I have been working at The Nielsen Company

Pros

Global company, career opportunities & development, great people.

Cons

Not structured for growth, under resourced, too many systems and reporting.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Regional management need to spend some time in Australia, they are oblivious to the impact they are having at a local level. Less time micro-managing, more time listening to the employees.

    I have been working at The Nielsen Company

    Pros

    Local company, some friendly people.

    Cons

    Below average salaries, package is pretty poor compared to other companies in the area.
    Shocking amount of offshoring to India means Finance function is now a "joke".
    Worst Finance team I have been a part of in 20 years.
    Outdated technology and software in Finance.
    No training for core competencies, mean the teams are inexperienced and incompetent.
    If you want to work for a first class Finance function, with great technology do not come to Nielsen, you will be severely disappointed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wake up and smell the coffee, the company isn't a great employer or place to work, and your biggest asset is PEOPLE, not those in INDIA!!
    It's only data - there are more important things in life!

    Doesn't Recommend

    I worked at The Nielsen Company

    Pros

    the employees are personable people. a lot of teamwork to do the projects together, good friendly environment to finish tasks together

    Cons

    the way the company is organized, a lot of pressure is put to data acquisition and data processing departments and sometimes this process gets very stressful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More attempts to reduce the stress of the work environment , and motivate the employees for a healthier lifestyle, which will translate to a happier work place.
