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?

    Chaotic Leadership, Toxic Environment, Unrealized Potential

    Jul 11, 2020 - Director in Seattle, WA
    Recommend
    CEO Approval

    Pros

    The pay and benefits. Some very great people. Some nice perks

    Cons

    Leadership was disjointed and in constant chaos. No mission, focus and ability to achieve any of the goals, Toxic work environment. People get thrown under the bus, set up to fail, and don't get support to succeed. ZERO loyalty.

    Great people, decisions are made quickly and you have the opportunity to make an impact. The benefits are pretty incredible!

    Vulcan Technology: Innovate, don't replicate

    Mar 5, 2009 - Software Engineer in Seattle, WA
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Pay is great, people are great, middle management is great. Get to go on Paul's private plane to basketball games and over to his estate for movie night.

    Cons

    Products developed are pretty silly, and you get to feeling like you're spinning your wheels working on pipe dreams of Paul's. Innovation in project direction is not encouraged. They seem afraid to let loser employees go, especially bullying incompetent ones. Project managers play the role of product owners, and they seem more concerned with not rocking the boat and protecting their cush jobs than with building something someone might care about. While they pay well, opportunity for growth is limited.
