    Current GBS Emerging Leaders Associate in Tampa, Florida

    Nielsen's package is great when compared with your average company - 401k matching (3% for up to 6%), good health insurance with deductions for healthy living - but they are not among the best. Their salaries are on par but not higher than the competition, they don't have good fitness reimbursement programs, and they don't offer the free food/fancy perks that the top tech firms are known for.

    Nielsen's benefits plan is thorough and fair, but associates certainly aren't spoiled with perks.

    The best thing is that you get a discount for Healthy Meaures, the worst part is the cost of having a spouse or family on this coverage, the company charges you for that.

    The best things were the inclusion of an employer match with 401K and the healthy living discount on the health insurance program.

    Best: 401K administered by Fidelity
    Worst: Rising costs year-on-year

    4 weeks vacation plus floating holidays. Reasonable pay. 401k. Health Insurance is terrible. Only one option with high premiums amd high deductibles. No paternity leave for new dads.

    It's very expensive; however, the do offer reimbursement for healthy lifestyle activities (with proof)

    Best: Health, dental, sick days, vacation days, and personal days are available. They also have a 401K where they match a percentage. Legal and pet insurance is also available for a fee. They also have school reimbursement for undergrad and graduate.

    Worst: High co-pays and deductibles. There is a health screening and depending on the status employees get granted a discount or don't (I.e. BMI, smoker, etc). Vacation days are much less compared to the industry standard.

    Group Health insurance, Extremely expensive, high deductibles, cost and deductibles increase each year. Previous plan was better.
