Meritocracy is a motto, not a value they live by. Senior Management manages by cliches, not through leadership.

I worked at The Nielsen Company

Pros

The company has a good name recognition in and outside the industry.

Cons

Executives rotate through business units in 3 year cycles, hence they make short term decisions and don't invest in people or innovate new products. Executives just want their numbers to look good and then leave the problems for the next Executive rotating through.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Invest in the people (employees). If you take care of the people, they will take care of the clients. If you take care of the clients they will take allow management to make their numbers.

    If you are not part of the crowd you are gone
    They are not honest in what they are doing.
