    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).

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

    Pros

    Ability to work remote.
    Career mapping and counseling are available as well as various learning and development opportunities. The company is large and diverse, but is filled with enthusiastic employees.

    Cons

    Divisions can feel isolated. Most IT services are off shore and difficult to get timely responses. Majority of the self service items like Human Resources: benefits management and enrollment are wonky and there is little counsel. You can feel quite alone when trying to solve problems.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage HR business partners to be more than link forwarders.

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