    I have been working at Mintel


    Engaging environment, modern setting, intelligent people.


    You have to get an outside job offer (and sometimes actually leave) in order to get a raise.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The only thing that could make working at Mintel better would be a competitive compensation strategy that includes (at minimum) cost-of-living increases. Outside of that, no complaints.

    Research Analyst Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Mintel in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I had an initial phone screener with an internal recruiter, and then a phone interview with my manager-to-be. Then, I had to write a report based on 20+ pages of data from Mintel, I also included data and insights from other sources. I received good feedback and was invited to an in-person interview with a Research Manager and a fellow (Senior) Research Analyst. I felt I did very well, and was communicated that the final step was to make a presentation.

    After a few days I haven't received the data for the presentation, so I reached out to the HR contact asking for a follow-up on my interview, and she NEVER replied. I deserved at least a simple email stating they were moving with other applicants. This is very rude!

    Interview Questions
    • No difficult or unexpected questions. In-person interview focused on explaining the work process, which sounded rigid.   Answer Question
