Great learning experience though pathetic compensation

I have been working at The Nielsen Company

Pros

- the learning experience here is great
- growth is fast if you are a high potential
- movement within the company is possible and encouraged

Cons

- salaries are drastically different for local vs foreign employees, European and American employees (in Asia) make at-least 30-50% more than their local counterparts in teh same office - this is very discouraging and unfair

Advice to ManagementAdvice

re-think the salary structures and don't abuse the word 'meritocracy' its a shame that good local talent is running away from the company and the higher management is completely turning a blind eye to this fact.

    In a really bad state

    Pros

    Well known overseas. But not always well regarded. Some interesting products or services but nothing really new or "smart". Some of them are even "broken".

    Cons

    China Senior management is really bad. They believe that unless you worked in BASES you are useless. Unfortunately, some of the most useless people have a long history in BASES, some others just recently involved in BASES. They sound OK but really are very small - in every way - except their mouths.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring some experienced Asia managers in. Lose the ones who are only interested in the selling off of the company - start this at the top.
