    I worked at Visual Meta full-time (More than a year)


    Nice culture, Friday beer, international and quite easygoing environment.


    Very poor and inexperienced management. They have very strange structure so instead of team lead they give straight away a head title to people who barely have any experience, it’s enough if they worked in the company 2 + years to get promoted to a head title ... the issue is that not many ppl stay long in the company. HR is generally pretty good and helpful but also don’t have enough power to make a change. It’s just another over 10 years old start up that I feel quite fed up with. Come on ! Over 70% of tasks are administrative so forget that you actually will be able to develop your skills and help improve performance of your clients as the most time you will spend doing paperwork, chasing invoices .... and be more like a customer service. There is also lack of development which is disappointing especially that they company is under Axel Springer and offers lots of courses after your probation period but don’t get too excited most of them are not related to your job position, so you can only use some of them for your personal development which is at least something. Taking under consideration that most probably you won’t have much time to attend them as administrative tasks will take all your time ...oh and forgot to mention that many of the heads love micromanage so get used to they will look at your screen and check where are you going and for how long ...

    Advice to Management

    Start paying higher salaries. It would be nice to be able to get a pay rise higher than 2%, which is literally a joke! Also work on better bonus system that actually motivates ppl and first of all is achievable. Start hiring more experienced and professional people as team leads ( called heads in your unusual hierarchy) , who has already at least few years of experience as team leads etc.

    Online PR Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Paris (France)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Visual Meta (Paris (France)) in October 2016.


    J'ai postulé pour le poste de Online PR Manager chez Visual Meta en Octobre. Ils m'ont contacté une semaine après.

    Le process s'est déroule en 3 étapes.

    1) Entretien téléphonique de 15 minutes avec les ressources humaines où nous avons parlé principalement de mon parcours, de ma compréhension du poste et des missions, de l'entreprise, mais il y avait également des questions techniques relatives au poste.

    2) Une fois ce premier entretien validé, j'ai reçu un message m'invitant à réaliser un exercice en rapport avec les missions proposées par la position. J'avais quatre jours pour envoyer cette task.

    3) Quelques jours plus tard j'ai reçu un email me signalant que le premier entretien ainsi que la task avait été validé et que 2 managers aimeraient continuer avec un entretien de 1h30 par Skype. L'entretien s'est très bien passé, avec encore une fois des questions sur mon parcours professionnel et académique, le poste et l'entreprise m'ont été présenté clairement. Les managers m'ont posé des questions technique également.
