I worked at The Nielsen Company as an intern for less than a year

Pros

They give you responsibility from the get go, which is really great if you're starting out as an intern, they dont wait for you to jump right in.

Cons

Hours are long, this is definitely not a 9 to 5 job

    I have been working at The Nielsen Company full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Big company mentality, international and diverse environment, company active in many products and services, well known brand name, competitors like IRI want to hire you

    Cons

    Stuck to the Nielsen way, not open to new approaches, not friendly to experienced people and from different backgrounds. HELLISH accreditation process in client service, stressful and meaningless, many drop out when they realize they are doomed if they don't pass it. Clique attitude, high personnel turnover, full of frustration

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You are complicating the situation, so question your current approaches, attitudes and styles. The answer can be only one: With the current set up you're looking in high personnel turnover and not attracting talent
