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

    Publisher and editors were fantastic in providing feedback, and advice for my career. They also have continued to be excellent references. The work environment, regarding the team, is very positive. Everyone is out helping each other and there is no toxicity even when mistakes are made. The team is very much about learning from mistakes rather than staying with them.

    Cons

    The only downside is the forums can be a place for toxicity. Although technically customers, the subscribers are often harsh on any mistakes and will constantly remind writers of mistakes even a year later. Oftentimes moderators (ourselves) have to step in on forums or comments because of toxicity. Pay was minimal and is not livable in the slightest. This is a great secondary job and in-college job. I would not recommend staying here very long based on the pay I had received at the time.

    Rivals.com in Brentwood, TN

    Pros

    Rivals.com is a very laid-back place to work. You can wear casual clothes and have some freedom. It is very sports friendly, so that is always the topic of conversation. Most employees were friendly and outgoing. The office is very clean and new, and the location is very nice.

    Cons

    The pay was terrible. If you were not a sports writer, then you had nowhere to advance. Upper management doesn't pay much attention to you if you are not in IS or writing for the website.

    Pros

    Flexible hours, updated content management system, good people, fun industry.

    Independent contractor, so compensation may/likely won't include benefits. Many sites in the network, so management's attention may be elsewhere.
