    Pros

    Loving the working culture here, people are open and less hierarchical. Hot desking system - sitting together with all the bosses

    Qualitative Intern At Nielsen

    Former Intern - Consumer Insights in Singapore (Singapore)
    Former Intern - Consumer Insights in Singapore (Singapore)

    I worked at Nielsen as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    They were a really nice bunch of people. I was only there for a month so I didn't get too much responsibility. They were however, well versed with having interns.

    Cons

    Work is pretty repetitive which doesn't change much in your time there. Working hours are flexible and you can wear a smart casual.

    Keep up the good work!

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities for training. A lot to learn. Great culture, people are really nice and friendly. Great HR department.

    Cons

    Long working hours. Work can sometimes get routine. Rather gradual learning curve as you learn more about the operations of the company rather than general knowledge.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve in work life balance by spreading out the workload.

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

    Pros

    Good effort to onboard new employees and make them feel welcome
    Hierarchy is not the basis for who to talk to...you have ideas, then feel free to share them. You will be admired for doing so.
    People are professional and easy to work with.
    HR folks are very open and treats you fairly!
    They are also willing to listen and help!
    The MD is easy to talk to

    Cons

    You need to be comfortable w matrix mgt and ambiguity to thrive

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too much control of budget has its downside

    I worked at Nielsen

    Pros

    Skill trainings helped to assimilate new employees into the job. People are genuinely nice and fun, which eased the tension of the fast-paced and work stress. Managers are also very approachable and they are open to new ideas too.

    Cons

    Learning of their software system may take up some time and due to the nature of the industry, employees may have to work OT.
