    I have been working at Meltwater Group full-time

    Pros

    - Challenging role that will teach you a huge amount about business, sales and management. Perfect opportunity for graduates who want progression and have a lot of fight and competitive spirit. The culture is second to none, even when the sales side isn't for everyone no one can ever fault the culture and people you have the opportunity to work with. Good bonus structure and ability to work autonomously.

    Cons

    - You need a thick skin and to see the bigger picture (rather than just selling media monitoring) Still has a start up feel which means certain situations are handled badly and processes aren't always clear - essentially some management have little or no experience themselves. Very top heavy management so allure of progression into running your own office, opening up a new market or product line is very unlikely. Also work life balance doesn't really exist

    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at Meltwater Group.

    Interview Details

    After a phone interview I was invited to a group interview. Two managers talked about the company. They didn't seem as excited as I expected them to be. The candidates couldn't have been more diverse. Many of them didn't even go to university. I was expecting to see a bunch of fresh graduates, on the other hand most of the candidates were in their 30s. After we all introduces ourselves, we had to form groups. Each group got an object that we had to sell. It was a fun interview but overall I have to say that they were looking for people who are social and good speakers/actors.
