Does Nielsen offer relocation assistance?

Pros

- Brilliant client base already in place due to Nielsen being an established name / market leader, you'll get high exposure to some large brands and the ability to build relationships there. - Great working environment with some extremely clever people. - Great work / life balance with flexi working - The name will get you far after leaving Nielsen, instantly recognisable. - Majority of the senior management are great, you will learn a lot.

Cons

- Salaries across the board are extremely low for executives / managers, far lower than the industry average. - No benefits package or OTE for sales teams unless you were in a senior position (certain bands). - Extremely stagnant, little to no investment in certain areas of the UK business, heavy focus on US teams. - Little to no progression plans in place, promotions come around annually, if you are lucky and the increase is minimal.

Advice to Management

- Invest into your sales teams better. There was a distinct lack of motivation that came from having no compensation package in place.

No benefits package or OTE for sales teams unless you were in a senior position (certain bands).

Does Nielsen offer dental insurance?

Pros

The benefits are great; medical, dental, life, disability, vision, 401K, stock, etc.

Cons

When you're really good, they take you for granted and take advantage of you. The opportunities are out there but very few females are in upper management. I personally believe that there's a culture of the "good ol' boys club" and misogyny.

Advice to Management

Support the employees on the ground with a competitive base and commission/bonus structure. Appreciate those that are doing well. And get rid of the misogyny.
