Pros

- NYC - Friendly, open culture - Extracurricular activities (clubs, sports, etc) - Fast-moving media industry - Cafe - HQ is in the East Village - Wide variety of career routes

Cons

- Commute is long from outside the City - Off-site workers means there is some miscommunication or duplication of work - Clients can be difficult

Advice to Management

Take time out of your day to talk to the lower-level associates to help boost morale and to make them feel more like a part of the team. Sometimes an employees worth is hard to find at those low levels.

    Pros

    Flexible Schedule. As a part-time employee I am supposed to work 25 hours per week. Sometimes it is less and sometimes it is more. In order to keep job you must meet sales quotas. No exceptions. Natural disaster. Too bad. Surgery. Too bad. Quotas must be met or you will be let go. No exceptions. But, again, making your own schedule is a big plus!

    Cons

    Too much work for the hours allowed. I have to work a lot off the clock to get the work done and keep my job. Everyone does it so it is "normal".

    Advice to Management

    Make training materials more clear and complete. Understand the time required to complete tasks and allow that time to employees. Have understanding when natural disaster strikes and there is no power, internet or road access or when an employee has surgery.

    Pros

    Connections with key decision makers at the largest CPG companies in the world. Opportunities to work across the many service areas of The Nielsen Company. The opportunity to bring multiple research capabilities and services to the client with One Voice.

    Cons

    With its syndicated mentality, Nielsen senior management struggled to understand why revenues from a custom based service did not increase on an annual basis at the same level as syndicated services. Our custom group was shuffled multiple times within the company until it recently found a home within the Shopper/Consumer Insights area.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate the fact that, in those years in which the company passes along increased costs to clients for providing data from the world's largest retail account, client's revenue budgets vis-a-vis spending on custom research services will be significantly reduced.
