    I have been working at Nielsen full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    I've had 5 different jobs in the 10 years I've worked here and each one has been more interesting than the last. All were driven by my performance, potential and interest.

    I also love the fact that Nielsen still has a lot of room for growth and development... the work I do will leave a legacy for many years to come.

    I've had many opportunities to leave since I've been here but each time I keep coming back to the fact that Nielsen is a very interesting company, does great work with our clients and continues to innovate. It's a story I love to tell.

    Cons

    We don't have all the resources/systems you would expect to see at a big company and we're often dollar constrained from making the investments we should.

    I have been working at Nielsen full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Recent changes in the executive team demonstrate the company's commitment to promoting talent from within. The CEO and several other members of senior leadership are tried and true Nielsen veterans who have grown up with the company. People here are passionate about doing the right thing for our clients every single day, and there is so much more teamwork and collaboration here than anywhere I've worked in the past. I can honestly say I love working for Nielsen.

    Cons

    I can only comment on the U.S., where I am based. The benefits are not as competitive as other organizations I have worked for in the past, especially the medical insurance plans.

    I have been working at Nielsen full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    My favorite part about working at Nielsen is the people. The smart, friendly people make coming to work something I look forward to every day. As far as the company culture, Nielsen can best be described as open and flexible. As long as you keep performing at a very high level, Nielsen will never count hours or days in the office - it's more about the quality of work you do than when you do it. Additionally, Nielsen's culture of meritocracy recognizes those that do perform at a very high level and invests in their personal and professional growth and development.

    Cons

    Like many companies, Nielsen creates a very fast-paced work environment which can sometimes be a challenge given limited time and resources.

    Great Job...

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Nielsen

    Pros

    Not micromanaged, free reign to do your job, company car(can be either a ford fusion or escape), gas card, iPhone, management where I am is great, very very flexible, off weekends, good benefits. Very good pay if you hit bonus which is not hard. You can pretty much move anywhere in the US, and they will pay relocation costs.

    Cons

    We are supposed to be self scheduling reps, but the ladies in the office will at times schedule appointments and move things around in your schedule without asking. You're by yourself all day, so it does get lonely. Emails constatntly coming in, so you feel like you're on call. Equipment is old, but new equipment is on the way.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nothing. Overall, a great job. They're constantly trying to improve the environment for their employees.
