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?

    Excellent culture, smart engaging coworkers. Really enjoyed working in the space of social media monitoring.

    Cons

    Unusual moves among upper management led to mass layoffs...my compulsive need to be kind prevents me from sharing more. It just was not a good situation for me.

    Pros

    One of the best things about Sysomos is that everyone is pulling together toward a common goal and vision. In addition, the culture encourages everyone to speak up and for people to listen and take action. Its a very exciting environment comprised of very talented people that work as a team.

    Cons

    It's a very competitive industry. Takes hard work and commitment to succeed. Not a place for faint of heart.

    Pros

    some very smart and dedicated employees - who are there to do the right thing (but unable to due to management incompetence)

    Cons

    zero vision or strategic thinking driving company. management mistakes "activity" for progress CEO is an ego maniac - and micromanages extremely tactical details that add zero value to the company vs. focusing on strategic leadership of the company. penny wise and pound foolish. Inexperienced senior management team Raleigh office feels very Trump-y.
