Nielsen Business Media/Expositions great place - as opposed to the Mothership Nielsen Co.

I worked at Nielsen Business Media full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Good leadership that is focused on making money while doing right by its clients and audience - CEO is David Loechner (VG), not Greg Farrar (eh)

Cons

Nielsen Business Media was a thorn in the Nielsen (aka "The Mothership") Company's side. The leadership at Nielsen Co was/is clueless - a horrible and unethical org. Unfortunately their policies got in the way of the expo/b2b business. Fortunately, Nielsen has sold its expo division, so it should mean a (far) better environment for NBM.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Run as much interference between your employees and the Mothership.

    Great company to start at but not many opportunities to grow and diversify your career.

    I have been working at Nielsen Business Media full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Nielsen is a very young company and that leads to the office culture being very relaxed and fun. There is a great training program when you start so you don't need to come in being a data or excel expert.

    Cons

    There is a lot of attrition which leads to a frustrating work experience when you are constantly moving teams and managers and also having to pick up more work than a normal workload can handle. Many employees work very long hours and moral gets compensated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create incentives to keep talent in house.

    I worked at Nielsen Business Media full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    It was good to work with different departments in a larger company

    Cons

    At the time I worked there, the upper management was trying to figure out what to do with the department and magazines and I was caught up in the whole power struggle.
