    "Excellent place to work for career progression, personal development and culture, though not for the faint-hearted"

    I have been working at Meltwater full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I was hired into the London office right out of university, holding a degree unrelated to Sales; since starting, I've been continuously supported and guided by my managers and director. The corporate culture is ideal for anyone who is looking for a place of work that they're not rushing out of by the end of the day.

    Definitely not for the faint-hearted - expectations are high and the work itself is dynamic and fast-paced, although management are always keen to help and support both from a professional and personal standpoint.

    One thing I've struggled with is work/life balance due to the robustness of the role - work hours can indeed be long in the first months, but the culture of the company definitely encourages finding that balance.

    Perfect company to work at for anyone who is ambitious, driven and has a solid sense of humour; you will be recognized for your achievements and as long as you give it your all, you'll build a solid career at Meltwater.

    Cons

    Work/life balance can be an issue if not kept an eye on - it's definitely a company that hires the best and hardest working, so anyone not suited for the role will struggle to find a balance.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to foster the corporate culture and support for new entrants the way I experienced it - but also continue to challenge employees to help them develop into powerhouses.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Meltwater (London, England) in March 2020.

    Interview

    I applied online through the Meltwater website with my CV and cover letter. Soon after I received an email invitation for a telephone interview to get to know me and understand my motivation for Meltwater in a bit more detail. The email contained a link where I could choose the interview date and time that was the most appropriate for me. The phone interview lasted for a total of 20 minutes and the interviewer was very nice and easy going, which also made the interview experience slightly more relaxing than others that I have had.
