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

    Yandex Labs used to have talented people

    Cons

    Yandex is a Moscow company. Everything that is not invented in Moscow or directed by Moscow is rejected. As result all talented people have left. The office in Palo Alto would be closed years ago, if Borkovski wasn't Volozh personal friend. At the same time Borkovski is disliked by many key people in Moscow.
