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?

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    - I work with people who, like me, like their jobs and actually want to be here most days. - Leadership (Product & Engineering and C-suite) for the most part are transparent and care deeply about the work we're doing. - My voice is heard and my work makes an impact. - As a mid-level role I still get to participate in things like product strategy, which seems very early in the career ladder. - My manager is fantastic. I get a good balance of support and independence. -Intern program that any employee (at least in P&E) can get involved in. - Programming - presentations, events, panels, and really fun videos .

    Cons

    - Growing pains due to acquisitions, strategy shifts, and fast hiring pace. So far, these are not things I would leave my job over.

    Pros

    I love working here, and you absolutely get what you put into it. Yet there are some growing pains here and there, leadership are fully transparent. If you're lucky enough to work here, you're already home.

    Cons

    I have none. Like I said, you get what you put into it. Leadership will work as hard as you do to help you advance in the company.
