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?

    Nice people but ridiculous expectations

    The management was great and although the work was virtual, everyone made an effort to lift spirits and promote a team environment. There are some fun perks as well. The company just became publicly traded, so it is exciting to be a part of their growth right now. There are multiple opportunities for growth and promotion at the company as they get bigger and bigger.


    The workload was ridiculous. You are expected to meet your quota every month and in order to meet that quota, that involves dialing out multiple calls a day to sell tutoring services. The services themselves are very expensive and that aspect made it difficult to sell to consumers. The goal for us as consultants was to find the need of the consumer and to promote and sell the services that works best for their needs. It sounds great, but in reality, it felt like waving services that many consumers need for a multitude of reasons in their face. The other aspect that is hard to swallow is just how difficult it is to keep up with their standards. You have to spend a solid 8 hours making calls the entire time. You will be talking to people most of the day. It is the type of job that some can handle, but if you can't handle being at a computer for 8 hours at a time with very little break opportunities, you may want to look elsewhere.

    1. Pay each week. 2. Set your own schedule 3. Plenty of clients.


    Most job opportunities are in person and a little too far to travel for pay.

    It is a great opportunity to help students everywhere and communicate with them on line. It is fulfilling my teaching passion and providing assistance to students, specially in a challenging test like the SAT. I tutor SAT and Arabic which is one of the most difficult languages. But I enjoy it and Varsity gives me the opportunity to spread my wings in both.


    I have to wake up many times during the night to accept assignments because the difference in time. There is nothing mentioned about increasing the rate even after a period of time or good performance.
