    Great Job...

    I have been working at Nielsen

    Pros

    Not micromanaged, free reign to do your job, company car(can be either a ford fusion or escape), gas card, iPhone, management where I am is great, very very flexible, off weekends, good benefits. Very good pay if you hit bonus which is not hard. You can pretty much move anywhere in the US, and they will pay relocation costs.

    Cons

    We are supposed to be self scheduling reps, but the ladies in the office will at times schedule appointments and move things around in your schedule without asking. You're by yourself all day, so it does get lonely. Emails constatntly coming in, so you feel like you're on call. Equipment is old, but new equipment is on the way.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing. Overall, a great job. They're constantly trying to improve the environment for their employees.
