    The State of the Call Center 2015

    Thirty years ago, if you were asked to paint a picture of what the world would look like in 2015, your mind would probably have conjured up something out of a Jetsons episode. Flying cars. Commercial travel to the moon. The end of hunger, war and disease. Robots galore.

Why Mattersight?

Our Offices

We have offices conveniently located in Chicago, Austin, and the Minneapolis metropolitan area. Our offices are designed with a focus around communication and collaboration between team members. Video game consoles, TVs, and ping pong tables offer an alternative way to bond with coworkers or simply take a well-deserved break.

Career Development

Mattersight is committed to hiring bright, talented, and passionate people. Part of that commitment includes developing our team for career advancement through mentorship, training opportunities, and programs like U-Matter. U-Matter provides our team with a deeper understanding of our solution and how human behavioral modeling can be used to further develop personal and professional skills. Mattersight also provides opportunity for personal development through programs like Toastmasters International.



Our People

Mattersight believes in dedication, innovation, and collaboration to help our customers reach their goals. We build a culture that supports this by hiring and developing individuals who share these values, and providing them with the mentoring, training, and career development programs they need to succeed and excel.


Our Culture

Mattersight prides itself on cultivating a culture that team members enjoy being a part of. From new hire welcome parties to quarterly events to holiday celebrations, we know how to balance work with fun. Here are some of the ways our team celebrates our achievements and each other:

  • St. Patrick’s Day party with green libations
  • Ice cream socials to beat the heat
  • Halloween party and costume contests
  • Hot chocolate or baked potato buffets to warm us up in the winter
  • Annual golf outing

Mattersight also believes that a well-fed team is a happy team, so we keep our office kitchens stocked with drinks and snacks, and regularly enjoy catered lunches from some of the best restaurants in town.

Giving Back

Mattersight believes strongly in the importance of giving back to the communities we are a part of. We offer employees two paid volunteer days a year to to donate to their own charitable work or with a work team.  Volunteer opportunities range from preparing lunches for Feed Our Starving Children in Edina to volunteering at animal shelters in Chicago and more.

    I have been working at Mattersight full-time (Less than a year)


    - Extremely cool technology... determining personality, identifying empathy, examining distress and more, all based on text analytics. It's what IBM Watson strives to be but is actually in action at large companies - Newest solution, predictive behavioral routing, is offered as a complimentary pilot and produces positive results every time so sells itself - Company is making a big push into outbound marketing, sales and partnering so will only continue to grow - Even though it's been around for a while, the market has finally caught up so no longer a completely evangelical sales so I feel like I'm on the ground floor of something big - Extremely intelligent co-workers. An IQ test (via Wonderlic) is part of interview process so only top people work here - Great downtown location and new office is spectacular, it's as good as any tech company offers in Chicago


    - Not enough people are aware of this company but new CMO is doing great job of changing this

    Advice to Management

    Be bigger part of Chicago tech community... they will love this stuff

    Service Delivery Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Mattersight (Chicago, IL) in June 2015.


    The interview process began with a phone screen with the main recruiter and then a follow-up conversation over the phone with my future direct supervisor. Making it to the next round, I was asked to fill out a personality profile prior to my in-person interview, where I took the Wonderlic test and had a series of in-person interviews with the various department heads, including the Chief People Officer. I final phone conversation with an EVP and then received the good news about a week later. Everyone was extremely friendly throughout, honest and upfront about the process, and willing to answer any questions I had.
