Great company coming out of College, but not sustainable

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Stamford, CT

I worked at The Nielsen Company

ProsWork with leading CPG companies
On hands training in market research
You learn a lot about time management and process flow
Great career starter

ConsLong hours
Crappy pay
Too much work load due to over promise from sales people
Company culture lacking
Tough to take a vacation, often cancel vacation due to deadlines

Advice to Senior ManagementConsider hiring more people and raising income levels to keep people around.
Don't claim you're a "talent factory" in order to retain talent. A "factory" implies that you're taking raw goods and forming it into finished goods to leave said factory. If that's your intent then change your slogan, it leaves a bad taste for your employees and makes them feel less valued and more like a product.
You're a good company and well known, but you don't play on that strength as much as you should.
Start generating a plan around work/life balance otherwise you will continue to run the risk of people leaving for better opportunities.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
