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

    - Great team environment; lots of noise -- people actually talk to each other and are excited about they are working on - No BS management; everyone may not like it but they tell it like it is - Strong product that is easily market leader but needs marketed better - Good growth profile for the company; good opportunity to grow as the company does - As others have noted -- very much a self-starter environment. Not alot of handholding here. If you are the kind of person that likes to take an idea and run, this place is great. If not, you may struggle. - Friendly team that genuinely seem to like to spend time together - Management is pretty open and although there are definite tiers in the company, everyone is pretty accessible - Work ethic is strong across the board - Honest to a fault -- committed to client service in an industry that is pretty indifferent to it - Constantly adapting to market changes which means projects change as do priorities - making for dynamic environment, albeit a little exhausting - Company of builders

    Cons

    - Coordination of global teams needs improvement; inconsistent communication between offices - Junior employees could use more direct management to grow - More marketing outreach needed so that people understand the product and company better - Offices are cool but getting cramped

    Pros

    As a sales person coming from a very different environment, it's amazing to work with so many smart people collaborating to offer the best products to our customers as possible. Suggestions to management are taken seriously and changes are made based on real customer feedback. Management is always willing to take time out for questions or concerns . Work/life balance is fair with a number of fun work outings built in to brighten company culture.

    Cons

    Due to the technical nature of the business, product roll outs tend to take longer than you'd like. Sometimes as a sales person you find yourself biting your lip wanting to pitch specific products in the pipeline that haven't been announced yet.

    Pros

    We have the opportunity to really make an impact on the company's growth and success, there's no politics, and the company has had a vision of smart data, smart products that has stayed true since the start. A lot of integrity and hard work from the people I work with.

    Cons

    Life at a small private company is not for everyone, you need the entrepreneurial spirit and willingness to figure things out.

    Pros

    decent company to start your career if you just graduated. nice location most people are nice enough

    Cons

    - lack of management control over things that are not supposed to exist in a professional area, such as coworker yelling at people, ignoring coworkers, abusive languages in group messages and other unprofessional behaviors. Managers, for some reasons, seem to lack of control and effectively action to prevent this from happening. - lack of clear job responsibilities, terrible job classification in some department. - uneven team workload. some department may do 'team building' EVERYDAY, while some NEVER do. - C-level sometimes could be very aloof and have different treatments to people. - You will be in the black list if you quit the company.

    Pros

    The company is in it's exciting transition stage in terms of expanding it's DMP business and going from a smaller to bigger company. The culture and work space are very friendly and open.

    As we grow, we need more people to balance out the workload.

    Pros

    What can you say about a company where on Friday afternoon, our CEO, Mark, pushes a beer cart around offering beer and snacks to everyone. The people are wonderful to work with especially in the Technical Operations area.

    Cons

    The heavy workload can get daunting to manage but with the support of your team members any challenges are surmountable.
