No place is perfect. as a plain job this is a good place to work, but you'll be on your phone a lot. If that's something you're okay with this will work for you, if you need to separate work and home you could have some trouble.

I had worked at The Nielsen Company for 10+ years and I would only recommend them if you are looking for lots of pressure, work and long hours with minimal support and low pay.

The office environment is relaxed for the most part which is nice. Most of the people are friendly as well so you quickly get to know your coworkers. Management is always changing and everyone has a different style that you constantly need to get used to. With one manager you could be the bees knees and the next will be threatening you with performance management. It's not seamless.


There is a workplace culture of bullying and discrimination in certain teams and in my case at least, also blatant lying by senior managers regarding complaints against you, pay rises and promotions. You can be promised anything to keep you working for it. Going up the chain of command about these kinds of unethical practices is unlikely to afford you any meaningful outcome. If you need your job, you're better off keeping your mouth shut.
Pros
Flexible working arrangements depending on the role
Cons
Low pay, no career progression, bullying is not taken seriously

Usually people can get work 9 : 00 am that's really good, because people is free about your work. In addition people is happy in there.

That is why the company give the opportunity you put your opinion for improving the duties.


In general the company is well. Unfortunately I couldn't keep working with them but if in the future I have the opportunity again, I could be work with Nielsen.


Thanks.
Pros
free lunchs

Overall Nielsen is a good company to work with. Company culture is really good.

If you are looking for work life balance then it depends under which team/manager you are working with. It is not always flexible.


You will get to learn a lot from Nielsen.

The Nielsen Company is always open to change & cost reductions, I was there for 12 years I supported various departments, Media Research, Consumer Research and Global Operations. Some of my teams were 30+ members. The hardest part was working extremely long hours, the most rewarding part was in doing the long hours you were rewarded.

My jobs were always interesting and varied. I particularly enjoyed the travel to various destinations, interviewing managers and business owners which meant I had the privilege of meeting people from all walks of life and even made lasting friendships with some.

The plus of my other work (for the same company) was that I was in air conditioning, and in different shopping centres.


Our supervisor was a man that earned our respect by the way he treated and spoke to us. He was always willing to help, he always listened and pitched in when needed.


Being on the road most of the time, I didn't get to catch up with my co-workers except at our Christmas party, as we all lived in different areas.


Although being stuck in traffic isn't the most pleasant of experiences, I had the opportunity to listen to my collection of music to make the time go by.

Those that I got to meet and who stayed the distance were great.

Reconciling my completion of data with the expectations of management.

Meeting people and getting paid to exercise.

Nilsen (WA) is a workshop based company, which teaches the basics of switchboard manufacture.
Career ladder movement is minimal, and basically non-existant.

Workshop rules and regulations are strict and made up 'on the spot'.
