    Current Employee - Client Services Director in San Francisco, CA

    I have been working at Nielsen full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good opportunities for training, exposure to high profile clients, smart and motivated colleagues, nice location just outside of downtown San Francisco

    Cons

    Leadership at all levels is lacking immensely, particularly in the Telecom business unit based out of San Francisco. Work/life balance is very poor at times with little concern or appreciation from senior management

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize that such high turnover means that management is doing something wrong. Many highly qualified and productive employees are asked to leave and there is a high volume of turnover among those younger associates who must take on greater workloads as a result

    I worked at Nielsen full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    People you work with are cool. Not confined to an office. Company car. Supervisor isn't breathing down your neck or looking over your shoulder

    Cons

    TERRIBLE pay for the amount of responsibility you have. Hardly any opportunities for advancement. Upper management is totally clueless about what it's like to be out in the field. Sub-standard equipment. Metering equipment is antiquated. They know of the problems that occur in the field, but they don't want to spend the money to make it better. Too worried about the bottom line and not enough about employee satisfaction. Work/Life balance is severely lacking. Work 8+ hours, go home and do 2 more hours of paperwork... schedule your calls for the next day, or week...get all the equipment ready for your upcoming installs/calls. Major burn-out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your employees better. Eventually, the economy will get better and people won't have to stick it out in a crappy paying job. Invest in your employees. They're the "face of the company", and your faces aren't looking too happy.
