    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

      Good team spirit. Flexibility on time as long as you deliver.

      Cons

      The career path is not great. Average pay is below market average compared to the same size of the company in the same industry. That led to consistent high attrition.

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Great people to work with, very helpful and always open. Company culture is pretty good. Very diverse teams spread across the world. Lack of office politics. Senior management does engage on regular basis and keeps the company up to date with what is happening in other divisions. Decent training program , but most learning happens on the job. Very lucky to have had good seniors on the team to teach and guide.

      Cons

      Work is not as interesting. Working on the product can be quite frustrating and repetitive. Pressure to deliver quickly affects the quality of the work being done. It feels as though the company has bitten off more than it can chew. Salary is not the best.

      It was a great place to work until it was bought by Scientific Games...

      Pros

      The best thing about the organisation was the people. It may have grown to 2000 people in 23 countries, but it still, on occasion, felt like a startup. Summer in Chiswick Park was always great and there was usually a few people to get beer with.

      Cons

      After finding out that the new-to-us SG CFO was of the opinion that "We don't invest in IT because it doesn't generate a profit" it all started going downhill and everyone who could leave, did so. Because what is a technology company without IT to drive it. Now it has been dragged back to the 90's complete with an overflow of middle-management.
