    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?

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Flexible working Remote working Friendly staff

      Cons

      No real product capability Roles like “product consultant” are intentionally vague and when you join client you will do whatever role they need you to do even if it doesn’t fit your skill set. You will do two peoples roles (at least) on client as well as participate in company initiatives and business unit initiatives All holidays include bank holidays and compassionate leave etc is down to managers discretion Career Progression is incredibly difficult if you’re a band 3 going to band 2 Incredibly toxic feedback culture Client always come first, it’s doesn’t work in a consultancy way where consultants consult on best approach / strategy. Kainos staff more or less do what clients want to keep the government cheque flowing.

      Pros

      - Great People, they are what make Kainos - Fairly flexible Approach to work life balance

      Cons

      - Constant emails from OPs about utilisation & forecasting - Inability to manage your own forecast - not enough work, only small projects in my area (struggling to grow as a result) - bloated middle management level inhibiting promotion and lack of work distributed amongst team, need more junior resources
