - No real career development beyond the trainings they mandate for managers for internal processes - Leadership plays favorites and ignores bad behavior - Good people get burnt out fast - Leadership is extremely out of touch and in the way - Zero trust of employees = multiple layers of approval on decisions and wasted cycles - Extremely slow, tedious and complicated internal processes that get in the way of innovation and block the course of business - Lack of accountability creates stress for teams and partners. Difficult to maintain positive business relationships - Values are some of the best I’ve seen and put into action more than most. Unfortunately only applies to the contributor layer or certain teams. Leadership rarely sets a good example. - Massive gate keeping. Lots happens behind closed doors leading to shady behavior and toxicity9PagerDuty Response3mo

The base salary, the ESPP, the co-workers
There are a number of negative reviews that are largely accurate. Inexperienced and toxic sales managers. Last minute fire drills. Constant shift in focus that results in lost momentum. Strong in the small enterprise and mid-market space. The biggest problem is the growth opportunity for sales reps. PD Process Automation (Rundeck) is a 7-10 year old open source product that the open source community left behind because Ansible won. Ansible is better and cheaper. Trying to become a multi-product company on the back of PD Process Automation isn't going to work. Other problems include: No channel to speak of. No real partnerships to speak of. Unrealistic expectations for sales reps. The customer base is mostly SMB, Mid-Market, and Small Enterprise. The competition from IBM/RedHat and ServiceNow, even potentially Atlassian, in the ITSM and Automation categories is too much to overcome with so little momentum at this point with PD Process Autionation. When the company makes a rep's quota a customer's problem, the company doesn't care about customers anymore. The company has strayed from it's core values. This can only be rectified at the top.11

Great salary. PagerDuty core product is great.
Too much pressure to cross sell non PagerDuty core products. Fire drill each month to fill out new forms sr leadership wants. Seems like mgmt doesn’t know what the bell they are doing and guessing. If a bigger deal closes they cling on trying to repeat that.2

Great product, leadership team is really strong, lots of opportunities for career growth through internal programs or cross-job training.
It can be challenging to help keep our sales teams and customers up to speed on the latest with the product1
- 4.0May 26, 2023Technical Support Specialist IIFormer Employee, more than 1 year
The Technical Support team was amazing. Consistently great mid-level managers who actually cared about your career. Company events were fun and usually included a volunteering event. Pay was great.
As soon as the company reached profitable, they did major layoffs. Not a good look. They replaced the North America Technical Support Specialists with folks from Chile and Argentina (who are delightful people; we got to help train our replacements and it wasn't their fault they were replacing us). Not enough time or support for professional learning opportunities, since being understaffed was kind of the norm. Lots of meetings that could have been emails.5

- remote work accommodated - core product (incident response) stacks up to competitors well - depends on team, but generally you have autonomy over your work
- some teams have changed dramatically, customer support and success aren't of the quality they used to be and don't work well with others - some executives do not understand what our product is or does - there's an identity crisis at PD, people buy the product for incident response but the focus on other product areas is sometimes overemphasized.8

Filled with smart, great people who care, Low egos. An amazing inclusive culture. CEO that cares about diversity. Awesome product. Global company. Lots of flexibility.
Some organizations don't know about the Operations Cloud and what we do.
