Thread regarding Nielsen layoffs

Poland Super Hub

The plan for a Super Hub in Poland - to cut costs

Its up and running - some good people

I have just been doing training and was asked ;

1) What does FMCG stand for?

2) What is an ASCII file?

To be honest our service will suffer if we employee low-cost employees - an average of £19K v £28K comparing the UK to Poland - not worth it if we lose a big contract

Already complaints from Sainsbury around this topic - I am a client manager and just annoyed that the company thinks this is a good strategy - quality counts not cost in these deals

Personally, if anyone at Nielsen does not know what FMCG stands for it very worrying.

ASCII file not relevant to me - just technical file and characters that were defined long before I was born.

So far the Polish team have been very good but time will tell - High turnover will be an issue maybe ??

Sadly YES we do need to know what an ASCII file is :)

It is attitudes like this which mean we have no depth in knowledge when we have errors and non-ASCII characters appearing in our files which are then taken by clients and breaking their imports.

And it is why Poland Super Hub will fail - lack of care for the client

What is an ASCII File. Has anyone needed to know that since 1987?
