I have been working at Meltwater Group full-time (Less than a year)RecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEORecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEO
Meltwater has an amazing company culture and is willing to invest in people. I came into the role with no sales experience but with a keen interest to join a growing, innovative company that is willing to foster potential talent.
This has certainly been the case.
Access to all levels of management is well upheld so the individual is able to develop quickly. The company is still expanding and innovating so there are a lot of opportunities.
This is a young company that hires people from all different backgrounds - which leads to a great working environment. The bonus structure is very generous too, and earning potential is uncapped.
You have to be thick skinned and self motivated.
Starting out in a sales role is hard, and clients aren't forgiving of poor sales skills.
If you aren't getting results it can be very disheartening

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at Meltwater Group (Sydney) in March 2015.
Once you put in your CV and application, usually the Managing Director gives you a call. They explain a bit more about the company and even though this program is called the International Management Trainee program, the international aspect is that they have offices internationally, and that you work towards getting into management, starting from a sales role where you sell the software to clients. In the phone interview, the MD gives you a run-down of the company. The phone interview is simple and seems like a formality and they then invite you to a mingle drinks session of about 20 people. It was not made clear at this point that this "mingle session" is actually a part of the assessment process. They do a few presentations and demo the software and then you can ask questions. It is in that time that they basically decide whether they like you or not, though it is under the guise of "feel free to ask us any questions". The bottom line is, if you don't actively make yourself stand out at this point and try to get to know everyone, they will not invite you for the group interview.
