    I worked at The Nielsen Company full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    This place provides really flexible work schedules. Really liked the friendly environment and work culture here. Work is pretty interesting and depending on what service you are working on exposure can be immense. The people I have worked with here have been pretty cutting edge and smart. Work culture promotes exploring newer avenues within the organization. Typically offices have small/moderate number of employees, so it is easy to reach out and work with folks across functions

    Cons

    Can get stressful with long work hours. Work life balance can go to a toss (many a times). Career opportunities depend more on being at the right place at the right time rather than meritocracy alone - I've seen some scale up heights real quick while few others really stagnated (with comparable skillsets and expertise)

    Pros

    very few to say, Work life balance

    Cons

    Many, no moral values, managers are poor, treats employees like slaves, work quality is pathetic, no proper system or SOP for any work, MONOPOLY

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Measurement Science India needs a great leader, employees to be valued and cared, all so called great managers need to put efforts in standardizing the processes rather than focusing on fillingtrackers
