I have been working at Nielsen full-time

Pros

- Leader globally in the industry
- Learn a lot and work with top global organizations
- Great place to start career and advance quickly
- Nice mix of client consulting challenges, yet ability to have work/life balance

Cons

- Non-client facing roles could use talent upgrade. Their incentives often not linked to success of company and clients, with little accountability to those who service clients.
- Too many middle & senior managers have limited knowledge about the details of their respective businesses, which sometimes lead to bad decisions.

    I have been working at Nielsen full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    At Nielsen there is opportunity for career movement, relaxed office culture, good locations and travel opportunities, interesting industry and field

    Cons

    Like with other companies, lots of politics, turnover rate seems high and there are only a handful of subject matter experts in any given area, everyone is stretched too thin over too many projects

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    help employees prioritize, do not spend excessively when the company is experiencing cuts

    Former Employee - Bilingual Ad Writer in Oldsmar, FL

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

    Pros

    Cafeteria has a nice variety of food and great theme lunches. Plenty of parking.

    Cons

    Performance reviews are very subjective and unfair. Not everyone writes the same and upper management is quick to let go of employees without giving them a chance to improve. Large work area, very noisy with no privacy at all. I felt like I was working in a room with phone operators for the U.N. Administrative staff talks down to people and are complacent when it comes to handling issues that affect you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Never assume your staff is properly trained. Change your methodology of determining whether or not an employee is meeting your satisfactory requirements. Respect mature employees, just because the majority of the staff is comprised of young people don't overlook the treasure you have with those who have more experience. Also try to communicate with your team face to face instead of just using email or instant messaging.
