    Pros

    Arbitron employees received a presentation about the opportunities to grow and the team-work culture at Nielsen. Many of us never saw that (see cons)

    Cons

    I had worked for Arbitron Inc for 15 years, Shortly after the merger with Nielsen a large part of the Arbitron workforce was notified that they would be part of a reduction-in-force. Our group was part of the RIF. I was never interviewed regarding the applications that I had developed for the company. As far as I know, the presentation by my manager to the new administration was marginalized. Everything seemed pre-ordained without regard for truly learning the intellectual content that they were buying.

    Advice to Management

    When you want to transition people and processes, make sure you talk to all the right people, explore all the variables and risks, and then keep them in the job until the transition is complete. Arrogance is not a virtue. Timelines mean nothing if you meet them and then have to rework everything to make it right.

    Pros

    There is so much opportunity to learn and grow at Nielsen. Many view company as a great place to start a career, but I feel it is also a great destination company where you can have a long, fulfilling career. Top performers will be asked to rotate into new positions which helps with one's career growth and satisfaction. The flexibility to work from home is a major benefit.

    Cons

    Could be an overwhelming environment to navigate for some. Company is currently revamping training program so perhaps the on-boarding process will be enhanced in the future.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up with current communication model - frequent updates on progress and initiatives via webinars.
