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?

    I have to stop talking about how much I love my job around my friends

    Pros

    - Fantastic product that addresses real pain points for customers - Co-workers that are well vetted in the interview process for having a great skill set, but also a great mindset - A culture that embraces feedback, empowers teams and individuals to have an impact - providing ample opportunities for self-development

    Cons

    No place is perfect of course, but the time, effort and resources invested by the company in maintaining the excellent standards make it clear they walk the walk. They are not afraid to take feedback and adjust. They always care to do what makes sense. I don’t know that I could ask for more.

    A place that truly cares

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    There are few companies where you can say that your colleagues feel like family. Not only does Sonar care deeply for it's products, it cares deeply for the human factor that goes into creating them. They work hard to not just hire the best, but hire those that can work harmoniously together and actively work to build each other up. Additional pros: - Strong leadership that works hard to ensure each individual's success - Great benefits, compensation, and generous PTO - No office drama llama - Solid products that sell themselves - Great WFH policies - The ability and encouragement to go to the HQ in Geneva - Every person is helpful - True friends, not just colleagues - Catered lunches! - Gosh this list is getting long...

    Cons

    Very very very few cons at Sonar. Minor cons: -More transparency from leadership on coming changes

    Pros

    -Great Work Life -People and Culture -Leadership and Middle Management are Grade A -Team atmosphere -Loved Product -Great Time off -Competitive Compensation -Annual Trip to Switzerland (HQ) If something is not working, SonarSource is quick to change! This was a great professional experience that I would recommend anyone to consider.

    Cons

    -Flat Organization with slower upward mobility (Although not a con for some). If you are a ladder climber this may not be the right fit -No Stock Options Other than these two points, which may not be cons for all, I have no complaints

    I can't say enough good things

    May 3, 2021 - Account Manager in Austin, TX
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    - Deep care in employee growth and job satisfaction. - Considerate and thorough interview process. - Very competitive pay. - Clear expectations communicated and path to success is simple. - Incredible culture - enough structure to feel supported, enough freedom to make a measurable impact. - Transparency in almost every part of the business. - High value placed on humility and open, honest feedback. - So many employees from different corners of the world with different experiences - there are great ideas that are brought to the table as a result. ....I can't say enough good things.

    Cons

    I'm definitely drinking the kool-aid here. It's difficult to find something I don't like. And when I do, SonarSource wants to hear feedback, take the time to explain why things are the way they are, and also seeks ways to improve. It's unique and special to find a company growing this fast and still placing emphasis on these things. I will update my review in time if things change, but all good things so far.

    Unique place with unique constraints

    May 3, 2021 - Anonymous Employee in Geneva
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    * Great work/life balance and job security * When compared with most companies out there, you can have a voice here regardless of your position or seniority. * Great product driven by a winning strategy, generating impressive growth * Fair remuneration * Safe environment * People is truly open to constructive criticism and naturally embed it into healthy teamwork

    Cons

    * The promoted team-based culture with delegative leadership clashes with reality: as the company scales, CEO and Team Leads adopt a more hierarchical approach and keep most strategic decisions solely on their side. * You are still supposed to act autonomously and decisively. Guessing what you are entitled to do and not to do without your team lead's/CEO approval may grant you occasional reprimand. * While everyone has a voice, some count more than others even at the same position level (most often based on years and connections in the company). Guessing this hidden power network can be tiring and frustrating. * Since the culture promotes a company with very few levels of hierarchy and there is an aversion to job titles, there are very limited growth opportunities that you could leverage for your long-term career. The job market likes titles with clear responsibilities, SonarSource doesn't. * Many decisions need to go through CEO * No salary negotiation and no equity for employees
