    Current Employee - Account Manager in Oxford, England (UK)

    I have been working at The Nielsen Company full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    There is structured training program in place which is great especially if you are a grad.
    For the more junior roles it is great experience and subject to meeting criteria promotion is very realistic
    Opportunity to move around departments

    Cons

    No work / life balance
    Lots of internal pressure on admin
    Under resourced, so a lot of juggling clients
    Middle management interested in pleasing bosses so put pressure on putting internal requests over client requests. You end up doing both, hence the work / life balance issue
    Low morale
    Initial wages OK, but little movement once your in

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think about the amount of internal admin. Removing this will enable employees to spend more time with clients. It will result in higher client satisfaction and therefore higher employee satisfaction. Employees will start to be able to manage the work / life balance
