    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in New York, NY

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

    Pros

    Global company with opportunity for young people who are willing to move around and don't mind being paid little.
    Work-life balance is a possibility since working remotely (from home) is encouraged.

    Cons

    Going from a manufacturing environment (GE) to a market research company, all those principles do not transfer so well. We're not making jet engines at Nielsen.
    Pay is below market, especially in markets like New York and California.
    Nepotism is rampant and morale is generally very low.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's not all about process. You have to put time and resources toward real innovation. Find a way to promote and develop people that are beyond early career but haven't been at the company or 25 years.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
