    Former Employee - Emerging Leaders Program: Operations and Technology in Schaumburg, IL
    Former Employee - Emerging Leaders Program: Operations and Technology in Schaumburg, IL

    I worked at The Nielsen Company

    Pros

    The Emerging Leaders Program I was of part did a superb job at educating us and prepping us for full-time positions. The compensation is extremely competitive and the vast number of locations as well as different business the company has acquired are truly incredible. This has also resulted in some downfalls that I believe are currently being addressed. The result has come in way of a lot of change, something that many people despise. Assuming that this change will all come to fruition I know that Nielsen will become a much stronger company and ultimately the industry leader.

    Cons

    Considering the amount of change that is taking place it should not be surprising that organization is my first complaint. They were very slow about giving details about my employment and some interns were about to sign an apartment lease in city that Nielsen latter told them they would not be working in. That being said I have seen the steps taken to get ahead of these logistical issues and believe that in the future the program will gain great strength. In addition to these changes they have actively asked current interns about anything that could be done to improve upon the program.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As is the situation in most companies that are not performing as well as some feel they should Nielsen's management is forced to make tough decisions. Often these decisions are so tough because prior managers failed to address them in a timely manner. I would suggest that Senior Management be upfront with their workforce about the future. Of course this gets tricky as well, you can't say things are going horrible as you'll likely lose top talent. The overall concepts that they're applying seem right, reassuring employees about the uncertainties associated with change would be my best piece of advice.
