Current Employee - Associate Client Director in Los Angeles, CA
Current Employee - Associate Client Director in Los Angeles, CA

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

Pros

career growth opportunities, regular reviews, smart co-workers, good bonus opportunities, the company is always expanding in to new areas of market research - if you're bored (but good) you should be able to find a new challenge internally

Cons

long hours are expected of employees, as with any job your manager can make a big difference - sometimes employees who are not yet ready to manage have direct reports

    Just part of a number game, can get rid of you or wait for you to quit without any regrets
    Low salary
    Not growing in terms of product development or customer support
    Poor management
    Eating up on old products, and lucky to still have a list of contract

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to start thinking ahead before you are buying all these small companies. What's the point of getting a group of talented people, but then you don't want to grow the business, just let it die out. You are losing customers day by day. Stop thinking that you are the only one out there...stay competitive. More importantly, listen to your employees for feedback. Don't make promises if you can't keep them.
