What don't you like about working at Nielsen?

It's a never ending environment of chaos centered on productivity gains. You may appreciate this if you're an investor. Not so much if you're a client or employee. Its a machine with a focus on productivity, efficiency and market cap. No vision for how they'll stay in business in the future."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"None. The people you hire to turn a business around are generally not qualified to run it."
