"Oursourcing, horrible culture, hours were borderline slavery"

What do you like about working at Nielsen?

"They allowed telecommuting. Guess that's about all I can think of."

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

"Unless you are desperate for a paycheck or are a career man/woman who doesn't mind giving your soul away to the company - DO NOT WORK AT NIELSEN. You will be utterly miserable."

What don't you like about working at Nielsen?

"Outsourcing to the max, so no job security at all, no matter how long you'd been with the company. Payraises eliminated a couple years before I quit. No work/life balance at all - 7 business days per week is what we were told, and most people had to work 7-day workweeks due to the unrealistic delivery dates promised to customers. No employee morale, and you would frequently get yelled at by some managers."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Try giving a rip about your employees instead of working them to death until you can find a way to replace them with cheaper labor or eliminate their position entirely. These people are HUMAN BEINGS. There are more important things than your bottom line, especially when you are already filthy rotten rich to begin with. How many yachts do you need"

"Horrible culture, no job security, low pay"

What do you like about working at Nielsen?

"Telecommuting allowed. I also worked with some great people, but I can say that about any company I've ever worked for. That's about all the positives I can think of."

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

"Unless you are desperate for a paycheck or want to give your soul to the company - Do NOT work here."

What don't you like about working at Nielsen?

"No job security whatsoever - neverending rounds of layoffs/outsourcing of work. Payraises had ceased at least a year or two before I quit (and I always got good reviews). No work/life balance at all - you were told there are 7 business days in a week. Most people had to work 7-day weeks to try to meet the ridiculous delivery dates. Employee morale = horrible. Some people were ASKING to be laid off so they could just get out and get their severance, if that tells you anything. You would get yelled at by some managers frequently for virtually no reason. I was delivering all of my work prior to the deadlines, yet was being told I wasn't doing my job. Say what"

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Try giving a rip about your employees. They are not emotionless robots that you can work to death until you can find a way to remove them from your payroll. They are human beings."

"No job security, stressful culture, the hours are bordeline slavery"

What do you like about working at Nielsen?

"They allowed telecommuting and flexible work schedule. I enjoyed most of my coworkers. Alot of great people."

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

"Unless you are a career person who loves working all the time or are desperate for a paycheck - DO NOT WORK HERE. You'll be utterly miserable."

What don't you like about working at Nielsen?

"Lack of job security. You WILL lose your job eventually. Lack of work/life balance. Management will tell you there are 7 business days in a week. Unrealstic deadlines, requiring 7-day work weeks. Payraises had ceased completely prior to my leaving the company."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Give a rip about your employees. They are not emotionless robots that you can work to death until you can find a way to eliminate them from your payroll. They are human beings."
