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?

Project Manager Intern at QubitApr 18, 2017 - Project Manager in London, EnglandRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
- Amazing team spirit: people at Qubit are just great. - Startup culture: although Qubit was turning into a more mature tech company, there was still great leftovers from its original startup vibe: free food and other perks, great social life in and outside of work. - Fantastic learning opportunities: Working with Analysts, Strategists, Client Engineers and Designers, I learnt how to use SQL, Photoshop and even got to code a bit! - Decent salary for a first internship in London :)
- Long hours: work finishes at 5:30 but no one leaves before 6-8. - Distant management: I was given a lot of autonomy but didn't get a lot of feedback if I didn't ask for it. - Corporate transformation: a lot of restructuring and recent changes in company practices affected the overall atmosphere negatively. - Low career prospects for Client Engineers - this is something I've witnessed and heard a lot about, not experienced.Continue reading

Engineering at qubitDec 18, 2015 - Software Engineer in London, EnglandRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Qubit is the best place I've ever worked. Full to the brim of smart creative people and perhaps even more rare is the great leadership. By that I mean its an engineering led culture where talent thrives and you are given lots of autonomy and ownership. They value the right things. Flexible hours, regular 121s with founders and team leaders. Probably the best thing though is the opportunity to work on such interesting and challenging products and services, with programming challenges that make other jobs pale in comparison. We also have a lot of fun. The stats team recently built a table football slack integration that manages player rankings through some bayesian model and even features a predictive analytics engine.
Some people prefer a more corporate and regimented/structured culture in which case Qubit probably isn't for them. Its pretty dynamic and more of a startup like culture.Continue reading

Disappointing experienceAug 15, 2017 - Anonymous EmployeeRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
- Great people - Interesting industry and product roadmap - Solid client list
- After the 'restructuring', business shifted from being people-first to be revenue-first.. and people became overworked as morale/motivation sank - Constantly pivoting the company's value proposition, product is always over-stretching themselves to launch new instead of fix old - No progression, your title may change but your responsibility will not - Minuscule pay rises that only happen on promotion - Mid level management has no experience - A lot of self-serving people running the show and those who shout the loudest get credit/recognised; which makes it toxic for othersContinue reading

great people and great technology that can open many doors for current and potential clients
lack of positioning in the market and a changing landscape make it difficult to draw the right amount of demand

Great company. Proud to be part of such a fast-moving, energetic team.Apr 4, 2016 - Uk Sales in London, EnglandRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
- The people are great. I've never worked in a team before with so many like minded people. It makes working far more enjoyable. - The company strategy & vision is exciting and makes everyone want to work hard and see success. - The perks are fantastic. Free food (breakfast, lunch, dinner), subsidised gym membership, yoga, social activities (ski conference, Henley), lunch & learns, which all really have a positive impact on company culture.
Very few to name. Qubit is an agile, energetic company and so changes happen fast. Be prepared to work hard and move quickly.Continue reading

Amazing people with freedom to exploreApr 1, 2016 - Anonymous EmployeeRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Some of the best developers and non-developers I've ever had the pleasure of working with. Exploration of ideas and technologies is encouraged to make sure we go down the right path in the long term, something many companies see as a waste. Lots of coffee, get togethers and friendly conversation with people from every corner of the company. Everything is moving fast so you have to keep up and learn fast, but it'd be boring if that wasn't the case. I think the work / life balance for most people here is pretty great too, despite how much we get done.
There really aren't many, this is the best place I've worked (after ~5 different software shops of varying sizes). Sometimes it can feel like everything (including code) is moving a little too fast to keep up with, unless you're getting yourself in the right meetings and pouring over every PR. I sometimes feel like the things I'm considering working on are completely alien again, even though I knew about them weeks or months ago. To be honest, it's probably a good thing and symptomatic of a company adapting to change quickly and effectively. So the whole "move fast" thing is a pro and a con here. It's great if you're keeping up, but the changes can be a little overwhelming if you don't, which applies everywhere, I feel.
