I have been working at Nielsen full-time (Less than a year)RecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEORecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEO
The people are incredibly smart, driven, and its an energetic environment. The career growth and opportunities are endless in this Meritocracy environment. The organization places a strong emphasis on its values for its employees and for its clients. Due to it being a global company, opportunity to work from home is very common for many roles. Nielsen is a very cross functional environment and you have the opportunity to interact with a lot of different functions within the business.
Some positions require a significant amount of travel which can at times impact work/life balance but it is a flexible environment.
Advice to Management
The upper management that I have interacted with are very intelligent individuals and generally care about their employees and the culture of the organization.

I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeks – interviewed at Nielsen.
I spoke to a campus recruiter at a job fair and gave her my resume. Later that day, I received an email to complete an assessment and schedule a phone interview, which happened about a week later. The assessment included a bunch of brain teasers and the phone interview was mostly basic "tell me about a time when you..." sort of questions. I was then emailed a few days later to schedule two face to face interviews on campus, which asked similar questions in addition to mini case type questions.
