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?

    Strong company with relentless improvement mindset

    Pros

    Probably one of the best remote work models - giving you freedom with focus on office collaboration rather than a strict presence like 60/40 etc. Work-life balance -there are peaks and valleys, but overall well balanced. Rich training opportunities and upskilling options Clear career path, which if you have the proper skills can climb quite fast Amazing Flex benefits model - you chose what you need A wide array of different projects in terms of methodologies, business domains and complexity.

    Cons

    Sometimes you need to switch projects really fast, but that's kind of understandable considering that it is an IT Service oriented company with strong business diversity

    Pros

    Not much pros to be honest

    Cons

    They don't have any good management. The managers don't care, don't know and the criteria for promotions is very vague and even if you have it they can still not give it to you

    Pros

    Can offer different project/technology opportunities to employees Gives junior software engineers a chance to grow Tries to follow good software development practices Most colleagues are bright, open to collaborate and positive

    Cons

    Lower salaries compared to other software development companies People might be forced to change projects very often or against their will Laid off a lot of people in 2020 due to the COVID-19 situation Fundamental company changes are sometimes taken too often without the previous one being finalized and it creates chaos
