    I have been working at The Nielsen Company full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Easy-going atmosphere 30% of the time. The other 70% does require hard work. If you don't want to work, you should find a way to retire early. It's a part of life. The job is interesting though the clients can be challenging. It is intellectually stimulating in that it causes you to think.

    Cons

    There are times when work/life balance are pretty bad. Major projects have timelines are oftentimes end-loaded. There is a lot of work to do, but not all the time. There is some discontent among younger analysts that upper management is cold and heartless; I have yet to witness this myself.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show you care for your workforce more often. Consider increasing salaries -- though this is not a proper way to motivate hard work, it is a way to retain top talent.

    I have been working at The Nielsen Company full-time for 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.
