    I have been working at Nielsen full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent work-life balance. Company promotes from within, invests in developing its staff and does a great job of recognizing employee accomplishments. The company also lives out its stated values of giving back to the local community and valuing the diversity of its employees.

    Cons

    It may sound cliché, but there's nothing worth mentioning.

    Advice to Management

    None. Keep up the good work!
