    I worked at Nielsen and Bainbridge full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Work-life balance is good - employees show up and leave on-time; this is most likely a result of the "bare-minimum" company culture.

    Cons

    Top-down management results in a dictation as opposed to collaboration; I've seen many, quality employees be stifled by authoritative upper-management. As a result, most employees have become disheartened and unmotivated - resulting in only completing the "bare-minimum" required.

    Additionally, poor communication within & between teams results in a lot of wasted/duplicative work.

    Unfortunately, I do not see this culture improving any time soon.

    Advice to Management

    Let go of the reins and let employees work to improve their daily processes; provide flexibility and encourage initiatives by celebrating motivated employees. Take time to listen to/include your employees in brainstorming discussions. Have more meetings to facilitate team communication/collaboration.

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

    Pros

    Its close to home and they have air conditioning break rooms. The guys rest rooms stay pretty clean. That's all I have to say about that.

    Cons

    To be honest with you, they treat their hard working employees like crap and treat the non working employees like they don't make them do anything and just stand around and basically just do what they want too! And the pay is low for forklift drivers which is $10:28 an hour and have to do 2 other jobs because the other employees won't do their job. And there always seems to be some employees or should I say most of them are always starting drama over stupid stuff instead of minding their own business and do their job!

    Advice to Management

    Get new management in the chop and shipping areas due to lack of poor management and supervision.

    None

    I worked at Nielsen and Bainbridge full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    you can mainly keep to yourself and deal with your job on your own.
    worked with pretty good people.
    if you like the metal industry its fun to learn about.

    Cons

    it can be a bit physically taxing.
    if you're a stretcher your wrists and arm will suffer.
    not too great on pay for the work done $8.00/ hr

    Advice to Management

    need people who care about their job and actually love doing it alot of people look at it as a job but personally i look at every job as my chosen career at the time. if people could work together it would be alot easier for everyone. hiring temps through agencies makes it rough because of standards.
