I worked at Nielsen full-time (more than a year)

Pros

Everyone there was extremely friendly and courteous. We had access to tons of market research data from various other departments and endless learning tools, both online and classroom types. Most managers were great and easy to work with, plus the "Nielsen" name carries tremendous weight in the market research world and is an exceptional resume builder.

Cons

Time to time, the hours you've to put in were rough, and were not justified by the salary. Also, Nielsen paid next to nothing to help with further education (eg. mba). Finally, a lot of entry level & junior associates were asked to share desks (though large), but we literally got no privacy.

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

    Pros

    The people are amazing. They are so smart, really fun, and great to be around.
    The work is really interesting, never dull, really challenging, but in a wonderful way.
    Very flexible in working from home.
    Lots of opportunities... IF you get lucky with your management.

    Cons

    Terrible work life balance... Long hours and no recognition.
    Sometimes feels like you get punished for being good at your job (ie. get more work, have to help other people), while people who are struggling get it really easy (ie. shorter hours, lighter workload).
    I want to love my job, and I think I could, but every day I see tremendously intelligent people getting screwed over in terms of management, raises, bonuses, recognition, workload... etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Morale is very low. You have some of the smartest people around, try and make them happy. They really don't want to go, you're kind of just giving them no other choice.
