I have been working at The Nielsen Company full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Biggest player in industry, brand carries with clients and a lock on TV ratings does not hurt

Cons

The senior management team seems to want nothing to do with the employees, and I can't say I have ever seen the people like the CEO or CFO in the NY headquarters office more than a handful of times over numverous years. Products are a complete mess with half started projects that fall by the wayside for whatever is new and the leadership of business groups seem at odds with one another when not managing to their bonus target. Hyper political.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The amount of fear is evident. Are you proud of this?

    Pros

    Great teamwork, good benefits, lovely people to work with
    Good training provided

    Cons

    after 18 years of loyal service and giving my all i was made redundant and my job outsourced to India.
    Used to be a great company but all they care about is cutting costs and quality

    hope it comes back to bite you

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    stop the outsourcing the quality is going down hill, it is costing more outting right the errors being made.

    I know a lot of unhappy people still working there and waiting for your next cost cutting outsurce
