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?

      Parallels enjoys high brand recognition in its run windows on mac, control panel, and hosting automation target markets.


      Can its collection of acquired products scale to meet market requirements?

        Parallels is definitely the best place to work at. Started working there as a junior support engineer with literally no experience and grew up to a chief support engineer in 4 years gaining huge variety of skills. Working at Parallels you get: - Awesome people to work with - Interesting and challenging job. Working as a 'simple' technical engineer you gain serious skills of a system/infrastructure architect. - Wide career opportunities including relocation all over the world - Endless field for improvement. Innovations and personal projects are highly valued by management - Lots of benefits as gym, corporate transport, food, health insurance, certifications


        Despite all the pros there are some cons: 1) Working as a Support Engineer you have to work 4 days a week - 2 night shifts and 2 day shifts. People who cannot change schedule easily might have a hard time working in support. 2) Stress. If you deal with clients you have to be prepared to get some stress. Either you become immune to stress and angry customers, or you'll eventually burn out. Working night/day shifts doesn't really help your mental health either. Besides these 2 points there is a last, but not least one. Some might consider it a pro, but I think it's a "con" after all. it is difficult to move on. Parallels is such a nice place to work at you will not wish to leave even if your career demands new challenges, some people decide to stop growing and keep doing the same job after many years without any intention to change anything. It's too comforting to stay there.

      Interview Tips

      Feel free to post any interview questions you might be asked and I’ll help you compose an effective response :)



      I finished third round of interviews but realized there’s an experience that isn’t on my resume (since it’s not directly related to the jobs I’m applying for) nor did I mention it in the interview process, but it would actually be great for me to leverage and demonstrates a relevant skill for the role. Is it worth emailing and dropping a quick note about it, or should I leave it?

      I have a supply chain & inventory manager interview coming up for a museum. Can anyone provide me some insight on what questions I should be prepared for? What key points to highlight during my interview? Any tips and advice is appreciated!



      I finished final round interview. Should I send a thank you letter to everyone or only to people where I have something interesting to add on. I interviewed with the hiring manager twice already and sent thank you emails. He never responds, should I even bother to send him one more since we talked again in the final round? HR said I wouldn’t hear back until late next week earliest. It sounds like they still have to wrap up final rounds with other people. I don’t want them to forget me.
