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

    Nice offices, mission driven employees, young vibe

    Cons

    Revenue comes first, users after - this means PMs are at the bottom of the hierarchal chain. Super micro managing - no freedom to make decisions as PMs. So many PMs for each game, promotions pretty much don't exist.

    Fantastic Colleagues, Fun Tasks, Amazing Environment

    Pros

    Every person on staff is brilliant, easy to talk to, and encouraging! You'll really love coming into work and will leave the day knowing you accomplished something good. In my history of employment, I have never worked in a place where I loved working with every person till Playtika Santa Monica. The middle management folks are sincerely supportive of their staff and do their best to help you reach your career goals. The company fosters a true work life balance and assists everyone in living a healthy lifestyle. With that said, not all the snacks are super healthy but there certainly are great options for the health conscious. You will not regret working here and will only ask yourself, why didn't I get my foot in the door here earlier?

    Cons

    Not really many or anything serious. The open floor isn't for everyone and it can at times be difficult to really focus. The sprints are somewhat aggressive, so it can be intimidating for those that can't handle a little pressure. Playtika has an abundance of happy people, along with a good number of intensely nice and ecstatic people, thus, it might not be a good fit for the melancholy. Middle management is also very good, which can be a negative because you don't want them to leave, but that means there really isn't a way to go up the ladder.

    Sharp People & Great Culture

    Pros

    The people at Playtika are, in my consideration, one of the company's biggest assets. Almost everybody hired in the Santa Monica office is extremely capable. Everybody is task-oriented and brings no egos to the table. The culture in the office is really great too - happy hours, twice-a-week catering, and a general stream of work-appropriate silliness abounds. The products themselves are pretty successful too, which helps in terms of job security and company stability. There are usually interesting things to work on, with very few menial tasks. Management seems to have their heads on straight in making good long-term decisions for the company.

    Cons

    Overtime creeps in more often than I think many here would like. While there isn't a culture of overtime, it's used too frequently when plans are made for the future. Communication breaks down from time to time as well, causing occasional confusion and conflicting requirements. Finally, some of the company's efforts to be flexible in planning gets frustrating as there are too many last-minute changes for my taste.
