    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 learning experience, but dont stay too long

      Mar 14, 2022 - Data Scientist in London, England
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      + Good exposure to different technology + You learn a lot from many smart colleagues + Great place for new graduates to learn + Clear career ladder + No glass ceiling until you hit very senior level + Lots of different areas to work in + Variety of clients

      Cons

      - Treated as a "resource" by account managers - Little to no say in terms of location - you could be based in London but expected to be in the middle of nowhere 5 days a week (and expected to live in a hotel nearby) - Very old cheap hardware - Very corporate with multiple review points in the year - Salary and bonus below market rates - Management (project, account, career) is poor. Often had little idea what has happening or ignored issues to avoid dealing with them. - Work life balance is BAD. I was once expected to work 6am-midnight + 4hrs travel a day for 9 months. No overtime paid. Project manager told us to take the time back once project was complete, but this was never agreed with HR. Career/line manager was aware but did nothing despite clear signs of stress/breakdown. - Can often be left silo'd on a client site with zero support. I started developing RSI and back issues due to lack of screens or proper seating. Raised it with HR but as I was on a client site they refused to do anything as didn't want to address poor work environment with client, and client HR refused to make allowances for external consultants.

      Poor leadership/management

      Mar 3, 2022 - Software Engineer in Leeds, England

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Lots of weight in the industry for working for a well-recognised name

      Cons

      Little support or interest shown from SLT to address employee discord. Performance reviews are for business metrics rather than enhancing team culture. Too much focus on pleasing clients at the expense of employees' time - lack of respect towards personal time and obligations.
