Cold Calls
Sales Consultant (Former Employee) –  Washington, DCNovember 7, 2017
The Job is literally smile and dial. Keep calling people who you've never met and will probably reject you until you shove a useless product down their throats and they eventually buy it.
Pros
ping pong table
Cons
stressful, cut throat, pestering

Not for everyone
Senior Sales Consultant (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILJuly 12, 2017
The work life balance is very tough, especially in your first year. The culture is very young and fun, but the job very much becomes the main aspect of your life. Management could be much better.

Fun workplace, not great if you don't work in Sales
Media Research Associate (Former Employee) –  New York, NYMarch 28, 2017
Fun, relaxed office culture. However, if you do not work in sales then you definitely feel like an outsider. Sales is the priority in the company and the sales support/media employees are often overlooked.
Pros
Did not have to work late often, fun office
Cons
Not great pay unless in sales, often overlooked as a non-sales employee

Exciting workplace for new college grads

Meltwater is a fun and exciting company with a young culture, however, the management is also very young. It is great for people looking for a fast-paced, sales atmosphere.

fun workplace
Media Research Associate (Former Employee) –  San Francisco, CAOctober 14, 2016
I worked in a mostly data entry position, so the culture for hourly employees is different than salaried. It's a lot more cutthroat with needless pressure and pointless milestones that result in partial loss of bonus.
Pros
free lunch, nice people
Cons
poor leadership in some departments

Youthful environment
Media Research Associate (Current Employee) –  Austin, TXAugust 8, 2016
The company has a very youthful vibe. Workplace attempts to be inclusive and laid back. Job itself is very simple. Unfortunately there isn't much room for growth/promotion unless moving into different area of the company.
Pros
Good benefits package, laid back environment
Cons
No room for promotion

Great place to work with growth opportunity
Sales Consultant (Current Employee) –  Washington, DCFebruary 11, 2016
The culture is something Meltwater prides themselves on- the company is young but driven. Days are long, but the music and environment make it an enjoyable place to work. Management provides the tools and resources to grow within the company if that's something that's expressed.

The hardest part of the job: learning curve in the beginning and work/life balance.

Great place to begin a career
Client Onboarder (Current Employee) –  Austin, TXJanuary 16, 2016
Meltwater is a fast-paced sales organization. Even though official office hours are 9 hours per day, Meltwater employees are dedicated to their roles and work well over 50 hours per week.

At this organization, young, vivacious candidates are selected to join a team of enthusiastic online news and social media consultants.

Promotions often occur before two years have completed in employees career at the company, and management teams are frequently changed.

At the core of Meltwater's culture is the desire to be the best, having a fun, positive attitude, and respect for others and targets.
Pros
Solid benefits, employees socialize outside of work, interesting software insights. MEST Foundation is inspiring.
Cons
Average age of employees is roughly 26, which could be good or bad.

All smoke and mirrors with this company
Sales Consultant (Former Employee) –  San Francisco, CAFebruary 11, 2015
Make the job sound fancy while interview, once you start you come to realize it's just a really stressful cold calling job.

Management - they promote those who can sell, which does NOT make them manager material. Terrible coaching and management style.

Culture is the best part of the job, but only when outside of the office.

Way too stressful, most likely a pyramid scheme as managers as well as those above them get paid on your performance. Absolutely zero work/life balance. I was working 65 hours a week and it "wasn't good enough" Was told to put in more time for the same pay.
Pros
cool events
Cons
no work/life balance
