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?

    Deceptive Benefits for women

    Pros

    Some team members were really great to work with.

    Cons

    During the current layoff (September 22') it's evident that whomever is responsible for choosing departments and employees to lay off are highly incompetent. Senior managers, directors for example who I've seen make huge mistakes, have minimal knowledge about their role and make minimal effort to support their team are still employed. Meanwhile valuable, hardworking employees including women who were pregnant, just returned from maternity leave or currently on maternity leave were laid off. What standards were used to make these decisions? Tradeshift has essentially lost more than just salaries on their payroll. Had I not been laid off I'd still be looking for another job. I feel relieved not to be employed at Tradeshift but feel terrible for those who are hardworking and knowledgeable folks who are left to pick up the pieces.

    Pros

    The people at Tradeshift are the best you'll ever meet. Everyone is ready to help everyone. Not C-level... but everyone else? yes.

    Cons

    Leadership makes such poor management decisions. Spend money in things that are not necessary, but they'd rather keep the unnecessary, than the customer facing teams.

    I’d be surprised if this company makes it through this recession!

    Pros

    100% remote, those whom I interacted with are great people.

    Cons

    CEO! Seems like a narcissist, in the short time there strategies changed multiple times company wide. A 13 year old company should no longer consider itself a start up, you’re doing something wrong if still a start up, given the CEO and what seems to be a narcissist need to be a “start up bro”, it makes sense why the message I received from top was that the company is a start up. Research how much money Tradeshift has received in funding and they are still a start up!?!?!? With rising interest rates, cut jobs, cut expenses, panic mode… Can’t go to the well and beg for a couple more million from VC’s? I wonder how much the Grey Venture has put in their pocket? The 10% reduction in workforce email sent by CEO was a nice touch, at a minimum be a man and hold a company wide meeting. A keyboard warrior hiding behind email without facing those who were sold an idea.

    Stay Away!

    Pros

    great people. Some of the greatest people I have ever worked with in my career.

    Cons

    Sr. Leadership is not equipped to run a company. They are horrible communicators and bad decision makers. Tradeshift has been a startup for 13 years, raised money from many many different places and has yet to turn a profit in those 13 years. There is a reason, founders will not step aside and allow bright people to run a company. Too bad, company has potential. If you are looking for diversity, keep looking, you are not going to find it here.

    Strongly discourage Tradeshift for anyone of good character.

    Pros

    Alcohol- Endless opportunities to get drunk with your colleagues and see venture dollars fuel a great party.

    Cons

    I'm stunned to see Tradeshift is still around. The cofounders are both afraid of Christian (CEO) and anyone who tries to level with him about the reality of the company is fired. Christian founded a startup that failed before and is now so determined to make Tradeshift a success that he will outright life to employees, investors, and the public. He is all about optics. All of the tier 1,2 and 3 institutional investors have passed on investing- which is a major red flag. There were several inappropriate relationships happening in the company and Christian just thinks it is all good as long as people are happy. He is a sucker for sycophants, so if you do find yourself employed here, take a look at the "Whatever Christian Says" culture and get on board or get out fast.

    Smoke and Mirrors and wasted money

    Pros

    Some nice people. A good idea with bad management.

    Cons

    CEO is a hype- man and also a vindictive person who cannot take feedback (wait for the response to this review). Is this a WeWork situation where only the CEO wins?Perhaps. Living large while company underperforms is shameful.
