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?

    Sub-par management

    Pros

    High salary. It says I must enter at least five words here.

    Cons

    The bosses don't actually help you in any way, they just push their own work down the ladder until it's all in your lap. Then they hound you, and that's on top of the automated hounding (reminders, surveys, survey reminders, checkins, and don't forget to look after your mental health!). Also they encourage (force) everyone to be socially invested in the company, then, in the company slack, they publish a leaderboard of people who have not achieved full-utilization on their timesheets. Fake chumminess and public shaming. These guys are dogs.

    Decent company but terrible place to start career

    Pros

    - Good pay at higher levels - Happy hours/lots of events and such

    Cons

    - Managers are pretty incompetent, have to be told 3 or 4 times for every situation - Difficult to promote if you're not a favourite - Lots of politics within company - No support for lower level engineers - If you're early in your career, good luck, you're honestly screwed if you aren't an expert at what your clients require.

    Good work; great people; fantastic culture

    Jan 13, 2022 - Software Engineer in Toronto, ON

    Pros

    - It's a consulting company, so you are constantly: learning new technologies, architectures, and meeting new people. - There's a lot of encouragement for personal growth. There are monthly bonuses awarded to those who pursue professional certifications, which are also reimbursed (partially/fully upto a limit) by the company. We also have subscriptions to multiple learning portals so you don't spend anything on the prep materials. - You get a chance to explore different opportunities within the company by simply bringing up your interests to your manager and moving to a different project that is more inline with your interests. - Both my manager and the leadership team are very transparent and approachable about everything. As it is a growing company, you are encouraged to bring forth ideas to shape company culture. - There is continuous knowledge sharing within the company via tech talks and workshops. You are encouraged to host your own too. - As someone who hates commute, I like the flexibility of working remotely permanently. But you can still come into the office if you please. We have monthly in-person events so you still get a chance to meet everyone. - They offer great benefits and unlimited vacation time (client work permitting of course). Even though unlimited vacation is slowly starting to take hold in the tech industry, it's still not the norm, so I like it.

    Cons

    - No company RRSP plan.

    Super grateful to be a part of this!

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    - Interesting projects to work on. They are complex, make you think. Think about what how platform (distributed systems) are built for the next 10-20 years - Impactful work. Not just any type of project (i.e. it's not your typical "just build an app that looks cool" ) - Smart people to work with. People with 10-20 years of experience from companies like Google, Microsoft, Amazon, VMWare, etc... Or even people writing books. Super knowledgeable - Culture of growth. A lot of learning opportunities. A lot of mentorship across the company. Mentors assigned if needed. People are never dropped into a project without having the foundation. Company make sure that person has the foundational skill sets (by going through a program) before being assigned a project - Company isn't shy to spend money on the employees to fly everyone to the company events. Event to cover all teh travelling cost for their significant other - Super competitive compensation compared to most companies

    Cons

    - Probably not the company's fault and most companies are facing this but I wish there was more remote events (or some sort of cadence) that allow people to connect ore virtually

    Welcoming Team & Great Culture

    Pros

    The upper management clearly cares about having a welcoming culture, frequent social events and many warm and approachable people on the team (including the upper management)! Aggressive pay and interesting and a wide variety of problems that you get to work on, with a lot of say on what type of development you get to work with.

    Cons

    Clients can require specialized hardware causing you to actively have to pay attention to multiple devices and there is some getting used to everything with consulting work.

    Pros

    - Company growing very fast, many high profile clients - The team consists of truly wonderful people who are highly competent, helpful, and caring - Invested in the growth and career development of employees

    Cons

    - Losing the feel of a startup as headcount keeps growing. This is only a concern if you're specifically looking for an early startup environment.
