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

    There are some very talented people in the technical roles, local/regional management, facilities and datacenter operations.

    Cons

    Non-technical project managers and account reps who don't understand the nature of operations. Emphasis on faulty metrics that don't capture the nature of the work or the difference between sites. No emphasis on true efficiency or design. Organization is top heavy. Too many requestors and not enough performers.
