I have been working at The Nielsen Company as an intern

Pros

Big emphasis on developing young talent pool, so there are a lot of company wide programs for interns and new hires to get them more engaged and enthusiastic about the company. Office culture varies greatly depending on the location, however that culture always seems to be the best fit for that office and all the people are generally good people to work with.

Cons

Compensation could be better for beginning position. However, the big meritocracy policy sets up successful workers for appropriate promotions.

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

    Pros

    Somewhat independent work schedules, company car, benefits OK

    Cons

    Corporate mentality pervades this company, middle management especially inept as regards people skills, fear and intimidation used often as motivators, salary is not equal to work/stress load

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    People make up this company, not numbers. Make it possible for employees to actually care about the future growth of the company instead of just fearing for their job safety.
