New management from Nielsen has taken all the fun out of the place.

Lighten up a bit. New management is very mean spirited.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Similar to a temp job. Can work up to 60 hours during peak times. Pretty straight-forward routine daily. Great for those who want to work a 4-6 week periods with lulls in between. Mainly a place for retirees and folks who want to work part-time or seasonally.

    Cons

    Like any call center job it is very repetitive. More so than customer service since you're reading a script call after call. During down times a severe lack of hours. Promotions and full-time positions are hard to come by.

    Advice to Management

    A more definite career ladder and individual attention. Be more pro-active in seeking out talent for promotion and training opportunities.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Work-life balance, flex schedules, can work remotely depending on role, awesome people

    Cons

    Inefficient use of resources, re-org messy and mis-guided

    Advice to Management

    2010 re-org in Analytics forces specialization and depth of skill-set at the expense of breadth.
    Pre- reorg, the choice was made by employees, where they could be specialists or generalists based on their interest. Should have stayed that way for employee satisfaction.
