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?

    Great for both beginner and proffesional QA's

    Pros

    The pros of working with Testerwork is: - you get to work on a wide variety of projects, ranging from Fintech to Health-tech and different other industries (sometimes even Mobile Games) - you get to work on Apps from companies within FAANG (especially Facebook, as they're one of the bigget companies that are with Testerwork) - you get to experience how bug tracking works, as well as other opportunities as Bug Moderation, Test Case Creation - overall, this would prepare you and gain experience for a QA role, shall you search for a Full-Time Job - by dedicating more time, more devices, this can also become a full-time job - Great communication with Test Managers and the Support Team - they will help you with any question regarding tests, or issues you submit. - You also get paid weekly, every Tuesday if I'm not mistaken which is great as you don't have to wait until the end of the month for a salary.

    Cons

    - Unfortunately, you can't predict when you are going to be invited on a project/Test Cycle - that means that you might get invited at midnight, or have your weekends full with testing - You don't have an option to "pause" testing in case you're in vacation. - In order to be a reoccurring tester you will have to be consistent with testing. I'm guessing rejecting the project 3+ times will make you replaceable with a more consistent tester. - Some of the tests are depending on your location. Therefore, you might not get invited on all the tests, are some are country-specific. - You might need multiple devices in order to get picked. I totally had over 10 devices throughout my testing with Tester Work. - It will take time for you to get invited to multiple projects and build trust. You need to be consistent and test for 1+ year, and after that you will be invited to bigger projects as you build trust and prove your professionalism and QA skills. Nonetheless, this is still a good side-job at the start, which can change into full-time in the future. - You get paid by the severity of the bug you submit, however, lately they are using an AI that determines the severity. This means that sometimes the AI might be wrong and you will have to contact Tester Work regarding the issue in question in order to change the severity. Nonetheless, the support is great and it will get a solution in 1 to max 2 business days depending on when the request was sent.

    Didn't feel customer focused

    Pros

    Good bonus program with potential to make 2k on your basic without much effort

    Cons

    Inconsistent management. You would get conflicting advice from different team managers. In training the advice was to try to sell add-ons, my first team leader also pushed this, my second team leader chastised you for not selling in line with a customer's needs, third manager would try to second guess the customers needs (you would explain a product and ask if they would like it, if they agreed and the manager was listening in and didn't think, say, an admin assistant didn't need a courtesy car, they would come down on you, fourth didn't care at all. This was a few years ago so the culture could have changed but based on recent Facebook posts... I'm not sure that it has.
