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?

- The team in the US is amazing. Qubit is lucky to have formed a team as motivated, talented and diverse. Annnnnnnndddddd that's it.
Management: The management is focused purely on the UK and is incredibly out of touch with what the US needs to be successful. CEO along with most upper level management is barely present in the US. This lack of presence has widen the divide between the UK and the US. Middle level managementle level managementle level management has generally fallen into these roles purely from their length of employment. They have no idea how to manage a team, or create career progression plans amongst other things. However, I think this isn't purely their fault. There is a handful of incredible managers who are trying to go above and beyond for their employees but they are given no autonomy from upper management. Benefits: Compared to the US markets the teams are generally underpaid and a large portion of salary is bonus. Which is fine when the company is in the initial startup growth phase but as the company begins to mature, this compensation structure leads to nothing but friction between staff and Qubit. Secondly, most of the perks that were present when I started have since gone walkabout or greatly scaled back. Career Progression: None. Unsure how to elaborate on this, I think None sums up the situation nicely. Retention: By now this shouldn't surprise you, but the US (I can't speak for the UK) is in all sorts trying to hold onto their employees. Everyone has decided to pull up stumps. Personally, this is the biggest red flag. A SaaS company is founded on good services and a good team, without this, Qubit will only continue to flounder in the US.13

You get a ton of flexibility and autonomy, you get to really lead your role. Management and HR actually care and are constantly trying to push for a better employee experience - this has been really noticeable in 2020 during a tough year. They directly provide you with a budget in your training/growth and your wellness. Every single person I've met at the company is awesome, really friendly and always willing to help (which is really key especially now that we've all gone into remote work). Can't recommend this company highly enough.
They are on the smaller side, and Qubit is a scale up, so the work is fast-paced but if you're into that you'll learn a ton and quickly. At times for the same reason it can feel a little disjointed with a couple processes missing in between but overall you're encouraged to lead any initiatives that could help, so it's what you make of it.1
