Former Employee - Six Sigma Black Belt in Oldsmar, FL

I worked at Nielsen full-time

Pros

If you can hold out until the company is out of the private equity's hands, you can help return it to its former status as a really good company that cares about its people.

Cons

Had several Master Black Belt supervisors within 2 yr period. All were primarily concerned with retaining their own position in the company than with mentoring, cultivating, providing guidance to the Black Belts on their respective teams.

Advice to Management

Learn to deliver on the "promises" made during BPI recruiting. Must begin providing appropriate levels of support in order to retain quality employees.

    Pros

    Flexibility to work from home (if you really need it, you can do it), cool clients and projects

    Cons

    I don't feel connected to the whole One Nielsen idea - there isn't much work connecting the Watch and Buy side of the company. It's not very organized and there isn't too much encouragement to learn about other parts of the money. Sometimes, I end up working too much to even realize what's going on in the other side of Nielsen.

    The pay could be better to retain people, or compensate of the lack of innovation and organization within the company.

    Advice to Management

    Bring out the ideas of One Nielsen!
