Nielsen N.V. Message Board

    wouldnt touch it

    Ive been investing for years as well as worked at Nielsen. The management team replaced thousands of U.S. workers with the largest offshoring contract ever. Some of it was good business, but they went way too far and actually hurt Nielsen's ability to innovate, as well as improve processes. So now there are many systems that are old and are being held together by offshore teams that are inexperienced, unfamiliar with the technology, and clueless about the business. its a disaster. I kept having to spend sleepness nights repairing their mistakes just to keep the ship afloat. Finally gave up and took another job elsewhere, the working conditions had become horrific under Mitchell Habib.

    Nielsen improved the financials, but did so by cutting out its heart. Its literally held together by bandaids now, and the PE guys are going to cash out while Nielsen is going to face competition from much more nimble players in the next few years.

    The PE guys ruined the company but have been dog and ponying this house of cards to unsuspecting investors. Save your money, there are better companies out there.
