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?

Some good people, opportunities for entry-level positions
Extremely poor management. Biz Dev is primarily cold-calling lists mined from LinkedIn. Existing clients and relationships are scarce. Rylem's product is staffing services which are delivered by a very junior team. Turnover is quite high primarily because employees learn that this is not a company with strong growth prospects unless one is starting from entry-level. If you're reading this it is because you are already working for Rylem, or you are about to turn down an offer. I cannot image anyone who would read through this list of reviews still choosing to work for this company.5Rylem Response9y
We are very sorry to see you go, and hear about your feedback this way. We wish there would have been an active exchange of thoughts during your employment at Rylem, to improve the situation and find a better way to work together. Turnover is generally high in Staffing and Recruiting. This industry is very fast-paced and people move on to new challenges at a heartbeat. “At nearly 300%, turnover in the staffing industry is perhaps the highest of any industry in the nation. In 2013, staffing employee turnover was 263%, down from 294% in 2012—setting a new record low, which had previously been 277% in 2010.” (source: https://americanstaffing.net/posts/2014/10/01/climb-continues/) Please find this article and study, it is very interesting and helpful in that matter. Recruiters at Rylem are doing their best to fill the roles the BDMs bring in to the business. I’m sure you’ve worked just as hard as we do, and yet haven’t found the success at Rylem you sought. We wish you all the best in your future endeavors and hope you find a company and role that brings you happiness and a successful career!
