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

Pros

Great exposure to top level CPG firm, especially right out of college. Gives you a good foundation of excel and how to analysis data. Also, helps you develop client facing skills and how to maintain expectations. Lucked out with a really good leader and the opportunity to work in our international group, meaning colleagures across the world.

Cons

Not much room for creativity and innovation, just execute. Compensate on tenure over talent. Very little exposure to top level management. Lately, I hear they are putting restrictions on travel which hinders relationships with clients.

    Pros

    Eventually those private equity firms will put it all on the market and things can only get better.

    Cons

    No value for employees. Long hours, tons of outsourcing, constant change in direction and management. No job security. They do not follow their own "code of conduct." Outdated technology.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you are going to clean house, start at the top then go to the middle.
