A great platform to build a B2B sales career

Senior Sales (Former Employee)
London, England (UK)

ProsYou're thrown in the deep end with a sink or swim mentality - if you're a natural salesperson with strong commercial instincts & thick skin you could do very well

It can be lucrative & the people below senior management level are often great

ConsPoor senior management with a very telling lack of experience, unstable product, the culture can be very cult-like with a lack of self-reflection & no tolerance for straying from the part line.

Advice to Senior ManagementEmploy experienced senior sales people externally, re-think the satellite office structure & try and re-jig the culture to be less weird.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    My short time at meltwater

    International Management Trainee (Former Employee)

    I worked at Meltwater Group full-time for less than a year


    Pros: Cool office. Small teams. Good co-workers. Good first month commission. Cons: Cult like culture. 100% sales focused. Definitely not management training. Target focused. If you weren't a team player… Advice to Senior Management: Change your structure. Remove focus on targets. Encourage creativity. Stop thinking that your way is… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
