"Not a good place to work. Rip their employees off in bonus and wages. Department of Labor needs to take a look at what they are doing."
"Claritas used to be a good company to work for, but ever since Nielsen took over and hired Tata Consulting to handle the IT, the company has gone down hill."
"I have work for this company Nielsen/SRDS 3 years. This is a good company with good job environment."
"I have worked for Nielsen for last 6+ years and definitely a great company with respect to its line of business, foot print and global coverage."
"It's really very good to work with Nielsen."
"Nice company to work, need more management and the leads have to know more about technical requirements to know the specific dates to deliver, and the technical leads need to know how to resolve functional problems and more management."
"The leader in TV and radio ratings industry since Nielsen bought Arbitron in 2013."
"As a first corporate job out of college, it can be a great experience. As an experienced technician, the base pay is very low and the bar for incentive bonuses is set very high (it is not just you but your whole market determines if you see the $)."
"I have found Nielsen to be an Average company that is underachieving and inconsistent. It squanders resources but has enormous potential. It could be dominating the market but it struggles. I think it is an average place to work with below average managers. They do not relate well to employees , they merely follow HR rules."
"This company is slowly losing it's strength."
"Nielsen is a great company, but I'm really looking for eventual prospering work."
"I worked for Nielsen for 2 years. It was the most sexist company I ever worked for. The management were all good ole boy bullies and HR refused to address any issues. It was impossible to get time off for vacation. Most employees are part-time but have the carrot of full-time dangled in front of them and never get better pay or benefits. The benefits package is expensive and raises are nonexistent. Layoffs and outsourcing are common. Managers actively work to block people from promotion."
"I worked for Nielsen for 7-months. I was so excited to be hired by this company, however it was a big mistake of my career. Mgmt is a bully by threading to fire you weekly, very stressful. Bonus is a joke they find ways not to pay you. They allow FRs to backout your homes and you have no control. FIELD RESEARCHERS - DO NOT WORK FOR THIS COMPANY!!!"
"I worked at Arbitron/Nielsen Audio for 10+ years. Arbitron had very good benefits and competitive pay. However, it changed tremendously after the Nielsen acquisition. Our department was retained long enough for Nielsen to retrain new employees at less than half our compensation. Nielsen Audio should not be confused with the quality of work Arbitron provided. Nielsen Audio methodology appears to be substandard to Arbitron's."
