Pros

Exposure to big FMCG manufacturers' business and networking opportunities for future employment. Good analatical training and developement.

Cons

Nielsen salaries are way too low for the calibre of recruits. This leads to high staff turnover since even junior employees can earn more at other companies. The salary doesnt compensate for the poor work/life balance.
Promotions are also dependant on the accounts that the employee works on. If they are lucky enough to be be selected to work on a big/high spending client they will get promoted easier -despite not working as hard as other executives.

    Pros

    Solid business platform, well-poised for the future in most markets, great company reputation to rest on.

    Cons

    Slow moving for change, not much focus on integration of the different elements of the company, and lack of focus on training and leadership development.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the pressure on the diversity expansion within Expo. Empower leaders to take (smart) risks in Expo to change the old trade show culture and encourage an entrepreneurial, investment mindset that isn't fully negated with severe cost-cutting and short-term profit taking. Prioritize leadership development within the ranks so succession isn't a reaction but a plan.
