Good for Sales people, Bad for anyone else
Sales Consultant (Former Employee), New York, NYJanuary 15, 2013
Pros: fun work environment, comradeship with your coworkers, smart/ambitious coworkers, pay structure that rewards results
Cons: long hours, own lead gen, very "sales-y", little job security
As a "sales consultant" you reach out to businesses over the phone to try and showcase whichever Meltwater product you work on. From there you try to sell them the SaaS.

You will need to find your own leads and control the whole sales process pretty much by yourself.

You do have a fair amount of help in the beginning but it doesn't get much easier – more... as time goes on.

The good thing is that everyone around you is in the same boat so you get to be close to your coworkers.

There is a $48 K base pay on top of which you get commission and bonus depending on how much you sell, how much your team sells, etc. If you are good/interested in sales, this is a good place for you.

This is mainly phone sales so if you are not interested in making the next sale regardless of whether you need to make 100 phones calls over the next 2 hours, then this is NOT the company for you. – less

Cons: young managers - 23 years of age ave!
Each sales consultant was responsible for the client onboarding process from start to finish - prospect to client. I spoke to business leaders each day providing proof of concept materials and how numerous clients in their industry were using the brand
