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?

    Experience wasn't bad, leadership has priorities all wrong

    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Overall I enjoyed my time at Similarweb - the product really is good and many people past and present would agree. Many of the colleagues I worked with were also enjoyable and I still keep in touch with some after having left. The org has done a good job of trying to provide people with opportunities within the company (career mobility, training opportunities, etc.), particularly given they put a lot of resources in place when they were still small.

    Cons

    While layoffs are happening throughout tech, I'm not entirely shocked to hear about the ones happening at Similarweb. Many people, past and present, have lost confidence in the CEO. Management has a big focus on data however when they are presented with data or strong arguments that go against their plans, they ignore it and do what they want anyway. For example, there's a strong focus on work/life flexibility in the job market, yet this company increased the # of days required in the office to 4. Like...why? It will only increase turnover and add to employee dissatisfaction. There's a lack of consistency in their processes and they tend to make big decisions without doing their due diligence first. They spent however many millions of dollars opening up a new building/campus and everyone was asking...why? All that money wasted when it could have been thrown into the business in another way. I wouldn't discourage anyone from working here because there are a lot of perks, you just need to know what you're getting into first and if you're okay with what they offer, great, but there are several frustrations within this company that haven't changed, particularly because of leadership.

    Red/Yellow Flags Across the Company, Pains Felt in the US

    Nov 15, 2022 - Enterprise Account Manager in New York, NY
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    -Competitive OTE -Middle managers mostly were promoted from within and have their teams best interests at heart -Sociable and kind colleagues -Work life balance

    Cons

    Where do I begin... -Majority of the US base has very minimal confidence in C-Level executives (cannot emphasize this enough) -Bureaucratic decisions where leadership and Product teams make decisions about the product with very minimal regard for what customer facing employees relay -Product is slow to make effective changes -Sheer disconnect from Israel to the US teams (more so than just time zone differences: work culture in the US/Europe, Diversity and Inclusion, etc.) especially from the CEO and CPO -Management has threatened employees with rationale that is illegal in the US -Oftentimes its the "Chosen Few" who go up for and get promotion while management is not shy of dangling a 'promotion carrot' on other members -Certain teams/orgs are set up for better success than others simply based on the industry they are in, though targets are the same across the board -Management seems to shoot in the dark with how to structure Enterprise vs. Strategic accounts, who works on what, how the 'pods' get paid, etc. They seem to try something new without an actual understanding of what the outcome might be nor how employees think it would pan out. -Israeli leadership has minimal understanding of Diversity & Inclusion practices and does not promote from top down; it always had to come from the bottom up and seemed to always have been met with resistance -Product pricing is never flushed out before they make yet another change to the product, resulting in poor training of salespeople -Heavy reliance on Account Management to be the backbone of revenue generation while Sales team struggles and often sells bad deals for Account Management to salvage -High turnover rate (slew of reasons here)

Diversity and Inclusion
Education is the first step towards fighting bias and intolerance. And during #pridemonth, there are millions of online searches around LGBTQIA+ questions. So, we used our own keyword tool Similarweb to find the top 3 questions, and discovered that thousands of people all over the world are asking: “What does LGBTQ+ stand for?” “Where is gay marriage legal?” “What were the Stonewall Riots?” And who better to answer these questions than our own proud LGBTQ+ Similarwebbers? Thank you to Shilo Arobas, Tim Wentz, Rebecca Moser, Kaitlyn Boehm, Daniel Sonnenschein, and Greg Farrell for sharing your knowledge and perspectives with the world.
