    I worked at Nielsen full-time (more than 10 years)


    The Nielsen business domain is very unique and interesting. I enjoyed working with many bright and talented co-workers. The business is technology driven, which means there is excellent exposure for those in IT.


    The private equity firm had some positive influences in terms of taking a global approach to the business and rationalizing operating platforms and realizing other advantages of global scale. But they also outsourced every single person and function humanly possible. There is never-ending cycle of cost cutting via annual headcount reductions. Anyone with a significant amount of experience is at risk as they typically have a higher salary level. A favorite tactic is to over-promote young "emerging leaders" to lower their cost structure. Unfortunately, this industry relies heavily on domain expertise and experience. The Nielsen tactics help the bottom line, but will hurt them in the long run as their organizational memory is slowly being purged and is not replaced via the outsourcing firm (Tata), which has significant turnover itself.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You're mortgaging the future by not harnessing some way to retain institutional knowledge to insure long-term viability and effectiveness in a very specialized domain. Tread get what you pay for.
