A very uninspiring place to work

I have been working at The Nielsen Company full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Brand name, exposure to large clients, global company.

Cons

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

Advice to ManagementAdvice

There 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.

    I have been working at The Nielsen Company full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The people are amazing. They are so smart, really fun, and great to be around.
    The work is really interesting, never dull, really challenging, but in a wonderful way.
    Very flexible in working from home.
    Lots of opportunities... IF you get lucky with your management.

    Cons

    Terrible work life balance... Long hours and no recognition.
    Sometimes feels like you get punished for being good at your job (ie. get more work, have to help other people), while people who are struggling get it really easy (ie. shorter hours, lighter workload).
    I want to love my job, and I think I could, but every day I see tremendously intelligent people getting screwed over in terms of management, raises, bonuses, recognition, workload... etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Morale is very low. You have some of the smartest people around, try and make them happy. They really don't want to go, you're kind of just giving them no other choice.
