Pros

Nielsen has a philosophy of " You take of Nielsen and Nielsen will take care of you!" The freedom to travel and/or relocate with company is endless. Almost everyone I've known has been happy with their position; culturaly diverse and opportunity to advance is HUGE!

Cons

Though work/family life are respected and balanced, it's best to be free of commitments such as spouse or young children. You may be asked to help work a territory for a month or three that's out of state. If you're not free to travel, it can DEFINITELY hinder your ability to appear "mobile" or advanceable....

Advice to Management

Advice to Management: Hang on to employees that are in it for the long-haul--don't always look for the young, unattached, fresh-out-of college employee--there's alot of dedicated Nielsen employees that LOVE what they do and are there for life...

    Pros

    The work is interesting, especially since the company is moving into the digital and mobile realms. There are definitely opportunities to take on additional work and responsibilities if you want it. Relaxed work environment and good people at the company.

    Cons

    Pay is definitely below-average in the market. This leads to high turnover, which leads to substantial workload passed onto remaining employees. There is not much knowledge sharing between verticals within the company, and definitely not much integration with the larger Nielsen company.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize the efforts of your employees by rewarding them with raises and promotions. This will cut down employee turnover and reduce the loss of talent. Come up with a very clear plan and timetable for integration with all of Nielsen and communicate it to employees.

    Pros

    On the positive side, Nielsen Online had a diverse roster of clients ranging across industries, good opportunites for job growth and advancement (within Nielsen Online and other Nielsen companies), solid training program and competitive salary.

    Cons

    On the negative side, Nielsen Online had a high turnover of staff, colleagues tended to be pretty young and inexperienced leading to an imbalance of work on management.

    Advice to Management

    The leadership at Nielsen Online was strong, albeit a bit far removed. I felt as thought the leadership was attentive (when needed).
