Advice to ManagementAdvice

You need to start thinking ahead before you are buying all these small companies. What's the point of getting a group of talented people, but then you don't want to grow the business, just let it die out. You are losing customers day by day. Stop thinking that you are the only one out there...stay competitive. More importantly, listen to your employees for feedback. Don't make promises if you can't keep them.

    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.
