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?

    Excellent Growth Opportunities at Parallels

    Pros

    -Excellent life/work balance -Premium/Competitive benefits -Expansive opportunities for internal growth -A clear directive from management/executives -Under Corel, there are constant cross-functional opportunities for those who seek it -Internal culture is friendly and transparent

    Cons

    Many Parallels employees are high-functioning and have high-output for their productivity.

Merging of systems with new acquisitions or internal system changes is difficult to keep up with but it's clear the change is always to the benefit of the employee.
