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

    Pros

    Close to my home. Looks good on a resume. Lots of training for work you will never get to do until you leave the place.

    Cons

    The outsourced everything and more everyday. It takes 5 days just to get a password reset on the mainframe. Used to take 5 mins. No one to ask questions about the data to as they have let go of people that had the data knowledge.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Good luck with the outsourcing. You are very close to breaking the business and I don't think you know it yet. Outsourcing American jobs is not the right thing to do for your country and you are only hurting yourself and your generations to come. I guess you can look at yourself in the mirror because all you see is the dollar signs.

    I worked at The Nielsen Company full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    People you work with are cool. Not confined to an office. Company car. Supervisor isn't breathing down your neck or looking over your shoulder

    Cons

    TERRIBLE pay for the amount of responsibility you have. Hardly any opportunities for advancement. Upper management is totally clueless about what it's like to be out in the field. Sub-standard equipment. Metering equipment is antiquated. They know of the problems that occur in the field, but they don't want to spend the money to make it better. Too worried about the bottom line and not enough about employee satisfaction. Work/Life balance is severely lacking. Work 8+ hours, go home and do 2 more hours of paperwork... schedule your calls for the next day, or week...get all the equipment ready for your upcoming installs/calls. Major burn-out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your employees better. Eventually, the economy will get better and people won't have to stick it out in a crappy paying job. Invest in your employees. They're the "face of the company", and your faces aren't looking too happy.

    No opinion of CEO
