Program Manager Interview
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Nielsen.
Initial screen involved a conversation with HR. This was followed by a series of interviews (8) strung out over months. One of the interviewers was clearly not trained how to interview, otherwise everyone was professional. After the 7th interview I was told that I would be made an offer. The 8th 'interview' was to tell me that the position had been killed for the quarter due to budgetary decisions and that the would contact me the following FY. Have had interim follow up to that effect. Process really left me at a loss, although the hiring manager seems like a solid manager.

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Nielsen.
Was quickly called up after being refereed by a friend. But once the ball got rolling, the actual interviews seemed to drag on. The entire process took a number of interviews (at times re-interviews) via phone, Skype and in person spread over 3 months. As the original position applying for was not offered, but a new one was quickly identified. It was nice for the team to keep looking for other opportunities. But by the time an offer was made, I was well into a new engaging project at current employer and a significant bonus cycle that Nielsen was not able to match.
- I had my 1:1 and the individual was visibly busy with other items. The interview had no surprises, or difficult questions. But in general the questions were around performing in a matrix organization. Answer Question
Reasons for Declining
Delay in process of interview, lower compensation than current employer, mainly driven to internal promotion and bonus received during the delayed interview process.

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Nielsen (Chicago, IL) in May 2012.
I was presented with an issue the group was currently facing and asked for ideas to resolve, what groups I would include and why I would include a given group. Identify areas that I would have an option, why there would be an option and why I chose the path I did. After walking through this we discussed the company, their role in the community and the importance of the work globally. We discussed where I would like to be in 5-10yrs and how I see myself achieving that opportunity.

I did negotiate and they were willing to negotiate on a couple point (vacation/pay)
