Generally a good company, but not in touch with people who don't work in Chicago

I have been working at The Nielsen Company full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Pay is reasonably good, and benefits are ok, unless you live in an area where United Healthcare isn't a big insurer. Generally a well respected company, which is nice. "Meritocracy' is good in theory...

Cons

The execution of meritocracy is so dependent on your manager that it isn't really a meritocracy. It all comes down to how "connected" you are with others (above you, that is). There is a constant push to "do more," but some times, you just can't do as much as management wants you to. They are slow to fill vacancies to save some money while the current employees pick up the slack of empty positions.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Work with off-site employees more. Find an alternative healthcare program for people in areas not well served by United Healthcare.

    Pros

    Vast FMCG exposure. Generally good people.

    Cons

    Um, typical big company limitations - little reward for the ability to perform with client, outside of defined role responsibilities.

    Pros

    If you love working in expositions and enjoy sales and the end result of events and digital media then Nielsen is good. Nielsen offers great shows. Good pay and comm.

    Cons

    Upper level leadership is poor and doesnt recognize individual talent but talent based on the overall sucess of an individual property. They outsource everything to India so it's hard to get real issues fixed. They limit professional growth. They dont invest into buying expositions and they dont invest into existing properties. It is what it is, sink or swim.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring jobs back to the U.S. Invest into buying other shows, create a path for individual achievement and growth, recognize true talent and most of all value your employees and support a faternity atmosphere of belonging.
