    Pros

    Nielsen is a Global company, there are a broad range of opportunities for career growth. Whether you're fresh out of college, or an experienced professional, Nielsen is a company where you can cultivate your expertise, use your knowledge to the fullest extent or re-invent yourself. The corporate culture is relaxed while there is a major feeling of being a part of a team. Management is transparent and shares high-level goals and company changes; they're accessible, and want to see employees succeed. They really focus on career development and opportunities for their employees.

    Cons

    Sometimes technology can be a bit outdated.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to be open and transparent to all employees.

    Pros

    Flexibility is the positive aspect of Nielsen work culture. Most of the teams let employees work from home on occasion.

    Cons

    Benefits are little bit lower than industry average. 401K match it lower. Health insurance premiums are higher as salary goes higher.

    Advice to Management

    Most of the IT companies give stock options to employees. Give stock options to lead, architect and above IT folks. It will help retain the talent.

    Pros

    Great opportunities to develop the skills you need to build your career
    Interesting projects and the ability to get involved in them even if not in direct job responsibilities
    Senior leadership excellent at conveying uniform message/values and interacting openly with employees
    Excellent work/life balance and workplace flexibility

    Cons

    Despite process simplification attempts, excessive amount of paperwork and being forced to follow non-value-add processes
    Slow progress despite rapid attempts for change, likely due to "too many leaders, not enough workers" structure

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on technical competencies and less on processes creation
    Spend money on finding and keeping highly technical employees, not employees with business or industry experience
