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

Pros

The work is interesting and challenging. The people are known for being nice. If you are competent, there is opportunity to advance. However, people who want to be told what to do typically are managed out. I think this is a plus for the company. Associates must continually prove they are worth keeping. Seniority does not equal job security. Company supports work from home options.

Cons

Promotions are arbitrarily delayed and raises and bonuses are small. While this is a form of cost leadership it means strong young employees leave for competitive firms. Other benefits are lacking as well. Employees earn a third week of vacation after 3 years of employment. Other firms offer 5 from the start.

Advice to Management

Make the rewards more meaningful to increase the retention of top talent. Offer family friendly programs like daycare. Consider increasing benefits like vacation time to attract and keep talent.
