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?

    Great out of college experience, but be warned.

    Pros

    - You will learn sales and be able to absolutely succeed in any future sales jobs. - High job security if you work hard (not a meat grinder sales company)

    Cons

    *Painful watching less strategic and less hard working colleagues being handed entire books of business. This happens quite a bit and can be massively discouraging watching people who work half as hard as you handed the best accounts!*

    Pros

    You work for a large company with the ability to give you whatever resources you need to survive without feeling like you work for a large bureaucracy

    Cons

    Most sales support positions are filled by people who put in a year at the sales role. Weren’t good at it or don’t care

    Misleading Management

    Pros

    Huge earning potential if you are on the right team.

    Cons

    SHI is moving quicker than they are prepared for. They made huge changes internally that the customer base was very annoyed by. There is no loyalty as people who worked there for over 15 years were pushed aside for no great reason. Completely left behind my team so they could start a new team and saw 75% of people leave immediately.

    Cold Calling

    Pros

    This company is full of great people, which is why I gave it the score that I did. Lots of fun work parties, good food from vendors, and a solid training program make this a good place to work if you are SELF MOTIVATED. Very easy to do the minimum and slide through the cracks for people that arent self motivated. Potential for making a lot of money here, no salary cap with sales.

    Cons

    Minimum of 50 cold calls a day, you have to generate your own leads, lots of solid cometitors that are hard to compete with, and the cubicle life.

    Pros

    You get a decent base salary and uncapped commission. The environment is fun and competitive. Everyone is very helpful to new reps.

    Cons

    The cons are cold calling all day and they give you a false sense of what people really accomplish. There is good earning power here but they make it sound easy and like everyone does well.

    -Great cultire and work life balance -Comp plan is excellent - once book of business is built six figure income -Surrounded by lots of great people who have the flexibility to be creative and provide feedback to executive management for improvements -Great place to become well versed in multiple technologies

    Pros

    Good People and a fine place to start career in tech sales as you learn about it all. Great educating program Enjoyable atmosphere at times.

    Cons

    "female and minority owned" is shoved down its employees throats at every turn. I wish they'd take a step back from making this a "talking point" to customers and prospects. Little to no real career growth, lateral moves unless going outside the company.. of which, they frown upon advancing yourself with one of their partners. M-i-c-r-o M-a-n-a-g-e-m-e-n-t.

    Honest review from a long tenured employee

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Benefits are good, work environment is good, people are great

    Cons

    Pay is insultingly low for the amount of money the company makes. Shi makes money hand over fist, they literally pay for NOTHING. Any event you've ever attended had been paid for by the vendors. They lowball employees for any kind of compensation unless you're part of the club who have been there from the beginning who all pull in RIDICULOUS salaries. They have driven away all competent employees by constantly hiring new people and driving tenured people's salary down. They are constantly hiring and they'll hire anyone. It used to be that they only hired great people and those people were paid well. Now they hire anyone and pay everyone like crap, even the people who have been here a long time and helped you're company grow. The new people they have been hitting us shocking. Very lazy, underqualified, unprofessional, frankly unintelligent. It is impossible to get fired so these people take advantage and come in late do nothing and it all just falls on the tenured people who actually know what they're doing who are now underpaid because they have to split money with these new people. They give an INSULTING 2-5% (good luck getting 5) increase each year, when standard should be closer to 7-10%.
