    Current Employee - GBS Emerging Leaders Associate in Tampa, FL

    I have been working at Nielsen full-time (more than a year)

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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

    I have been working at Nielsen

    Pros

    My experience with Nielsen is they do truly seem to care about the success of their employees. Training is extensive and the mentoring is very solid. They value honesty and integrity and the company believes in what they're doing.

    Cons

    Because it is such a large company, there are a lot of things to keep up with which means that it's easy to let some things slip between the cracks of your day-to-day activities if one is not on the ball. There is a sense of a slightly encumbered management structure but that's not unusual in such a large organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to strive for streamlining and standardizing procedures across the board (which they're constantly working on in a positive way).
