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?

    Incredible Organization

    May 9, 2022 - Sales Manager in Chicago, IL
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    This place will teach you stuff. Not just about IT, of which there are tons of paths to learn here, but about how to effectively run navigate the sales and business world. They have excellent leadership from the top down, and a culture that aims to support, cheer on, and work very hard together. They really know how to meet employees where they are and develop from there.

    Cons

    Because Softchoice sells over 10,000 different IT products, it can be difficult to navigate the individual sales processes for each product they sell. However - the complications around sales processes are actually part of the value proposition to customers. They're unable to navigate this on their own, and need and organization like Softchoice to help them.

    Software Company that uses

    Sep 30, 2022 - Customer Service Representative in Seattle, WA
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    None really, was one of the worst jobs I've ever had.

    Cons

    I love to partake in a happy hour/party when appropriate, but the Seattle office is so Alcohol/partying centric both at work and outside of work, it was really uncomfortable. If a Work Hard, Play Harder/Hardest is your MO, than it it maybe for you. For a software based company, use systems for internal use that are so hold it should be criminal.
