Many have asked about severance benefits. It’s pretty straightforward and simple. With the exception to 401k whatever you had set up on your last day of employment is what you’ll have through the end of your deference. My personal situation. I had... — read more
How long will we have medical insurance for after layoffs? Seems like deference is two months
The next time they have a town hall— Someone should ask why the company is giving millions of dollars to that thug Habib as a consultant. He and other former Nielsen executives are calling the shots on these layoffs if you can believe it. I didn’t... — read more
I work in an analyst type role and just came out of a meeting with our VP. About 50 or so souls on the call. Someone brave enough to ask her if there were going to be anymore layoffs? Her response sent chat windows and text alerts into overdrive. ... — read more
I know I do!
TCS Support Is Eliminated and Devs Now Have To being 24x7 on call. If Dev doesn't Respond displine will occur.
Check your email! Submit your feedback cloaked with professionalism. There’s strength in numbers!!
Did we ever get a proper answer to any of the questions that are of interest to us as employees? I'd honestly like to know if there was ever a time when these things were useful because as things stand now, they're nothing but a complete waste of... — read more
Posting for those that were in the U.S. and laid off on 1/11/23. If you are in the U.S. and was laid off another day I’m not saying it doesn’t apply to you but I’m specifically speaking to those that laid off on this day. More than likely your last... — read more
More pressure is already being felt by those who are not impacted. Are you noticing that too? I am preparing for the manager to start adding more to my plate, although realistically I don't see how people can agree to be even more busy and... — read more
Soo, we’re starting the meeting off with the foot on the GAS LIGHTING pedal!!! Mass layoffs have taken place and NOT one mention or additional insight provided!
I was laid off in the latest round. I'm still in shock, after spending most of my career at Nielsen. If you were let go from here or any other company, how did you manage to keep yourself focused on your job search and not completely fall apart? I... — read more
I am worried about how long my search for a new job will take. It seems to me that I will have to accept a worse offer than what I had here. Do you think the situation on the job market will get even worse in the future or will it start to improve?... — read more
It has just been announced that 14 employees will lose their job in a collective redundancy plan in Belgium. Thanks to a strict employment policy, there is a 30 days mandatory time period between the announcement and the actual layoffs. The... — read more
Many departments in the U.S. were hit hard with the first round of layoffs; some were were gone within an hour of communication, some were given extended last day. Adding to the layoff issues is the reorganization of Nielsen; associates are being... — read more
At the moment, I am most occupied with looking for a new job while I still have a job and a source of income. In my opinion, it can only get worse here. However, I have less and less hope that I will be able to get a new opportunity before I find... — read more
Will there be any updating? Hope many survivors fill out that Question form for the meeting.
Elliot is known for slicing and dicing companies they acquired. There's no way the layoff is over. The later you get laid off, the worse the severance package. It's better to get laid off in the very first wave, when the company is still generous... — read more
The Hollywood Office is closing on January 31st, 2023. I guess they needed a cash bump to cover David Kenny's salary increase after going private, am I right, or am I right, or am I right? Too bad for me and you! If I was an elite (not some... — read more
It was confirmed recently that TAM was hit pretty hard. Any updates?
Of all the departments that are affected, I wonder which is the most and which is the least affected.
If the management intends to additionally overload those who are not laid off, I think it is a very bad plan. But it looks like that's exactly what they're up to?
So those of us in the Chicago office just got an internal memo saying that the office is being shut permanently and we are to be on remote work. Based on a September 2020 article, this office has 600 employees. For Illinois, the WARN act will be... — read more
From what I can see it seems that mostly older folks were let go from Nielsen in this round of layoffs. Comment if you were let go an younger than 45. Seems older people were targeted.
I am newly joint employee before few months. May I know if there are any news regarding layoffs in UK? 2 people got fired from our US team. Still there are no news about UK. Please if anyone can throw light on it.
Former Nielsen of 18 years. Left a few years ago. Survived the brutal 2006 PE takeover and eventual mass layoffs along with outsourcing to India. I was a NYC client side sales rep. I guess if you directly make the company money, you're less... — read more
Was told today now that next level has been announced, they will move down to smaller dept restructuring and review. This has to be completed by early March. Next round of layoffs will occur at Director level and down in April 2023.
Now that other parts of the world are done (or at least I think they are), when will cuts continue here? I think we all know we're far from over so more layoffs are inevitable. The only question remains when can we expect them to happen? Within the... — read more
At Nielsen and in corporate in general, being mediocre is enough and no one is asking more from you anyway. Never do you best, just pretend you do, be smarter, use them and they use you.
As an ex Nielsen employee these threads do not surprise me at all, Nielsen are known for treating people like numbers but working them to death for sh-t pay at the same time. I would think you’d be naive to think it won’t occur. You may start... — read more
I'm not minimizing what people are going through but Nielsen is now a dead-end career-wise. Being laid-off is scary but after the first shock is gone, things can only improve. Not to mention, the job market is still not as bad as some think, so being... — read more
That is a question to which I have no answer. It is incomprehensible that any company decides to keep the biggest slackers at the expense of excellent employees, as is the case here.
I am a product manager from IL office. Just got fired. Anyone else from IL, let us know here, to have the full picture.
I wonder if it was Nielsen's intention to keep us constantly in fear of losing our jobs in order to get maximum productivity out of us, because if so, I don't think that will happen. I have absolutely no motivation to give my best because I am... — read more
Please post here anything you heard about layoffs in Europe.
Please add here anything you heard about layoffs in APAC.
I’m a long term union member In the UK. Can I insist on having my union rep present for any meetings with managers and HR?
I wonder who decides who stays and who leaves... Do the managers receive a list of names or do the managers do the list? Seniors and people with the higher salaries are always the first to go? I work in ops in Belgium, I have a very small salary... — read more
The fact that right after layoffs are done I can't stop worrying about more coming maybe as soon as later this month is not normal. It's the weekend and all I'm doing is looking for more info on what's to come instead of relaxing with a game or a... — read more
