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?

    A Great Place to Work

    Apr 3, 2017 - Anonymous Employee in Renton, WA
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Good benefits. Flexible schedules - getting your work done is what counts most. People love working here and get along very well.

    Cons

    Not too many, actually. Senior management is very reserved and isolated - could communicate more to the employees. Rare to get an update on the business or direction of the company. Most information comes third hand. Company has split off divisions and has sold them. Opportunity for career growth is limited.
