I worked at The Nielsen Company full-time (less than an year)

Pros

Opportunity to interface with some of the largest companies in a variety of capacities; ability to travel; breadth of different jobs internally and places to work (throw a dart at a map of the US and you'll likely hit a Nielsen office/FTE).

Cons

Feels behind the times; opportunity for innovation is throttled by upper management who appears to have advanced by virtue of their political savvy and client service, versus their analytic chops. For employees in the US, the emphasis is decidedly on the soft skills because much of the heavy lifting is done by folks in India.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The opportunities for Nielsen continue to be huge in the marketing analytics and measurement space; strive to move faster and invest more in people who can keep up.
