    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Nielsen full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    WFH. Office location. Flexible working hours.

    Cons

    Even with an exceeds expectations annual rating, no bonus, no raise. Last year, they hired someone with less technical and general overall data science experience to a position above me and have been told numerous times that I am outperforming him, yet I received no pay increase or recognition. On top of that, I have more responsibilities than the person above me. Then, they proceeded to hire two more Lead Data Scientists from external, again with less work experience than me. So I am the lone person at the bottom of the totem pole even though I have consistently been the top performer. Thirdly, I found out from a coworker that I am being severely underpaid compared to others with the same title and upper management expressed shock that I requested a pay increase. I just don't understand Nielsen. DO NOT WORK HERE IF YOU VALUE YOUR WORTH.
