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

    The majority of people are nice. Free lunches, snacks and beer. Good health benefits.

    Cons

    The sexism noted in other reviews is absolutely true and will likely not improve. Racism by managers is tolerated as well along with blatant lying for the purposes of manipulation. There is a "blame the employee" response when inappropriate incidents occur. If you read the "carefully crafted" responses to other bad reviews, there are quite a few "you should have done x" and "our value is this so it wasn't us" built in. I was treated very poorly by several levels of management during my time here and nothing was ever done about it despite documentation and attempts at having conversations. It is also very difficult to advance ones career at Spokeo despite doing measurably good work.

    Pros

    They had free food and pingpong

    Spokeo Response

    Director

    Thank you for sharing your experience working at Spokeo. We’re sorry that you didn’t regard it as being more positive. That said, we welcome all feedback and are committed to making changes to ensure that all teammates can thrive in our environment. To the point about change, it has been almost 2 years since we’ve had staff in the Spokeo offices. We’ve shuttered the cupboards and the ping-pong table, and Nintendo has been super quiet. However, the good news is that we currently have a tentative office reopening date in January 2022. As a byproduct of the pandemic, we’ve also shifted to a flexible work location policy. For those that wish to come to the office (whether regularly or on occasion), there will be health and safety protocols in place, and they’ll be welcome to grab a ping-pong paddle and some snacks! We have also remodeled the place (with COVID realities in mind), more conference rooms, more space to relax or focus, and the list goes on... Spokeo has also implemented other changes: we’ve moved from simple performance goals to having OKRs that cascade throughout the organization. With a new tool to track and measure results across the various teams, we’re finding that OKRs are optimal for setting directions and allowing individuals and teams maximum flexibility to determine how best to achieve them. We hope everyone enjoys where they work, the people with whom they work, and are helping their organization’s culture be strong and inclusive. We think the changes we’ve implemented in the last few years will help us make significant strides in these areas.
