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?

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Cares a lot about quality, pays good attention to feature set functionality, bugs fixes, and store reviews as well as overall rating. Willing to put resources into new areas such as VR, health, competitive features.

    Cons

    Hours can be elongated working across teams in very different locations, including Headquarters in South Korea. Often last minute requests that have to be addressed same day between 13 hour time differences regardless of overall priority and significance can be hard on a project and team.

    You can gain resume points to get a good job

    Feb 2, 2021 - Field Sales Manager in Chicago, IL
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    *You get familiar with deep diving into data and how to communicate that data and create an action plan from that data so if you want to get into account management you will definitely learn a lot *You get experience in territory management and everything that comes with that *Benefits are great and you get random high end gifts through out the year If you want experience and a good company on your resume this is the job for you, however just know that you won't get promoted, but you will learn things for your next career choice.

    Cons

    *Definitely a puppet to Korea and it doesn't work for the American clientele * Its clear the position is going away so job sercurity anxiety is always on everyones mind * Theres no path to promotion. Doesn't matter who's hands you shake, or the amount of work you put in they just make it impossible

    Not for the ambitious; mediocrity = staying power; no progression opportunities

    Jan 16, 2021 - Senior Manager, People Team in Jersey City, NJ
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Decent pay... not much else.

    Cons

    No clear vision. Constant Executive turnover. Korea HQ dictates local decision making often in mind-numbingly senseless ways. Largely unintelligent / non strategic workforce. Limited promotional opportunities. Constant bickering among functional HR leaders. Poor office culture. Building/office amenities are straight from the 80s. Constant layoffs / poor job security. And lastly, for a leading consumer electronics company, the IT and technical device/solutions are worst in class.

    Many of the reviews are fluff to improve rating. RUN AWAY from this company.

    Sep 26, 2020 - Senior Manager in Plano, TX
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Benefits. I'll type "benefits" again because that's the only positive.

    Cons

    Literally the worst culture and working environment. Everyone only serves Korea. Work long hours on unproductive projects. Everything is to appease VPs and Korea. Top talent does not last as high performers are only taken advantage of constantly. HR is also useless. They are aware of issues but act as if they can't affect change.
