    Current Employee - Executive in Singapore (Singapore)

    I have been working at The Nielsen Company full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Challenging work with the opportunity to learn a great amount about Marketing.

    Cons

    The work load in Nielsen is really poorly managed. Official hours are 9.00am-5.30pm, but you will often work up until 11pm on most nights. In addition to that, working over weekends is very common. The compensation package (salary) is below average and when the amount of hours are factored in, it is not even worth it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Expansion should be supported with resources. The company would need to invest in new teams to help out with the workload. It is difficult to keep aiming for growth, year on year, but teams are expected to take on more workload to meet targets.
