Neutral Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

I have been working at Nielsen full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Biggest player in industry, brand carries with clients and a lock on TV ratings does not hurt

Cons

The senior management team seems to want nothing to do with the employees, and I can't say I have ever seen the people like the CEO or CFO in the NY headquarters office more than a handful of times over numverous years. Products are a complete mess with half started projects that fall by the wayside for whatever is new and the leadership of business groups seem at odds with one another when not managing to their bonus target. Hyper political.

Advice to Management

The amount of fear is evident. Are you proud of this?

    I have been working at Nielsen part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible schedule ( Call Center Only )

    Cons

    Boring, repeating the same thing over and over again. Also they should offer work from home for this type of work as many other call centers are doing now.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the Personal Performance Evaluation, and making employees to explain how they're Simple Open and Integrated. Most associates don't know or really care they're just there to do their job to the best of their abilities. Also, most associates prefer to be evaluated by their managers so they can improve on their performance.
