A very uninspiring place to work

Senior Analyst (Current Employee)
San Francisco, CA

ProsBrand name, exposure to large clients, global company.

ConsTerrible morale, problems with attrition, uninspiring middle-managers, lack of transparency, extremely bureaucratic, inflated titles, noncompetitive salaries, too much micromanagement.

Advice to Senior ManagementThere is a reason every analyst at Nielsen is miserable. It's about time someone started asking the right questions and acting on the problems to turn the morale issues around. Hiring smart people from top colleges and letting them waste away at dead end jobs will not be sustainable for long term growth. Unless of course you're fine with hiring all leaders from outside.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
