    I have been working at The Nielsen Company full-time

    Pros

    - Global leader in the industry
    - Career clear path with lots of potential for relatively quick advancement
    - Exposure to lots of different companies and thought leadership
    - Generally culture of smart and nice people

    Cons

    - Some senior management not inspiring and out of touch (particular in HR and Finance)
    - Operations departments have some good people but generally not world class
    - If you are not performing (i.e. bottom 10%) you will not be around for long

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve your communication and connecting with employees across the business. There are a lot of exciting things going on that we could better publicize and empower local leadership with. Clean up HR department. Shocking lack of accountability, attention to detail, and reactive culture within this function. Talent level could generally be better and HR involvement tends to make situations worse.

    Current Employee - Senior Executive in Sharjah (United Arab Emirates)

    I have been working at The Nielsen Company full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Satisfactory salary, multicultural experience, multinational clientele, good work/life balance, relatively well-developed processes, motivation to take initiatives to improve company processes, flexible in working from home if needed

    Cons

    lack of acknowledgement of value adding work, lack of clarity on company vision and long term objectives, in some cases lack of understanding between upper and middle management resulting in confused junior level personnel,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please try to highlight and reward individuals which deserve it. Who receive very good reviews from their clients and help in keeping business stable and growing. Also need to be more clear about what company is moving towards, like new business approach etc it should come across strongly till lowest tiers.
