Sales Associate (Former Employee) – New York, NY – October 26, 2018
It's unreal how unprofessional the people that work here are. Similar to a cult, if you don't sip the juice, you don't belong. They want your friends to ONLY be Meltwater people so when they ask you to work until 10pm you won't feel like you're working.
Fun workplace, not great if you don't work in Sales
Media Research Associate (Former Employee) – New York, NY – March 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.
Did not have to work late often, fun office
Not great pay unless in sales, often overlooked as a non-sales employee
Media Research Associate (Former Employee) – San Francisco, CA – October 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.
Media Research Associate (Current Employee) – Austin, TX – August 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.
Business Development Manager (Current Employee) – Miami, FL – February 20, 2016
Great company. Awesome culture. Respected Leadership. Bonus & Commission structure is attractive. Values employees. Opportunity for advancement. Recommended for people in entry-level sales as organization advances employees from within.

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.
Sales Consultant (Former Employee) – San Francisco, CA – February 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.
