I worked at The Nielsen Company full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

If you like research and analysis, this is a great company. Many long-time employees there, and still a bit of the "old" family feel.

Cons

Lots of constant change. Reorganizations to evolve the company while trying to keep status quo.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    i'm been at my director position for at least 5 years. Yeah I should maybe look harder or praise myself to my boss but the divisions are small in which creates restraints for mobility.

    Nielsen promotes and recognizes employees based on two factors, performance and popularity.

    Pros

    Freedom to do your job as best you can based on your abilities. Company car and expense account.

    Cons

    Company does not recognize performance over popularity. If you are part of the club, your job is pretty secure, if not start looking now.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay true to your employees. Do not listen to rumours as rumours are usually not true.
