Disapproves of CEO

Pros

The company is involved in a lot of different industries so there is some exposure into many areas of the economy. There is also a wealth of market data and trending to dig into.

Cons

It is very hard to get anything new off the ground. New initiatives are met with resistance especially if there is a need for new resources. Management is focused on cutting costs and gradually people have been purged from the company.

Advice to Management

I don't believe leadership is managing for long-term growth. Instead, they are managing for near-term margin so the PE firms can sell out (and so senior management can as well).

    I have been working at Nielsen full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Company vehicle
    - Work independently

    Cons

    - Management is disastrous, they are ignorant and unprepared to be managers, therefore working for them is a nightmare.
    - It is a male world, females are not given same opportunities or treatment as males.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in training your supervisors and managers. In return you will have more production and less turnover. Teach your supervisors/managers that the company's culture and values apply to their position and the way they should treat those that are managed by them.
