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?

    Tunnel vision sales focus means customer service and product quality is an afterthought

    May 10, 2021 - Technical Product Support Specialist in Chicago, IL
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Weekly paycheck deposits at 1 am without failure, had some decent parties prior to Covid, never saw anyone fired for incompetence in 13 years, Product Support is likely desperate and will hire you regardless of whether you have qualifications or not.

    Cons

    The only way to get ahead is by getting hired with a nepotistic advantage of some kind as the company is rife with execs and managers being married or otherwise related to each other in ways I often found shockingly unprofessional. This makes it easy to burn your career there by stepping on the wrong toes but no one will tell you this until it’s too late. Product Support itself is a directionless, shambolic disaster with management being far more concerned with serving the sales org and not the users of the products you are expected to placate when the product has failed. Aggressively invasive, condescending micromanagement takes the place of actual leadership because none is provided. Environment is physically and emotionally toxic and low morale. Compensation is pathetic for the level of sophistication. You will endlessly be told that you are the one who sucks for advocating for change.
