Current Employee - Sales Manager
Current Employee - Sales Manager

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

Pros

- Learn lots of skills (negotiation, sales, people, presentation, management)
- Client facing (one minute speaking with the CEO of a charity, the next a PR Manager for a global bank, the next the Head of Comms for a retail chain)
- Good money overall (average if you don't hit targets, really good if you hit)
- People are really likeable on the whole. Very social, warm and friendly. Lots of banter in the office
- Social events are outstanding (take you to Vegas, Jamaica, Mexico!)

Cons

- High pressure. Not for people who can't handle targets etc.
- Industry is more competitive now with lots of other providers
- Fast track management is now likely to happen in 1-2 years instead of 6 months (but this actually means the managers are good).

Advice to ManagementAdvice

- Hire people who want to work in sales and management
- Don't be scared to hire graduates

    Most people will start their career in sales, this may not be for everyone. Company is developing and there will be changes on various levels from time to time.

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

    Pros

    Good colleagues and a steep learning curve, in an interesting and fast-moving industry

    Cons

    When it comes to choosing between employee satisfaction, culture and hardcore sales KPIs, the last one wins - This is good to a certain extend, but can be too much

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on the good stories, and celebrate the small wins. You never win by micromanagement, but focus on empowering people and help them to make smart decisions.
