    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 Management

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

    Pros

    Always room for advancement based on your merits and not on who you know or seniority. Mangement listens to the needs of the employees and does their best to accomodate everyone.

    Cons

    Some late hours and demanding working conditions not unlike any other job dealing with the eneral public.

    Advice to Management

    Keep an open diaolg with the field, it is easy to lose touch and have the field reps feel that no one is listening.
