Good place to break into the CPG industry then move to a manufacturer/retailer.

I worked at The Nielsen Company

Pros

1) Good place to break into the industry
2) Working for Nielsen will open many opportunities as many major CPG manufacturers/retailers use Nielsen data.
3)Very collaborative environment

Cons

1) Nielsen is developing an "up or out" mentality
2) Internal processes/procedures can be rather cumbersome
3) Client facing roles are becoming generalist roles inhibiting the development of associates.
4) Low salaries compared to manufacturers.

    Pros

    I enjoy the challenges associated with my daily job, it's enough to keep me satisfied and engaged but I never feel too stressed as management is pretty good about balancing workloads and taking into account the work-life balance.

    Cons

    The office can be a bit boring at times. There isn't a lot of interactions among the different teams and it can be a pretty quiet place a lot of the times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The office could use some help with getting employees more engaged with each other, and I think cross training between the different teams could be emphasized more.
