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

Skillsoft is the world leader in compliance, leadership, and technology training and upskilling. High achievers will thrive in the mission-driven, fast-paced environment.

The organizational culture is transforming in real time... Again, High Achievers will LOVE working at Skillsoft!

    If you want to resist change, stay in the same old, same old way of doing things or happily hang out and collect a check, please look elsewhere. High Achievers only, please.

    Wonderful Team, Great Work/Life Balance, Limited Growth Opportunities.

    May 11, 2022 - Senior Employee Relations Specialist 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Great HR team, loved working with professionals globally. Wonderful people all throughout, and I believe the leadership to be solid. Very responsible during COVID - didn't require return to the office in the 1.5 years I was there during COVID.

    Cons

    Large (several thousand employees), result of various M&A's, not necessarily a con but creates a lot of noise (for customers getting a segmented product, and employees lots of change management. Rather than being able to focus on developing your people and setting up efficient processes a lot of time and resources are spent integrating. Pretty standard at a larger org and I was looking for a smaller company. For the size it seemed like they could have been more agile. Long administrative processes for the size of the company.

    *Lowest pay in the industry *Leadership is very out of touch with the business, especially since the Global Knowledge merger *There is no transparency in terms of being able to validate commission , and since the merger many sales reps have left due to this issue *Middle management are not helpful and trying to make things better * Total chaos, it's been months and our accounts still have not been assigned correctly in SF.com and the new sales processes are extremely confusing and unclear

    Great team, great company

    Pros

    Team of very professional engineers who are well versed in many aspects of development. Willingness to help when assistance is needed. Continuous learning opportunities across the tech stack.

    Cons

    Everyone is friendly, but as far as the company goes, it seems as though there is little ability to socialize. This is fine for me, but if you are seeking a team where everyone spends time together outside of work, etc. this is the one 'con' I would add.
