I have been working at Meltwater Group full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Excellent Earnings especially for an entry level position. Start-up company type atmosphere as opposed to a corporate Job. European company so great vacation and benefits. Opportunities to work abroad and all over the USA.

Cons

A lot of upper management is at their position since they where with the company at the early stages, therefore a lot of them are not knowledgeable and acquired position based on friendships. Most upper management is very young has no work experience other than Meltwater. A lot of management is from Europe so has no real understanding of the US business climate.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

To many impulse decisions on the direction of the company that are poorly thought out. Many promotions seem more because of friendships within management rather than performance based.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on enterprise and tier your best sales people with industry comparable bases to avoid loosing skills and experience.

    Continue to invest in the product. there are plenty of competitors that would like to be where you are. They could catch up if you don't innovate an retain.

    I worked at Meltwater Group full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Spending time with a *few* nice people who have also been sucked in.

    Cons

    I survived for 2 years; and can't believe I didn't leave earlier.
    HR is non-existent - I witnessed many internal issues (sexism, racism, abuse, unprofessional behaviour) that were completely ignored.
    You are expected to be "Best friends" with everyone and spend your waking minutes with colleagues - otherwise you don't fit in.
    Many senior staff have left and senior management has crumbled.
    Encouraged to sell a product for whatever the price to people and organisations who don't actually need it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote people who clearly set leadership examples - not just those who can sell.
