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

    - Having spent almost a year until now in the company, I can say that Spotware is one of the most exciting jobs I've ever had. For sure working in the fintech industry can be tough and challenging but let's be honest. Like in every other company you have to show results, and results in Spotware are rewarded and you also become a vital part! Having said that there is also career Growth in Spotware! - As a company, Spotware is a multi-cultural workplace with people from different countries. - The company also offers daily fresh fruits and pizza every Thursday.

    Cons

    - There is not enough space in the lunch area for all employees and for sure an extra coffee machine is needed.

    Not a decent employer

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Some nice, highly qualified colleagues

    Cons

    Not a decent employer. Here’s why: Absolutely no stability; Policies are introduced and cancelled within a few weeks (work from home, expenses & claims, etc.) Employees are terminated on the spot without any notice or explanation. Sometimes right after they’ve relocated to Cyprus with their families. Salaries are increased/decreased without specific criteria or structure. No performance reviews either. There is no communication between the teams and management. Decisions are made and employees are often not informed of important changes. Serious issues with management behaviour. CEO has the emotional capacity of a toddler - can throw a tantrum at any given moment, yell at you and insult you. Management considers daily insults in an open space, or even in writing a decent management tool. HR: crazy turnover there, nobody seems to cope with management. There’s a new team every couple of years. Note that confidentiality is not respected in any way. Any benefits other than salary are viewed as ridiculous and pointless. No 13th salary, no expense policy or any benefits that similar companies offer. Salaries are not competitive either. No diversity at all - almost all employees are male, aged 25-40 and come from Russia, Ukraine and Belarus. Women and candidates from other countries are considered “lower quality” and locals are mainly for admin work. Sexism (and even harassment) is not addressed in any way. An entire wall of the office is “decorated” with photos of naked models and has been there for years, despite several complaints made. Old furniture, torn couches, dirty toilets and a teeny tiny kitchen for about 80 people. Low air quality (employees even brought their co2 detectors to confirm this). No company culture, very few events, no learning & development initiatives and lots of sour faces. Overall, not the best option for an employer - if you’re coming to Cyprus, there are far better choices.

    Awful company - not recommend

    Pros

    Salary was paid on time, you can always leave the office exactly at 18:00.

    Cons

    New 'head' management is just so bad! You will feel underrated all the time, you will get no normal feedback about your work, you won't feel any team-spirit ever here. Everyone from 'head' management are just trying to cover their nuts. They can tell you one thing in-person but immediately change their mind if the main boss has another opinion. So be ready to stay alone with your ideas and only do what they say with your mouth shut and of course without any support.

    Pros

    no any pros at all

    Cons

    - russian management with all related approaches to business - you can get a penalty if you drink coffee in the kitchen during working hours - CEO smoke in the office - CEO rejects all activity related to people's mental health and good atmosphere in the office - CEO hires employees to c-level positions on nepotism - micromanagement - photos of naked women around the office - no performance review. they will raise your salary only if you come with an offer from another company - low salary rates - company fired some ppl from Ukraine in March 2022 with no reason explanation - if you are a woman - you will always feel emotional and sexual harassment from the management side - everyone speaks Russian. Not a good choice if you want to work in English speaking environment - no diversity at all!

    Pros

    Ability to grows, good working environment, competitive salary.

    Cons

    Sometimes you have to deal with last minute 180 degrees changes. Teams granularity can be a problem when it comes to negotiate about the way to build a new feature. Office is a one big openspace, which can be a problem for some.

    If you are lucky, you could intercept with cool people there, but it does not go to the company itself. Thursday Pizza. Can’t recall anything else.

    Cons

    No corporate culture, no processes, no career growth or salary increase, arrogant management, micromanagement, dictatorship. Cats in the office, it could be the problem for those people with allergies, also the office itself is not fine place for work.

    Thank you for sharing your feedback. It's unfortunate to read that your experience with the company is low ranked. However, in the last 6 months, the company improved in many aspects listed as poor in your review. For instance, a salary review process is regular and transparent. Recent anonymous upward feedback proved that the employees see their Managers as great role models, and their opinions are being heard and recognized. Also, it has been a year since we had no cats at the office. They were too stressed out with the number of people they had to interact with daily; that is why our employee volunteered to take them home. They are happy and safe and enjoy living in a big house :). And we remain pets friendly still. Even though we are still working on the corporate culture, we can state that it's shaping healthy, making our employees more engaged and happy at work. We genuinely care about everyone supporting our current and ex-employees on all possible matters. This approach has been approved and supported by the company CEO.
