    Pros

    While Nielsen may not throw tons of money to promoted employees, it is a very stable company that has very strategically positioned itself in the market. If you are relatively young in your career, there are more opportunities for exposure and the company invests a ton in leadership programs. Also, because Nielsen is a global company (in over 100 countries), there are more opportunities to work abroad & gain global experience.

    Cons

    - As Nielsen's offices continue to downsize and employees are increasingly working remotely, it can be makes challengingto develop strong relationships with co-workers/team members.
    - Because Nielsen is such a global company, made up by several companies,there is a lot of red tape and decision-making is often slowed down; however, that is not to say Nielsen is not open to change.
    - For a while, nepotism was on the rise; but hopefully with the new CEO in place, this practice will quickly diminish.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Improve training for managers and reward them significantly above those who don't see the value in coaching.

    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Autonomy, vision for future. Best assets in the business, now the challenge is to integrated them to make the maximum impact on clients. Working hard to increase the overall talent level each year - GE mentality.

    Cons

    Difficult to integrate assets and speak with one voice to clients. Limited training opportunities. Compensation can be less than market competitive. Career progression mapping can be unclear.
