    I worked at Brandwatch full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It has good environment and great people.
    The balance between familiar and work life is also good.

    Cons

    Maybe the salary is a little bit below average, especially for an expensive city like Brighton.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Brandwatch (Brighton, England) in December 2017.

    Interview

    First there was a phone call from a recruiter, just a first filter. Every requirement was satisfied and I have experience in every task listed so...

    We agreed on a time for a video interview with the 'hiring manager' which went fairly smoothly taking into account there were delays due to rather poor internet connection. Probably a couple of the questions made by the interviewer could have been more concise or clear. In my opinion to have 'the correct answer' to a situation you should define the situation first. Anyway, every question with an answer, every aspect treated, no significant mishaps or jams.

    Third phone call to inform of unsuccessful application. The reasons given were not 100% convincing to me i. e 'Answers not as expected', 'It looked like he had to drag the answers out of you' while none of these was my experience from my point of view as explained above.

    Overall it is true that more could have been said and discussed in more detail, as always. But to the extent as to affirm the answers were not as expected... :/

    From other reviews too, it looks like Brandwatch tries to secure a relation of mutual confidence before hiring someone which is fair enough. Thus, better avoid video interviews as it means avoiding misunderstandings and wrong approaches.
