    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

      1) great people 2) private insurance 3) good parties 4) good app

      Cons

      In the engineering team there is alot of micromanagement leading to stress for the people. Many people have left the company because of the micromanagement. The manager made people in my team very stressed regarding passing the probation. He mentioned that if you do a mistake twice you can be fired. Every move is being watched, HR is watching the times of people coming and going. People feel unsafe and stressed. Other teams seemed to be fine.
