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

    Knowing another language is important especially with today's economy. Many employers are looking for people who are bilingual or are at least conversational in another language that is not English. At FLT, learning a new language for enriching one's life and career is encouraged. If you know about the product, you can sell it more efficiently. The pay rate is also a benefit of working at Rosetta Stone. Connecting with customers is an important part of this job puts you in contact with people from all walks of life. At Rosetta Stone, they are helping people to connect with the world around them.

    Cons

    Commission is directly dependent on how much of the product that is sold. The economy currently if affecting the rate at which commission is received. Basically, if you don't sell, you don't get the larger paychecks. Another downside is that leaving the kiosk for a break like the other stores in the mall, is not an option. You can leave for a few minutes to go to the bathroom or get a quick bite to bring back but other than that you are not allowed to be away for a while. The demonstration video is repetitive and one can only hear it so many times without wanting to turn down the volume. Management below the regional level is in need of a shake up. It is very obvious that there is a disconnect between the store managers and the area manager. Getting recognized for one's hard work is difficult especially when some of the managers act as if the idea was theirs in the first place. The shift is for six hours long and at times the people at the other stores can get on your nerves whether it is their constant complaining about how slow business is moving or how great their business is doing. Sometimes people walk by you just to insult the company. Many people think that you as a sales associate control the price of the product and people will get angry with you for that.

    Teach from home (huge benefit through winters), flexible regarding scheduling & time off.

    Cons

    Leadership does not listen to teachers regarding shaping the curriculum; often times leads to the feeling of selling snake-oil; little pay for language tuition.

    Pros

    Money was good, loved my immediate co-workers. Benefits were good, Maternity/Paternity policy was pretty generous. Things like free beverages were a nice side benefit as well.

    Cons

    Ridiculous hours, terrible work-life balance. Constant overly aggressive forecasting led to missed targets and layoffs. Watching your friends be pushed out the door because Management tried to paint a rosy picture for investors that couldn't be delivered on is no fun at all.
