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?

    It's truly a great place to work with great people and a great culture

    They have been hampered by their debt. The recent debt for equity exchange is a move in the right direction. Hoping that changes moving forward under new ownership.

    Was a fun and exciting place 7 years ago. Lots of great people through the doors, there was a great culture of hope, hard work, and courage.
