    Pros

    Culture / Highly motivated colleagues / Infectious professionalism and drive to succeed / Earning Potential

    Meltwater provides a Market leading solution, which makes believing in what you sell extremely achievable. Arguably one of the best platforms to springboard into the world of B2B sales with quick progression through the ranks being very attainable. Most step up into a management role within their first year of working at Meltwater.

    Meltwater awards its employees hard work and determination to succeed both in fast career development and in wage compensation. Very easy to earn a substantial chunk of change in your first year out of College.

    Cons

    No huge issue here for me personally. As long as you don't mind working hard for your career and putting in the work required to succeed you will be fine.

    Advice to Management

    At the moment I am in the NAM East area. My suggestions are we keep doing what were doing. I work with inspirational people who work hard and get rewarded for their efforts.

    Pros

    - Amazing company culture. You become great friends with the people that you are working with.
    - Ability to make quite a bit of commission and bonuses...you get out what you put in
    - Great sales training and leaders in the company. You have the ability to be promoted within a short period of time

    Cons

    - Sometimes, the company culture can be overwhelming. You get used to this though!
    - Work/life balance is hard to maintain, but gets easier as you get accustomed to the work load

    Pros

    Culture is very fun and supportive. Compensation and time-off policies are very good. Lots of opportunities, if you put the work in your can pretty much do whatever you want. Work internationally? Management? Marketing? Sales? It's all within reach as Meltwater will focus on your potential, rather than your past experiences.

    Cons

    It's a very fast moving company, if you don't like change, it might not be for you.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work, continue to focus on people development!

    Pros

    Constant investment in culture and high standards for recruitment mean you're always surrounded by high-performing individuals. Quotas are easily attained and top performers are met with very strong, uncapped compensation.

    Cons

    From day one you'll have the opportunity to manage the entire sales process while learning about all different industries, but this is a fast-paced and growing company so come prepared to work hard.

    Advice to Management

    Don't make any sacrifices in the name of growth. Keep with the high standards for people and promotions and continue to invest in the product.

    Continue providing training and development to future leaders to ensure they're equipped and prepared.

    Pros

    CULTURE. The culture throughout the entire company is inspiring. Everyone has the same values and goals to help this company move forward.

    EXPERIENCE: This was my first job out of college and the amount of business knowledge that I have learned is incredible. There is a lot of training at the beginning of the role, but you are instantly given responsibilities of your own. There is a lot of opportunity to get promoted quickly and work out of different offices around the world.

    MONEY: Great opportunity to make a lot of money if you put in the time.

    Cons

    TIME: this is not a problem for me, but this job is very time consuming. If you are not willing to put in a lot of work to succeed, you probably won't. This job truly requires a determined and hardworking individual.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure that training never stops!

    Pros

    Meltwater is a great place for someone looking for an entry-level sales position in the marketing/PR field.
    Heavy sales, but balanced between cold-calls, consultation, meetings, etc.
    A lot of opportunity for advancement and management, especially as a young professional. Promotions can happen relatively quickly if you work hard.

    Cons

    month to month quotas instead of quarterly

  9. Exciting company with a very energetic, start up feel to it. Immense potential for upward growth!

    Pros

    Very much a work hard, play hard atmosphere

    Company is full of young people so it's a great place to start right out of college.

    Culture is excellent - people are energized, engaging, motivated to achieve excellent results

    Cons

    Tough work-life balance, especially when you first begin but it evens out after the ramp-up period

    Day to day tasks can be a bit tough but those who stick it out absolutely reap the rewards!!

    Advice to Management

    Promote more of a work-life balance - some people feel uncomfortable taking time off

  10. Hard work, leads to great pay, great opportunities & great friends

    Pros

    Great culture, great friends, and great company to work for hands down. Everyone is extremely supportive & truly wants you to succeed. You learn so much about so many different industries, and have high level conversations with C-level execs constantly. Not to mention there is a ton of personal & professional growth you experience.

    Cons

    There is a ton of work in the beginning that you have to do, but it is all worth it. It can be at times a bit difficult to balance work and life in the first few months, but once you get your groove & experience it is doable.

    Advice to Management

    Some need to calm their tempers, and try not to get so upset with new people when they don't understand. There's a lot to take it, so it can sometimes be difficult to remember that you have been in the same position as the rest of us.

  11. Great work environment, tons of growth potential, best sales training

    Pros

    Meltwater values their employees more than any other asset. In the couple years that I've worked here, they are very accommodating to their employees needs to ensure that people are able to grow and enjoy working here. Culture is strong in a way that you feel you are a part of a supportive team atmosphere that has the winning attitude, but not at the expense of your colleagues (which is a rare find in a sales-driven organization). It's a great job to have in your 20's as there's office events/happy hours that make the overall experience unique and fun. The compensation plan is great with uncapped commission/solid bonus structure. The OTE (which I had thought in the interview process would be out of reach) is more than attainable too. If you work hard here, you will be very successful. They provide a lot of training and coaching to ensure that you reach your full potential.

    Cons

    Expect to work very hard, especially in your first couple of months. It's what you should expect in an entry-level job, but just keep in mind that this ramp-up period is short term.

    Advice to Management

    Better 401k plan, higher base salary
