Working at Niesen looks great on the resume especially if you are in the CPG industry. I also was paid pretty nicely.
The pay was nice but I should have known from the start that he company had issues. I relocated to New Jersey for the position from the Midwest and the whole relocation process was botched. I was on a smaller client service team. My manager had no business managing people. He had 2 people under him and 3 people had left under him in the past 18 months. That didn't seem to bother Nielsen though. Anyway, the culture of the team was very 9-5. My first week there I was questioned why I was staying past 5pm. I think they were afrain I would harder then others. After about a month on the job I approached my boss to see if he was happy with progress and to see if there were things he noticed that I should focus on. He got up and left meeting and told me to never bother him again with questions like those. It was tough to complain though because the money was pretty good and I could come in at 9 and leave on 5 on the dot. My performance review lasted all of 3 minutes. They just didn't care about employee development. After 18 months I knew it was time to move on. Shortly after my departure the client dropped Nielsen and I probably would have been left without a job.
Advice to Management
Nielsen needs to focus on the client. Stop outsourcing everything and alienating the client. Invest in employee development and create a culture, any culture as there is no culture currently.
