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 people, great senior leadership, management weak

    Pros

    I love the people at Pure Storage. As a bunch they tend to want to do the right thing, are hard working, and play well with others. Executive Leadership is strong. The company's future is also strong - we do data storage very well.

    Cons

    Many managers at Pure just don't know how to manage including not understanding how to empower, enable development opportunities, etc. Several were promoted from within only because of tenure or charm vs. actual skills. Many of them still micro manage which doesn't inspire or help people do their best work. HR is trying to help management grow but it seems to be a very hard shift.

    Pros

    The culture and level of talent at Pure is top notch. I valued each and every one of the professional relationships I made there. Everyone in my engineering group could have gone off and founded their own companies, they were that good.

    Cons

    Some cost cutting was not cool, due to market pressure and focus on keeping margins high. It's the price of being a publicly traded company, we have to answer to the shareholders.
