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?

    None. I couldn't ask for a better place to work.

    Sep 27, 2022 - Software Engineer 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    - Amazing work life balance almost unheard of in the game industry. No crunch and everyone respects each other's time. - Hybrid/fully remote work possible for some roles.

    Cons

    - Pay is good for Maryland, but not competitive enough compared to the rest of the gaming industry that's increasingly allowing fully remote work. - The yearly expansion cadence of ESO can get stale after a while.

    Good to work for, but hard to get out of QA

    Jan 28, 2022 - QA Tester in Hunt Valley, MD
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Everyone is friendly and open to questions. This is a very teamwork based office. There's a lot of work, but it's nothing challenging and once you learn what to do it's pretty easy.

    Cons

    It feels pretty stagnant here. If you want to move out of QA, even if you have a degree in the field sometimes, it can take a few years for you to move up and out. While we do get paid more than other gaming company's QA, it's not enough to keep up with cost of living.

    The people here are great, fun, and lovely to work with. The building is also great.
