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?

    Good until it wasn't

    Jan 11, 2022 - Anonymous Employee in Berlin

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    * The company is still in the position of making some changes that could lead them to the next level. * The CEO is someone who can be approached.

    Cons

    * There's plenty of arrogance and gatekeeping. * Anything but a flat hierarchy, there are no leaders, just managers, and bosses. * There isn't a clear growth plan (neither career nor salary-wise) in place. * Lack of transparency.

    Pros

    Great people further downstream, and a real sense of camaraderie.

    Do not recommend, especially if you'll be based out of Berlin!

    Jun 29, 2021 - Sales Development Representative (SDR) 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    -Young and creative teams. -Friendly colleagues. -Professional tools

    Cons

    -No proper training tailored for your role; the only training is about the company and service. -Stressful work environment and unreasonable targets that almost no one can achieve - Many Salespeople left the company. -Having a "Good luck" strategy for achieving your individual targets. -In most cases, you'll find yourself left alone to deal with any external problems that HR or Finance people are supposed to take care of it. -Almost no benefits (for people working outside of Germany) - I mean no private insurance, sports card... . However, they were promised and discussed in the pre-contract to have them, but it never happened! -Very poor C-level decision-making - Just awaiting people for months to confirm something - For instance, waiting for 6 months and several follow-ups if the employment contract will be extended or not and suddenly they telling you that you'll work till tomorrow and forcing you to take all your holidays till the end of contract! My overall advice is that if you are considering joining the company as your First Job, it is a good place to learn things, otherwise do not recommend it if you're seeking career growth.
