Lack of corporate execution

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

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

ProsGreat corporate vision
Interesting colleagues
Exposure to market data, leading to different career opportunities

ConsIn ability to exeuce the corporate vision
Lack of internal cooperation to acheive corporate goals
Poor leaders in middle management (tend to promote strong analysts)

Advice to Senior ManagementThe right moves at the top are taking place. There is a hold up in middle manage that is creating downstream problems. Find it and fix it. Then Nielsen moves from good to great.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Extremely political

Project Manager (Former Employee)
Taipei (Taiwan)

I worked at The Nielsen Company full-time for more than a year


Pros: Good training and most people are friendly. Cons: Very political. It's like high-school where you have to take sides or you'd have your backstabbed. Snr Management have their favourites, it's like "teacher's pet"… Advice to Senior Management: Understand why there's a high turnover rate across the board. No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More

 

Learning experience

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
