    Great benefits and the medical plans are pretty good.

    They continue to work to improve benefits for employees and add things such as parental leave. A lot of perks like volunteer time and flexibility to work from home. Also have a lot of health and wellness plans. They offer 401K match, stock purchase discounts, but no retirement plans/pension.

    Unlimited Vacation as long as your manager approves. What happens if you get a bad manager? It also means no unused vacation payout if you get laid off. Nielsen Stock Purchase Plan is a terrible deal; 5% discount, capped contributions, no liquidity. Not to mention, stock price has been sliding for many quarters. Anybody who bought in since it was unveiled has lost significant money. Nobody but executives get stock grants or options. 401K match 50% up to 3% of base pay, pretty standard. Bonuses dependent on company performance, line of business performance, and finally personal performance. Very common for significant fluctuation, even for high performers. For a number of years, bonus targets were based on prior year payouts; people lost their bonus entirely because of poor company and group performance and it never came back. Great adoption benefits, unremarkable health plan coverage, and all of the regular optional benefits you find at Big Corp such as legal, dental, vision, long/short term disability. Have a feeling with the recent instability, benefits will be cut or "traded" for lower value options in the future. Cheesy employee discounts through BlackRock, almost never worth it. For a long time, a great culture of remote working, but has recently shifted again to emphasize office attendance between Chicago and Tampa offices.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Employee in New York, New York State

    Pretty happy with the benefits but they could add LT Disability to the mix to round it out.

    Health Benefits are costly. The company tries to offset these costs by offering other ways to save.
