    Former Employee in Los Angeles, California

    Great benefits package compared to other companies.

  • Apr 14, 2015
    Former Trilingual (Spanish/Portuguese/English) Assoc Help Sup Analyst in Oldsmar, Florida

    Full time has health and dental insurance from the first day. Two weeks vacation in the first year. Ten sick/emergency days.

  • Apr 13, 2015
    Former Senior Production Specialist in Columbia, Maryland

    The deductibles are extremely high and the employee assumes most of the healthcare costs.

    Current Employee in Parsippany, New Jersey

    Benefits aren't bad, but also aren't great.

  • Mar 26, 2015
    Current Employee in Wilton, Connecticut

    Initial vacation time is just 10 days but they're open to negotiate. Ability to work from home and flexible schedule is a huge perk.

  • Mar 23, 2015
    Current Employee in Columbia, Maryland

    Vision and Dental benefits a great and reasonably priced.

    Current Professional Services, Analyst in Cincinnati, Ohio

    They match 50% of your 401k contributions up to 6%, so that is nice and is something that many companies are phasing out. The health care packages are definitely above average. Vacation time and 'working from home' when feeling under the weather are very flexible.

    Current Employee in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

    Health insurance premium and deductible is relatively high, 401K and time-off is OK, vacation days based upon number of years served in the company

    Healthy Care Cons: At my location Nielsen is self-insured, administered by United Health Care. Premiums, co-pays, deductibles and out-of-pocket max are high. Premiums are tiered, based on salary. Prescription drug coverage in poor. They review all your Rx's and if you're on a name -brand our non-preferred drug, you have to try three of their approved alternatives before you can apply for them to pay your old brand. This is highly disruptive and interfere in the doctor/patient relationship. Vision is VSP and they have a limited selection of eyeglass frames at high prices. If you want to go to a non-VSP optician, you pay full price unless you can find a sale.

    Health Care Pros: All my doctors, including specialists, are on the plan. You can see a specialist without going to a PCP first. Vision and Dental premiums are reasonable.

    401(k) is through Fidelity. Workable selection of funds. Company matches 50% of your first 6% of contributions, so that's free money.

    4 weeks of paid vacation. 10 paid sick days. 3 paid personal days.

    Optional life insurance and long-term disability available - employee pays premiums.

    20% employee discount on Verizon data plays, but it can take up to SIX billing cycles to go into effect.
