    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Cincinnati, OH (US)
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Cincinnati, OH (US)

    I worked at The Nielsen Company full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Outstanding training and continuing education, experience with high-profile clients, corporate responsibility and diversity initiatives. It was great for a first job right out of college, I built an extensive network and got fantastic experience for my resume once I was ready to move on.

    Cons

    Compensation and recognition are inconsistent with the annual review process. You can consistently get excellent reviews but with the promotion and advancement structure, salary and bonuses don't keep up with reviews or the overall job market. Inconsistency in hiring practices and job titles, with favoritism blatantly obvious.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer salaries that keep up with the market, and stop forcing a certain percentage of your high-performing employees into an "under-performing" category during annual reviews.
