    Current Employee - Analyst in New York, NY

    I have been working at Nielsen full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Paycheck is deposited on time

    Cons

    Terrible cut throat environment and many coworkers jobs are getting outsourced over seas. This company is part of the big problem in the US, outsource jobs to get the P&L looking better no matter what damage it does to families or the economy. Pitiful company that should go the way of all greedy self serving companies, away for the good of all.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a place with integrity to work.

    The work and resources are interesting, but the tools fail frequently and the environment/morale are poor.

    Current Employee - Senior Research Analyst in New York, NY

    I have been working at Nielsen full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Great people, interesting work topics, good networking opportunities, great work-life balance, opportunities to move to other groups, fascinating research possibilities.

    Cons

    Compensation is extremely low for the industry, morale is generally poor and much of the young talent quickly loses enthusiasm due to mediocre treatment, positive written and verbal feedback rarely turn into positive financial/merit returns, environment is very quiet/anti-social.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make more efforts to recognize leadership potential in younger employees (especially as research shifts to a more digital focus). Invest heavily in opportunities to expand/specialize in web analytics and digital marketing.
