What do you like about working at Nielsen?

"Some intelligent, dedicated quality people still remain in the company."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"I would avoid it if possible unless you can't find anything else."

What don't you like about working at Nielsen?

"Benefits are among the least competitive in the industry. Salaries are not competitive. No employee can be comfortably assured of a job next week. 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."

What do you like about working at Nielsen?

"This is the worst company I have ever worked for"

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"Do not work for this company. It would be a terrible move especially with them constantly downsizing."

What don't you like about working at Nielsen?

"Where do I begin The pay is abysmal. You're overworked. No one listens to your ideas. You are treated like a dog and basically told to shut up. There is ZERO opportunity to move up or even laterally to a different division. Good luck ever getting a raise. They are constantly laying people off...scratch that...finding reasons to fire them so they don't have to lay people off."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Wake up. The top down communication is poor at best. There are to many managers all worried about covering their own butts and saving their jobs. They are not taught how to be effective managers"
