The only thing I liked about working at Nielsen is its regular salary arrival and the high number of leaves available

Dislikes

Being in the field data collection operation, the infrastructure was terrible. Starting with the next immediate higher authority, they were most uncooperative to a newcomer. Their expectation was employee would know everything about their job role. But the biggest of all complaint would be the onus placed on a DA Executive to hire freelancers for data collections without any help from HR or higher authority.
And finally, even after serving notice, the reliving later didn't arrive on the last working day. After prompting multiple times, it arrived 5 months later (when I had already left the company)

Work

Boring and terrible expectations at the same time

This a company who allows employees who have year backs and back locks in academics. This is very suitable for female employees who are married or yet marry or who don't want to work in evening shifts as well as night.

Dislikes

Constantly threatening the employees moral. Quality of the work is not appreciated according to the monthly bases. The appreciation is given based on mother tongue. Corporate values are not followed. Appraisals are given based on the friends circle and as well as on religion too. Leaves are not given even leaves balance is there. The thing if you are marrying you should ask the manager should marry on particular date. There is no skill development or add on course provided by the company. The training programs are strictly forbidden.

It's completely different from other company projects,those who are suffering for basic needs they can come and survive easily,no pressure for analyst, 7 hours login, if you are talented really you can grow easily to next level, people who have good knowledge in Ms office they can grow easily to the next level.

Dislikes

Only dislike is salary/appraisal , hope so that is going to be change very soon,by 2018 atleast expectations will be fulfill for all employee there.

Work

Assigning games to analyst, clearing doubts, validation to be done, hourly update performance to be taken, team huddle to be taken,mailing to the team manager regarding weekly performance of the project,interacting with clients to clear doubt if necessary

The team / manager encourages you to learn new skills (via on-the-job or classroom training) and responsibilities. The work environment is very conducive to taking up new roles and enhancing one's knowledge base. There are many opportunities available to move around in the organization.

There is a high degree of job security and the monetary compensation is decent. The top leadership communicates with the organization regularly to give the employees a sense of direction the company has taken / is planning to take in forthcoming years

Dislikes

As in a service industry, the work life balance is slightly tilted towards work, esp. for the youngsters.

They have developed culture in such eay that there is always difference between team mates and back stabbing each other.Career growth only for chamchas not for talented potential workers. Salary package is poor. Work environment is worst. Employees are harrassed and ill treated. Innovation is very good. Work life balance is very bad.Here people do not have time for personal life. Absolutely there is no job security.

Dislikes

Dislike work culture, no recognition of good work. Lack of professionalism in top field management.

Work

Work is hectic and boring.

Great work-life balance with a huge number of leaves for you to enjoy and relax.
Very peaceful environment except one of the Region Manager who thinks himself a god and doesn't possess any people management Skill.

Dislikes

Dynamic work culture is completely missing (Only in Sports Analytics centers), Management style of work is missing and sometimes senior managers do micromanagement. Poor Cafeteria, No Perks, Scope for learning and development is very less.

Work

I like the environment of work but sometimes boring Job because you have very little to do.

It has a great working environment, especially if you are working with the US offices. If you're working with BASES then everything is pretty much structured.

Dislikes

Appraisals and growth can be slower than your expectations. At times, employees are not properly rewarded for their extra efforts. Team outings were rare.

Work

I am mostly involved with innovations so that's pretty interesting in itself. You get a very distinct perspective of the client's strategy and also get to learn a lot about various markets and segments.

A very open, integrated workplace, good work life balance with adequate leaves, approachable collleagues, comortable work environment. Flexible work hours, no specific in-out time

Dislikes

Lower salary packages compared to other companies, pretty long time between appraisal and realisation of increment.
Learning curve can get saturated working in the same domain, if you work more than 12-14 months in a sector on a specific track study
