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?

    Pros

    Good Pay, Good PTO, great benefits (retirement, healthcare)

    Cons

    Visa makes it very hard to do anything innovative, teams are all understaffed. Most time is spent putting out fires. The organization has been bleeding talent who are leaving for greener pastures. Work-life balance is basically nonexistant for IT folks. The organization refuses to spend money on new software or hardware, or even new hires. The equipment and software you are forced to use are of very low quality. I could go on and on, but the company has really deteriorated in terms of corporate culture over the last 3-4 years. They like to prattle on about work life balance, inclusion, etc..., but its nothing more than lip service.

    Pros

    Great work life balance for working parents Benefits are good

    Cons

    Non-competitive compensation package. Lower base salary for similar position similar companies. No RSU culture - some RSUs may be given (token only) As a result, compensation package doesn't promote a high performance culture. Attracts average talent for long term stay. High performers leave early with turnover usually under 2-3 years.
