    I have been working at Mintel full-time


    Mintel provides a lot of autonomy with really allowing someone to grow within their expertise. Entrepreneurial-minded people will definitely succeed here as the management is more hands-off and they take the approach of letting you be resourceful and providing your opinion.
    The work culture is fantastic, with a great mix of forward-thinking and innovative employees that work very collaboratively to bring the best ideas to light. There is a wonderful work-life balance so you are able to enjoy both your role within the company but still maintain a life outside of work.
    There are a lot of negative reviews on the salaries but people are well-rewarded here both in upward mobility and in compensation if you work hard.


    An employee who tends to not discuss job opportunities, growth and their career path might not be heard. One has to be ambitious, direct and take the time to sit down with their manager to assess their skill-sets and where they want their career at Mintel to go. If you are not as good at being direct, it may go unnoticed so make yourself heard.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you value an employee, take the time to meet with them regularly to talk about their goals and ambitions.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Mintel.

    Interview Details

    Second interview was canceled without any prior notification. I was later told I would not be interviewed because some seemingly bogus hiring policy. I asked for an explanation, which the interviewer never responded. Super unprofessional. Very glad this process did not move further.
