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

    1) Good product. 2) Many of the people there are excellent (particularly technical people). 3) Pay was reasonable, benefits good. 3) In-fighting between departments mostly stopped over the years.

    Cons

    1) Micro mangement reigned in my department with little appreciation for work accomplished. 2) Poor senior management at the time - most left, however not clear the current is better. 3) Parent corporation not stable (Blackberry)

    Pros

    Cool tech and knowing QNX RTOS open a lot of doors

    Cons

    Some clients and PMs are extremely rude when they get worried about budget and worked hours. Tickets need to be closed fast, as if we could easily rush to debug an issue on the clients project…

    One of the best work places in Ottawa

    Pros

    This is a company and people you can call a family. A ton of down to earth embedded/OS gurus collaborating with you and joking with you. You are a member of a close community chatting about everything from most serious technical problems/innovations, down to cat cuteness daily. This is a place where you willingly give your 100% devotion in every task, and then having dirty jokes with the VP at lunch time.

    Cons

    The senior management needs to screw their head straight.
