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

    Great health benefits, 401k match, great work/life balance, and chance to grow in an exciting field. They have set it up to attract top tech-talent and it shows, each new employee brings amazing skillsets to the team. New office location in downtown Bellevue is very nice as well.

    Cons

    Still in midst of large changes including split of 2 other companies - Plesk and Virtuozzo. Can be chaotic.

    Awesome people to work with, a can do attitude, and they're all about helping each other out. Work life balance is great. Benefits aren't bad either.

    Pros

    Good team of people with passion to do things Good exec team from the top of IT industry companies Good support from managers and colleagues Workable career opportunities for those who are pro-active and want to grow Fabulous HR Team support – they are always willing to help Fantastic corporate events Friendly culture and environment Not bad compensation and benefits package, competitive to the market (higher than average, somewhat around 75%)

    Cons

    Internal communications could be improved Work/life balance is still area for improvement (time zones difference lead to late calls) Office in Moscow could be closer to the downtown
