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?

    A people first company that walks the walk

    Pros

    The company products help experimental drugs get to the people that need them faster. This alone is a very good reason to put in the effort and be proud of being part of such a company. Now if you couple this with a culture that treats people as complete human beings in a truly remote working environment then you have a winning combination.

    Cons

    Castor has transitioned from startup to scale up and like any company at this stage it is constantly looking to find its new bearings in a very competitive market. So change is frequent in an effort to always be better at what they do.

    Amazing Culture

    Pros

    By far, the best work culture I've experienced in my career. Tons of support and collaboration, yet, you have the autonomy to preform the job you were hired to do.

    Cons

    We could use some more options for health benefits in the US.
