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?

    Would not recommend

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Benefits are pretty good as far as health insurance, 401k matching, time off etc. Salary is competitive.

    Cons

    Overwhelming workload. Executive/Mgt team doesn't seem to support additional resources in over-head departments even though it is desperately needed. You are just expected to do everything. If you don't, then you are not doing your job and it will either affect your bonus or you are under-performing. It's a recipe for burnout and finding a work/life balance here is difficult. I do not recommend working here.
