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?

    You won't be selling the products that made them popular, Riverbed is Aeternity

    Pros

    Managers are generally not toxic, company will hire you if you're desperate/have no other options, 3-4 months non recoverable draw

    Cons

    1. The company touts 99% placement in the F100 and 95% placement in the F500. They forgot to mention that these are Steelheads/WanOp which no one needs anymore, which lead to Riverbed's bankruptcy 2. Company is pushing their observability platform they acquired, Aeternity, which is a tiny company entering late in an already crowded marketplace 3. Zero BDR/inside sales 4. Zero marketing or brand recognition 5. Zero leads in general 6. Zero partners pushing product 7. Massive turnover at all levels of the org 8. Majority of reps are at 20% or less to quota In short, you're working for Aeternity, a tiny company...not Riverbed.
