Top CEOs: 2016 (#45)
I worked at Nielsen full-time (More than 5 years)
I was in the GBS Emerging Leaders Program and was pushed to grow and be my best! Leadership was invested in us as a program and as individuals. I had wonderful mentors. Most of my managers, out of the 7 roles I had over my years there, were excellent as well. I liked being able to change roles in the rotational program and then after that, switch every few years.
The people at Nielsen tend to be smart and good with numbers and I enjoyed working in that environment.
In my personal research on the market, Nielsen pays below average in major metropolitan areas. For example, starting pay offered in Chicago vs. Tampa was the same but cost of living between those two cities varies greatly. The pay in moderate size cities is just fine. But if you move to a larger city, or start in a large city, your pay may not reflect the cost of living there. But of course, pay is not everything in life. Experience and the people you meet matter too!
The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Nielsen (New York, NY).
The first round of interview is conducted in campus. The questions include self introduction, your motivation, your understanding of their business lines and some background questions. There will be tests to evaluate your Putonghua skills. Then it comes the market sizing questions.
