Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
New York, NY

I have been working at The Nielsen Company full-time for more than 5 years

ProsExtensive resources available, operates in many countries, many career opportunities if you have a good manager. Also, this is a very exciting category to work in.

ConsConfusing organizational structure, poor communication between divisions, management is very top heavy. Also, depending on your manager, your career development may be limited despite the company's extensive resources.

Advice to Senior ManagementStop promoting managers that do not know how to develop their employees.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
