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?

    Pros

    Exciting, game-changing technology. Team collaborative culture among peers.

    Cons

    IT professionals assume if they've seen one HCI product, they already know all they need to know about SimpliVity. SimpliVity is vastly different than other HCI.

    Interesting technology and great people.

    Cons

    They let too many people walk that were vital to Support. They have yet to "make" it up to those that remained.

    Good company with unique culture prior to acquisition

    Recommend

    Pros

    SimpliVity positioned itself as a startup driving towards an IPO for several years. It was a company with a unique culture driven by the CEO who was very process oriented and a believer in hard work. Some employees were expected to work long hours during the week and to be available all weekend. "Fun" was never part of the equation, but employees were motivated by the desire to be a leader in the hyper convergence technology space. I cannot speak for the culture after the company was acquired by HPE, but have heard from others that once the CEO left it was no longer the same company.

    Cons

    Even when it was pretty clear that an IPO was not happening, the senior management team continued to state that it was driving to an IPO. Some employees felt betrayed even if this was the best possible outcome at that point.
