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

    The people are fun and collaborative, and make sure that you're comfortable where you are. The work is engaging, and there seems to be ample opportunity to learn about areas outside of your specific job description.

    Cons

    There seems to be a distinct favoritism given to the software engineers over most other divisions, which makes sense in some cases, but also serves to alienate the other employees a little bit.

    Pros

    Cool work environment and benefits. Food stipend, fully stocked kitchens, unlimited vacation and pizza & beer Friday’s

    No growth or employee development. Discrimination & tons of favoritism. Had a manager tell me straight out it’s not his job to teach me when I sought out more challenge

    Pros

    Answers Product is incredibly powerful and compelling There are large deals that come in and that is the only way to hit your number - people who have been there for a while know how to game the system and favoritism plays a massive role.

    Cons

    CBU: A very small portion of AE's actually hit their number. - Expect to be in a position where you are consistently missing and there is limited to no help from management. - Fear based and metric driven - Outdated sales process that is carried over by old-school exec team - Little to No Inbound Prospects - no alignment with marketing (weird considering they are a "marketing" company) - High Level of Turn Over and a complete lack of transparency
