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?

    Serious Lack of Diversity and it's clear they don't care about it

    Jun 29, 2022 - Account Executive 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Good and innovative product for large fleets

    Cons

    I'm not happy about the lack of diversity that this company has. Not only does this company have no diversity initiatives, they also have zero diversity. All one has to do is look at the LinkedIn profiles of the sales team and it's easy to see there is none. Stay away if you don't fall into the norm. I left because of it.

    Revolving door

    Apr 5, 2022 - Marketing Associate 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    - Prior to 2020, I worked with really great, smart people. - New President (now CEO) has good intention and smart

    Cons

    - Churn and burn culture. - Very little strategy or commitment to a plan. - New COO (now President) has snakelike tendencies. - Acquired a company in 2021 and now trying to productize something that’s not a SaaS product. - Somehow the company has continued to miss sales goals… with no change in leadership or strategy.
