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

Pros

Great corporate vision
Interesting colleagues
Exposure to market data, leading to different career opportunities

Cons

In ability to exeuce the corporate vision
Lack of internal cooperation to acheive corporate goals
Poor leaders in middle management (tend to promote strong analysts)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The right moves at the top are taking place. There is a hold up in middle manage that is creating downstream problems. Find it and fix it. Then Nielsen moves from good to great.

    Pros

    Everyone knows of Nielsen, so working for The Nielsen Company is great to include on a resume.

    Also, in such a large and diverse company there are a lot of opportunities to grow a career here, especially if you are able and willing to move for opportunities.

    Cons

    The benefits here are pretty bad. Medical insurance is bare bones and the vacation time is as lean as they can legally get away with... on the upside, a lot of positions allow the opportunity to work from home, especially after you have been here a while.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want to attract and retain the top talant you must compensate them with similar packages to other top employers. I know many people who have left Nielsen because the pay/benefits were better and they are highly employable.
