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?

    Great company, better people

    Pros

    The company culture was stellar, open door to upper management, CEO was often present in our NY office. Genuinely felt like you could talk to anybody and be treated with respect and decorum. The team-building was top-notch too, it was seriously a pleasure working there.

    Cons

    None really, the BDR role isn't exactly a cakewalk but Percolate incentivized us to come in and do our job well with perks, great benefits, unlimited PTO, and more.

    Pros

    - Extremely smart people on the business and product teams - Nice office space in Soho - Great client roster - Opportunity to move up on certain teams - Smart founders who understand the space and can clearly communicate the vision

    Cons

    - No appreciation for employees: we talk about a "Great culture" but the day to day says differently - No transparency or visibility in any capacity of the company; I've been there for a long time and have absolutely no idea the % of shares I own - People leave or get fired and no one is told about it so people walk around asking for this person without realizing they have left - Product is behind the market in many aspects - Sales environment is really, really bad. No leadership at all and you can feel the stress level every day. Feels like a Boiler Room type of environment. - A lot of talented people leaving the company

    Good place to learn

    Pros

    Percolate is a good place to learn software engineering. Because the product is very large and diverse in terms of features, there is a lot of opportunity to gain relevant experience in a lot of tools and technologies, regardless of whether you are in Frontend, Backend, Infrastructure etc.

    Cons

    Often times you may find yourself switching context when it comes to assigned work.

    Mature startup with fun people, relaxed culture

    May 1, 2017 - Software Engineer in New York, NY
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Super friendly people. Lots of office events and group outings to blow off steam and socialize. Big enough that things have calmed down some and there's clearly defined process where there should be, but also small enough that there's not too much bureaucracy and there aren't rules just for the sake of having rules. The company is still experiencing growth and making a lot of money so need to worry about it running out of runway at least in the near term. It feels like everyone is on the same team and working together and across departments, not much politics. If you're scared off by the negative reviews from the past don't be, there was a low period for a little while after we cut down headcount to keep our burn rate under control, but the company's been growing stably since then. I joined after all that had already happened and have seen nothing but great things from Percolate.

    Cons

    Just the usual things you'd encounter when working in a smaller organization. If you need something from another part of the company you might have to be patient because everyone's trying to do as much as possible as quickly as possible but it's a young company so we don't have as many resources as we do aspirations. You might want really want something that'll make your team's life way easier by Q2 but have to wait until Q3 because some other priority came up, that sort of thing.

    Wonderful Experience

    Aug 29, 2016 - Product Designer in San Francisco, CA
    Recommend

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    I was at Percolate for 2.5 years and it was amazing. I spent 1.5 years in the NYC office, then moved to SF to expand my team to the West Coast. I saw the company grow from 80 to 300, and the SF office grow from 5 to 50. It was an incredible growth experience. Pro: People The people at Percolate are wonderful. Everyone is very ambitious, smart, friendly and fun. The team will inspire you, and feel like family. It's awesome. Pro: Vision Noah and James are remarkable founders. Since the day I started, they've consistently shared and updated their vision. It's a solid vision and very inspiring. The company is very focused. Pro: Culture The founders care a lot about culture. From the beginning, they set out to create a work environment where employees can be ambitious, but also be healthy and happy. Everything from values posters to clubs highlight their commitment to culture. Pro: Product Led Since the beginning, the company has been design / product led. It's one of the company values. If you're a product person, you know this counts for a lot. Overall, I'd say Percolate is a fabulous place to work. I highly recommend it.

    Cons

    At this point, the company has a number of offices. Depending on your team and location, you may need to spend time on video chat. Although this is fine for many, it wasn't ideal for some. For me, it was a con.

    Pros

    The people are amazing, hard-working, and smart.

    Cons

    Transparency and communication from the c-suite could be improved. Company allhands meetings were vague and pointless. Office typically empty due to flexible WFH leading to a not very lively environment

    Beautiful product, big ambitions

    Feb 7, 2016 - Anonymous Employee

    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Percolate is looking to define a category. The company wants to do for marketing what Salesforce did for sales and SAP did for manufacturing. The product is really beautiful and is widely used internally. Customers include the best and most recognizable brands in the world (both big and small). It's rewarding to see how customers use the product to create all kinds of marketing campaigns including out-of-home, film, events, print, digital, and social. Culturally, the company has a work hard, play hard vibe. There are dozens of employee organized clubs ranging from Wine Club to Space Club to Run Club and more. The founders value transparency. We have an all-company Monday morning meeting (over video) where different departments share information which many other companies wouldn't feel comfortable sharing (e.g. product roadmap, sales figures, board presentations). The company also has a Friday wins meeting (complete with cocktails) where people give shout outs to recognize other team members. The company lives up to its emphasis on brand. Company produced events and parties are awesome. Beautiful offices, quality swag, and seriously equipped coffee bar. People are smart and driven. They come from a variety of backgrounds including the top enterprise software companies and marketing agencies.

    Cons

    The company is growing quickly and has a move fast attitude. Great for people who like to move fast, iterate, and occasionally change direction. Not a great place for people who prefer the status quo.
