Former Employee - Field Representative
Former Employee - Field Representative

I worked at The Nielsen Company full-time (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.

    I have been working at The Nielsen Company

    Pros

    Many different business & countries to work in, if you build the right network with management & HR. Senior management is generally very good, as are some individual leaders.

    Cons

    Quality of individual business leaders & managers can be hit or miss. Some parts of the company can be overly political.
