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

Pros

Autonomy, pay for performance, and working in the field with good people.

Cons

The job is ending. The new meter tested in Dallas is a sign that less technical people will be needed in the future. Start looking for other jobs now. The VP who switched from Ops to MR side lets you know where the company is headed. This meter is a plug in the wall and report device. Not very technical and a minimally technical MR could install it. It was a great job while it lasted.

Advice to Management

Just sell us already.

    I have been working at Nielsen full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Pay is reasonably good, and benefits are ok, unless you live in an area where United Healthcare isn't a big insurer. Generally a well respected company, which is nice. "Meritocracy' is good in theory...

    Cons

    The execution of meritocracy is so dependent on your manager that it isn't really a meritocracy. It all comes down to how "connected" you are with others (above you, that is). There is a constant push to "do more," but some times, you just can't do as much as management wants you to. They are slow to fill vacancies to save some money while the current employees pick up the slack of empty positions.

    Advice to Management

    Work with off-site employees more. Find an alternative healthcare program for people in areas not well served by United Healthcare.
