Just OK, but don't expect much from it

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Charlotte, NC

I worked at The Nielsen Company full-time for more than 3 years

ProsGood benefits, and generous PTO.

ConsToo much politics.
Large bureaucracy, difficult to get to people who make decisions.
No raises, no performance bonuses, nothing.
People that don't contribute to the team at all get promoted, and you just have to work your ass off and never even hear a simple "thank you".

Advice to Senior ManagementGuys, you're wasting your most valuable resources.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
