    I have been working at Nielsen full-time

    Pros

    Culture is the most important thing at Indeed. Great environment to work. Food and drinks are provided on a daily basis.

    Cons

    Work/Life Balance is a bit off, but only due to volume of work not to any pressure applied by management

    Advice to Management

    Indeed has been a great place to work. With any growing company, there have been moments of stress. But through strong leadership and a clear mission (I help people get jobs), Indeed has been an amazing place to work. The challenges are daily and varied and leave me satisfied. I have grown a lot working here and see a lot of potential for more in the future.

    I have been working at Nielsen (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Solid Company. Long history. Opportunity to move within the company to expand career.

    Cons

    Lots of re-orgs. Little input from staff into which part of the org you end up working in.

    Advice to Management

    There is a lot of reporting on programs that is redundant and waist a lot of time and energy.

    I worked at Nielsen full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Nielsen is a large institution that has been around for a very very long time. They provide stability and consistency in your job and the freedom to work anywhere. Since I've left, nothing about that has changed. There's also opportunity to move to other offices since Nielsen is a global organization.

    Cons

    Pay and Challenge. Nielsen is notorious for underpaying it's employees, you go for the brand name and the career development, not the pay. This is also a place that isn't very challenging for most people, you go in and you do good work.

    Advice to Management

    I know a lot has changed since I've left and I'm very glad to see those changes made. Keep on the path and keep believing in Mitch.
