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?

    Definitely not my scene, perfect for people who just want to sell.

    Pros

    Easy to get into! If you seriously want to be hired, just channel your inner Ke$ha and you're good to go. Most of the people are pretty nice, nobody is really 'out to get you' as long as you don't end up with duplicate leads. They provide lunch, pay for happy hour (even though I would rather get more money than cheap booze and salty food, but hey, to each his own). The health benefit seemed good enough.

    Cons

    There seems to be no professional development, which leads to poor communication from lower management (mid level management was perfectly fine, possible too good for such a small operation and upper management was not really an issue for me) I am specifically talking about the team leads who clearly never opened a communications book and never learned about organizational behavior. To the person who thinks benefits are for 50 year olds: you're in the perfect place. Stay at Yext, you'd never make anywhere else. I think it is also important to point out that $50k is an unreasonably low salary when you're spending over 50 hours per week at work (which isn't even guaranteed, that's only if you consistently make sales and always hit above average numbers).

    A good first job experience, but little room for development or growth

    Pros

    - Generally, I loved my team. The people were overall a plus - The food stipend I got was a nice benefit for a time - The benefits were generally good and the autonomy to take breaks from the desk were appreciated

    Cons

    - The organization clearly prioritized developers over other engineers and technical resources, which was demoralizing - Their upper management seemed pretty incompetent while I was there, but I believe that it was on an upward trend by the time I left - It was a less professional, more casual tech startup environment- one which, at times , felt a bit fratty and informal. I believe this may have limited my development while I was there. - Workplace culture (later hours, mainly stock-based comp, many manual processes that were labor intensive, stocked booze cart and seamless benefits) created a place that people had issues checking out from, and the "unlimited flex" PTO for employees meant that employees with a book of business were pressured to not take time off. it was very unhealthy - you will discover little upwards mobility once you hit the 2-3 year mark - for certain positions, comp was well under market value. I wish I had shopped around earlier to see similar comps earlier in my tenure
