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?

    Making wonder customer experiences before it became about the $$$$

    Nov 4, 2021 - Client Experience in New York, NY
    Recommend

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    - fun atmosphere (offices in New York, Portland, Amsterdam, UK, Israel, any client stadium) - lots of opportunity to grow and travel (if you aren't the faint of heart) - clients are awesome some of the best brands in the world

    Cons

    - primary ticketing product is not user friendly (not to be confused with mobile secondary app which is so great!) - reactive hiring structure where company makes little investment (while client onboarding out paces hiring every time) until people are overwhelmed/burnt out - clients require a ton of hand holding from all functions of the business to work - clients are some of the best in the world but use their executive/leadership relationships to - its hard to see great people work 60+ hours a week because it's become a norm to get ahead (the case before and after covid implications) - leadership is inexperienced and at times didn't seem interested in making data informed decisions... just following the $$$$ and constantly putting strains on the teams to fix one-off problems vs. finding or investing in scalable solutions - compensate people better at market and use commonplace industry titles... using made up titles that only carry weight at seatgeek keep compensation reviews and comparisons near impossible track and keep great people underpaid or career limited.

    Toxic boys club

    Pros

    free snacks, ticket perk, that's pretty much it

    Cons

    Rampant favoritism. Inept management. If you're not with the 'in' crowd it will be very difficult to make any meaningful impact or be successful here. (the 'in' crowd is mostly white males in their 30s) SeatGeek tries to make a good show of being a conscientious employer, with a culture of caring about employees, but it's nothing more than show with no substance behind it.

    Exciting year ahead

    Pros

    - Product and technology-driven company - Ticketing/live events industry has rebounded well from COVID. - SeatGeek is experiencing a lot of growth (bigger team and market share) - Smart and hard-working peers - Transparent leadership, even as we navigated a difficult time during CVOID - A lot of ownership and autonomy in your work - Benefits and PTO policy - Flexible remote policy

    Cons

    - Lack of processes, which is being worked on and optimized as we get ready to go public - Work-life balance can be a challenge at times, given how fast the live events industry returned. With all of the hiring we've done, this has been improving.

    Great Work-Life Balance

    Pros

    As a new employee (just over a month) it has been a nice onboarding. While there has been a lot of work to do and learning a lot, it has still been a good balance and I actually get to spend time with my family. Nice offices and good snacks. They put in a good effort for end-of-year events, a mix of virtual and in-person. All the employees have been exceptionally nice and welcoming, which really made me feel at home here quickly. Great benefits and happy they're starting the 401k matching.

    Cons

    None so far but it's only been a month.

    The best place to be in NYC

    Pros

    Love working as part of a fast paced culture that cares about customers and changing the live events industry for the better through technology and a fan first focus. Everyone is collaborative, friendly and willing to help you learn. It's a fun place to work, and also great office location, flexible work environment and offers nice perks like snacks, event tickets, etc.

    Cons

    It's a dynamic industry, which means things change fast and there's always something new happening (I guess that's a good con to have)

    Pros

    love it here - the mission is clear and aimed towards helping more people experience the joy of live entertainment by applying modern technology & engineering practice. the work feels impactful and the culture seems to maintain a healthy balance of laid back and drive.

    Cons

    sometimes the workload can feel stressful, but in my opinion this is a result of working at a fast-paced, high growth company in which employees are exposed to a wide array of challenges. although there can be stressful times and high levels of ownership, I think it's manageable and usually empowering
