    Pros

    WFH, flexible, Warm culture, growth opportunities, Mobility policies, great people to work with

    Cons

    low pay master, incentives and increments very low, need to match industry standards in terms of remuneration

    Advice to Management

    Come at par with industry in terms of salary and increments every year need to be increased. people are demotivated due to lower pay packages.Its a wonderful place to be associated with but does not suit all levels in terms of remuneration

    Pros

    Good place to work and lots to learn, lots of opportunity to move from one division to another internally, flexible in terms of working from home.

    Cons

    Less transparency, Not very pro-employee, less benefits for employees, long working hours without compensation.

    Advice to Management

    Must understand the work pressure and employ more people if and when required, instead of making one person do two persons job.

    Pros

    Excellent Work culture
    Hand holding
    Simple
    Open
    Integrated
    Excellent training provided

    Cons

    Not all managers are uniformly flexible
    Uneven work distribution with some insensitive bias too
    Merit based rewards system not standardized, some regions are much more trigger happy.

    Advice to Management

    Please try and enforce uniformity in the Rewards pattern
    Management should be reined in, in case of oddities in methods

    Pros

    You are given responsibility from the beginning. Learn a lot in short time and your hardwork is noticed. Visibility is never problem.
    Nielsen experience is valued across the market research industry.

    Cons

    In client servicing you end up answering the client on issues created by other support teams of Nielsen. Support teams here do not take much responsibility for their part of work.

    Appraisal process and bonus payout system is such that it favors the organisation more than the employee.
