    Business Development Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA (US)
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at GlobalData (San Francisco, CA (US)).

    Interview

    Had a phone interview with the VP which I was excited about and nervous due to his high position.... so I thought. He clearly didn’t even look at my resume. He was 15 min late and when I was answering questions he didn’t seem to listen. He also asked very odd questions, not sure if it’s a cultural thing he did have a heavy English accent . Most unprofessional interview experience and waste of time I didn’t want to move forward with process. I have an extensive resume and regret applying in the first place. Should have checked these reviews first before applying.

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at GlobalData (San Francisco, CA (US)) in October 2018.

    Interview

    Got called in for in person interview by olde English boy! Seems like a nice guy up until he blows you off without any response. If you’re a fan of a superficial work environment- this is your place to go! Believe his name is Gary- smiles to your face, and ripping you behind your back.

    Business Development Executive Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at GlobalData in March 2018.

    Interview

    Initially a face to face with a manager (who didn't show) so another manager took it. Was fairly run of the mill and rather 'basic'.

    It then too 2.5 weeks for my absolute penguin of a recruiter to get me a final interview which was done over the phone instead of face to face??? Very unprofessional and unusual.

    The offer came back and basically was paltry, the basic and package were laughable in respects to my experience and the additional 'perks' were virtually non-existent.

    In addition to the joke of a base salary, I was offered 19. YES NINETEEN DAYS annual leave, (I think that's illegal in the UK) and there was no healthcare package or pension package offered. My recruiter tried to get me to accept this whack package and I flatly refused it. Plus having seen the Glassdoor reviews panning many aspects of the GlobalData PLC business, I am actually glad I dodged a bullet here.

    Avoid GlobalData like the plague, rather you go for a business like GfK or Mintel who have a better reputation in the BI Market Data space.

    Sales Manager Interview

    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at GlobalData (New York, NY (US)) in March 2017.

    Interview

    It was perfunctory at best. They didn't seem to listen to the answers I provided to their questions and didn't ask follow ups. The interviewer seemed demoralized and not entirely happy about his own position with the company.

    Business Development Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at GlobalData (New York, NY (US)).

    Interview

    Interviewed by the one of the upper managers. He was a rude, arrogant, disrespectful person. He stalked everyone from my former company to have them come in to the office for an interview. He began to talk about my former colleagues. Extremely unprofessional. I wish I read the reviews on glassdoor before accepting the role. It needs a lot of cleaning up

    Programmer Analyst Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at GlobalData (New York, NY (US)) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Applied through LinkedIn and was contacted by a company recruiter based in London. Scheduled an interview a week after. The manager was nice and professional but the other person (tech person) was a little pushy and seemed not interested. Anyway, both of them were friendly. A week after, I got a rejection email from the same recruiter. I was not surprised and not upset about it because I knew I wouldn't fit and don't have all the expected skill sets.
