I have been working at The Nielsen Company full-time (more than an year)

Pros

- Very large company; provides employees with many options and varying career paths
- Opportunities for those who are technically gifted and those who want to focus more on consultatitve skills

Cons

- Pay is slightly lower than competitors, but having the name on your resume may be worth it

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Spend more time getting a pulse of general office morale. Since upper level employees are rarely in the office, there is a clear disconnect between the analysts and leaders in the company.

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

    Pros

    The work is interesting and challenging. The people are known for being nice. If you are competent, there is opportunity to advance. However, people who want to be told what to do typically are managed out. I think this is a plus for the company. Associates must continually prove they are worth keeping. Seniority does not equal job security. Company supports work from home options.

    Cons

    Promotions are arbitrarily delayed and raises and bonuses are small. While this is a form of cost leadership it means strong young employees leave for competitive firms. Other benefits are lacking as well. Employees earn a third week of vacation after 3 years of employment. Other firms offer 5 from the start.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make the rewards more meaningful to increase the retention of top talent. Offer family friendly programs like daycare. Consider increasing benefits like vacation time to attract and keep talent.
