Current Employee - Sales Manager

I have been working at Meltwater Group full-time for 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

    I have been working at Meltwater Group full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The role provides great exposure into various businesses, colleagues are cool to work with. This company focuses on personal development, encourages open communication between you and your supervisors and provides a good company culture.

    Cons

    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 for less than a year

    Pros

    If you are driven and sell/renew your clients, you can make a lot of money. Young driven employees. You get to learn a lot about different industries and meet a lot of interesting people.

    Cons

    Sometimes it felt like there was no regard for the customer's actual needs. The company is going through a lot of changes, but they are not very good at communicating that to all levels of employees. Your experience at Meltwater really depends on what office and what team you are on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work on communicating information.
