    I worked at The Nielsen Company full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Nielsen is still perceived as the gold standard in the media research space and can be a big draw on your resume.

    Cons

    I worked at Nielsen through their transition back to being a public company, and the company was driven by a short-term obsession over cutting costs that lead to decisions that made no sense - like using an English-language site to recruit panelists in Japan to save a few bucks. Over time this made the work environment unbearable as people were pressured to meet unrealistic goals. Out of my team of 12 people there are currently 2 still working at Nielsen.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't just reward yes-men and think long and hard about how impossible "savings" are being achieved. I saw many instances where senior leadership pressed very hard for outsourcing relationships that didn't even save any money despite causing layoffs, leading many of us to conclude they were getting payoffs under the table.
