Disapproves of CEO

I worked at Nielsen full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Good benefits, and generous PTO.

Cons

Too much politics.
Large bureaucracy, difficult to get to people who make decisions.
No raises, no performance bonuses, nothing.
People that don't contribute to the team at all get promoted, and you just have to work your ass off and never even hear a simple "thank you".

Advice to Management

Guys, you're wasting your most valuable resources.

    I have been working at Nielsen full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Paycheck is deposited on time

    Cons

    Terrible cut throat environment and many coworkers jobs are getting outsourced over seas. This company is part of the big problem in the US, outsource jobs to get the P&L looking better no matter what damage it does to families or the economy. Pitiful company that should go the way of all greedy self serving companies, away for the good of all.

    Advice to Management

    Find a place with integrity to work.
