Current Employee - Membership Representative in New York, NY
Current Employee - Membership Representative in New York, NY
Approves of CEO

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

Pros

Everyday is different. You will never get bored.

Cons

Too many organizational changes. Hard to keep up with them because by the time you learn the new procedure, a new one is on the way...

Advice to Management

While its good to implement changes, it will be better if you allow personel to cope with "leraning time"

    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Great corporate vision
    Interesting colleagues
    Exposure to market data, leading to different career opportunities

    Cons

    In ability to exeuce the corporate vision
    Lack of internal cooperation to acheive corporate goals
    Poor leaders in middle management (tend to promote strong analysts)

    Advice to Management

    The right moves at the top are taking place. There is a hold up in middle manage that is creating downstream problems. Find it and fix it. Then Nielsen moves from good to great.

    "A very uninspiring place to work"

    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Brand name, exposure to large clients, global company.

    Cons

    Terrible morale, problems with attrition, uninspiring middle-managers, lack of transparency, extremely bureaucratic, inflated titles, noncompetitive salaries, too much micromanagement.

    Advice to Management

    There is a reason every analyst at Nielsen is miserable. It's about time someone started asking the right questions and acting on the problems to turn the morale issues around. Hiring smart people from top colleges and letting them waste away at dead end jobs will not be sustainable for long term growth. Unless of course you're fine with hiring all leaders from outside.
