I have been working at Nielsen full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Exposure to big FMCG manufacturers' business and networking opportunities for future employment. Good analatical training and developement.

Cons

Nielsen salaries are way too low for the calibre of recruits. This leads to high staff turnover since even junior employees can earn more at other companies. The salary doesnt compensate for the poor work/life balance. Promotions are also dependant on the accounts that the employee works on. If they are lucky enough to be be selected to work on a big/high spending client they will get promoted easier -despite not working as hard as other executives.
