The latest conversations about Tech




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?

      - A lot of opportunity for growth - Podium cares a lot and invests in people management and we have a great leadership team - Great product that helps local businesses. Challenging projects that make work exciting and fulfilling


      - Still in the start-up phase, so things can change fast. This can be both a pro and a con. The con aspect of this is changing focus or changing project requirements after starting on a project can be frustrating. This doesn't happen very often though.

        Podium had some of the most talented people I have ever worked with. The culture was great before the layoffs. The on-site daycare is amazing, and the employee discount is really helpful. Things move so fast that you are definitely going to have opportunities to learn on the job and get promoted into something new in a relatively short timeframe.


        Two layoffs in less than 12 months (12% cut in December 2022, 23% cut in August 2023). Executive leadership is extremely short-sighted and will announce major strategy shifts and then abandon those positions within a few months. The 401k match went away in 2022, alongside a number of other in-office benefits. Eric announced a return-to-office plan which arbitrarily mandated that every employee within 50 miles of the Lehi headquarters must be in the office on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. Mondays and Fridays may be worked remotely (this was held up as an example of flexibility). None of this was based on employee feedback - surveys are largely ignored and one exec actually complained when asked to meet with team members in his department. This company is still reeling from some major changes it made in 2022, and while the leaders will tell you how things are improving, the numbers tell a different story.

      Can anybody share their experience of interviewing at Yelp for a data scientist position?



      I have gone through several interviews (4 so far) for a position within my current company. I would say the interviews were good but I can’t tell if the interviewers were just being polite as I am an internal candidate. HR informed me they will share feedback and “potential next steps” in 10 days as finishing 1st round w/ others. The word potential led me to believe I am being silently rejected and they are waiting for the process to be over to tell me they have chosen someone else. Thoughts?

      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?
