Depends what you want in life!

Project Manager (Current Employee)

I have been working at The Nielsen Company full-time for more than 3 years

ProsGreat work culture.
One of the better MNCs to work in
Challenging roles, good global exposure
Possible to achieve good work life balance...but cant guarantee!

ConsThe company as an overall is still not very profitable, the company is not doing a lot of "cool" stuff...though they try hard
Given that the operations are spread across the globe they are spread very thin and dont focus on
Not the best pay master.

Advice to Senior ManagementThere is too much focus on "client" focus more on yourselves and your employees.
