    I have been working at Nielsen full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Interesting analytics, interesting clients, many directions for learning new areas of research and new clients and new industries. Pockets of excellence exist. Hiring "nice" people makes for collaborative workplace with low levels of drama.

    Cons

    HR systems seem to be broken with poorly managed recruiting, compensation, promotion management controlled by HR, rather than line management. Little appreciation for experience gained at Nielsen (i.e. compensation for analysts with a few years of experience not keeping pace with the market). Stated values of "simple, open, integrated" do little to motivate, unify staff or drive results.

    Advice to Management

    Your stated goal of becoming a consulting company will never happen when you treat your client-facing consultants so poorly, when you price your products like data and throw in consulting for "free," and have values, "simple, open, integrated," that apply to information systems and not consultative expertise.

    Former Employee - Six Sigma Black Belt in Oldsmar, FL
    Former Employee - Six Sigma Black Belt in Oldsmar, FL

    I worked at Nielsen full-time

    Pros

    If you can hold out until the company is out of the private equity's hands, you can help return it to its former status as a really good company that cares about its people.

    Cons

    Had several Master Black Belt supervisors within 2 yr period. All were primarily concerned with retaining their own position in the company than with mentoring, cultivating, providing guidance to the Black Belts on their respective teams.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to deliver on the "promises" made during BPI recruiting. Must begin providing appropriate levels of support in order to retain quality employees.
