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?

    Collaborative and committed to improvement

    Jun 9, 2021 - Project Manager in Seattle, WA
    Recommend

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Supportive and collaborative working environment, clear focus on customers, leadership team committed to listening and improving based on feedback. I’ve found a real commitment here to supporting work/life balance as well, key for working parents — no late night or weekend demands or emails from managers which is the norm at other tech companies.

    Cons

    Can be a bit siloed — but that’s to be expected in a remote environment; over-rotation on homegrown platforms and systems that aren’t efficient.

    If there are any, I haven't witnessed them.

    Pros

    Used to be an amazing place to climb the ladder. Still can be if you’re on the right team.

    Cons

    Wow, it’s unfortunate how “leaders” have completely ruined this place. They don’t listen or take care of their employees and cheap as hell. I was laughed at when I questioned reviews and merit raises.

    The ship is sinking

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Remote work is nice and flexible Nice co-workers who are great to chat and work with

    Cons

    Companies direction is totally lost, they are targeting ESM customer, which rarely equates to dollars. Sales are dropping and nothing is really changing as far as strategy Managers are constantly leaving, so when a new one comes in, they shift the goals and direction again before anyone had any time to act on the previous changes Very stressful environment, all responsibility falls onto merch for successful events, even if studio, marketing, managers, etc. drop the ball Large workload, so many people have left and they just laid off lots more people, so I can't imagine that's getting any better for anyone who is left Non-competitive pay, jobs in the same role at different companies will pay much better than they do here, which is why turnover is so high Ability to get promoted is also very difficult, which is another reason why so many people leave

    very old school, they don't like change or new ideas presented. call everything the "zu" way as in its old and they are not willing to change it. from what I heard the old culture was great but newer culture after qurate groupe has acquired is very different- more cold and rigid.
