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

    Pros

    - I met some great people. This applies to the majority. Heads up to these people. Aside from that, terrible. Some are a nasty piece of work though.

    Cons

    Everything - Low salary - Incompetent, aggressive, untrained, bullying managers (not all of them though). - LOTS of politics - managerial discussions are ALWAYS held behind closed doors, making employees very uneasy. - No training at all. - Unrealistic expectations. One is expected to complete five projects from day one on the job. - No work life balance - 12 hour days are expected and are the norm. - Dysfunctional facilities and IT support. - Overqualified people are hired to do meaningless tasks.

    Advice to Management

    - Respect work life balance. - Provide appropriate training. - Respect the individual. - Stop constantly slandering and threatening employees. - Do your employees a favour and hire people with the right qualifications for the job. Nielsen is so desperate for employees that people in disciplines (such as physics or economics) are hired. If you pass the "analytics" test, you are pretty much hired. To prospective employees, please, stay away. I wasted a chunk of my life and learnt nothing.
