    Nielsen used to have a great vacation plan, but switched to "me time" in 2017 which means you can take unlimited time off during the year with your manager's approval. However, the program was designed to lower costs for the company as they continually downsize the company. In essence, it's a way for the company to avoid paying employees for unused vacation if they are severenced out of Nielsen

    Unlimited time off - Hard to do with the volume of work however

    Unlimited vacation in US has good and bad qualities. Some take advantage and ruin it for others. We're told by management to take "around X days" depending on our role/tenure but the amount isn't bad.
