    Current Employee - Senior Project Manager in Tampa, FL

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

    Pros

    At Nielsen there is opportunity for career movement, relaxed office culture, good locations and travel opportunities, interesting industry and field

    Cons

    Like with other companies, lots of politics, turnover rate seems high and there are only a handful of subject matter experts in any given area, everyone is stretched too thin over too many projects

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    help employees prioritize, do not spend excessively when the company is experiencing cuts

    Current Employee - Software Developer in Oldsmar, FL

    I have been working at The Nielsen Company full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    It's a very interesting business. The pay scale is average to Ok. Management has laid-off most of the unattractive people and replaced them with younger, cheaper, more attractive people (I know this sounds like a rant but it's bizarrely true). The company is big enough that it survived the leveraged buyout.

    Cons

    Dilbert in action. Nielsen is in a continuous layoff mode (US employees only) while TCS effectively runs the IT department (since they can't be fired). If you are considering a job in the IT department, RUN, don't walk away.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management knows exactly what they are doing.
