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?

    Good team but too many self inflicted wounds from Korea Mothership

    Pros

    Good team. US mgmt team overall is pretty good. Try to make the best mobile GPU to beat Qualcomm and Apple. I think the latest strategy to take on competitor is sound so potential is there.

    Cons

    But G2/Korea mothership keep on changing directions, redirecting resources and cancel projects. They dug a hole so deep themselves it maybe too late for them to catch up to their competitors.

    Not a great place to work relative to other companies in Silicon Valley

    May 20, 2022 - Research Engineer in Mountain View, CA
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    - well known brand within global technology industry - decent health benefits - good at doing research and providing daily autonomy - employee discounts on Samsung products - nice offices, cafeteria and fitness center

    Cons

    - total compensation is much lower than most other silicon valley companies - does not offer similar perks when compared to other silicon valley companies (shuttle buses, social gatherings, personal development opps, community) - human resources has no autonomy to operate making them insignificant - no room for professional growth and development (no upward mobility) - senior management is very slow to make project decisions + new CEO every few years makes it unrealistic to research, develop and bring a new products to market

    Pros

    Nothing to say. location in Mountain View?

    Cons

    If you dream work in silicon valley tech company, you have to run away. This company is not a free culture like Apple, Google. Honestly it has a terrible culture and no process other than local small company. Dispatchers only care about the work which is useless but reveal their position to HQ. They make terrible place and also HQ does. They do not guarantee or make a environment for research at your will.

    Worst possible place to work

    Pros

    Really none. Easy starting point to IT industry because they're always hiring?

    Cons

    Poor salary, promotions based on politics, horrible work & life balance, incompetent upper management, more like a subcontractor design company for HQ, no room for creativity. Avoid if possible.
