    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?

      Good entry level and flexible company

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      -Lot of exposure to different partners/brands so its good for networking -Exposure to both Canadian and US markets, and they are strong in both -Softchoice "university" and learning material is good, although could be better in terms of updating information -Flexible WFH policy. Good medical benefits, allowances for cellphone. -I joined in 2019, the culture is great, but the pandemic has kind of taken that away -All in all great for entry levels and even intermediates, room to grow and other roles to explore -Supportive management (In some cases) -Great work/life balance

      Cons

      -Can get unlucky with territory/accounts -Tier-based salary compensation which is seems fair, but very little room to negotiate compensation or increase. Also, it depends on performance, so many times people get "lucky" with developed territories where there is more exposure and business ready to go -Not in market standards based on the pay -You get paid a % of sales in CAD (if you are in Canada) even if you sell in USD -The quota grows quickly and the system they use for calculating this is unfair, your quota has to grow around 15% YoY but the businesses that happen in your first year, may not happen the next year, but they still consider that as your base quota to apply a % increase for next years quota.
