I worked at Nielsen full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Everyone there was extremely friendly and courteous. We had access to tons of market research data from various other departments and endless learning tools, both online and classroom types. Most managers were great and easy to work with, plus the "Nielsen" name carries tremendous weight in the market research world and is an exceptional resume builder.

Cons

Time to time, the hours you've to put in were rough, and were not justified by the salary. Also, Nielsen paid next to nothing to help with further education (eg. mba). Finally, a lot of entry level & junior associates were asked to share desks (though large), but we literally got no privacy.

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

    Pros

    The ability to work remotely.

    Cons

    There is no training in place to educate new hires, you are basically thrown into projects and expected to keep up
    This company has one of the most insecure/short sighted managers, nobody is capable of looking at the Big Picture and motivate the team, most of them lead teams with a culture of fear.
    Senior Mgmt has the same team from 10 -15 years and they get to play musical chairs, no room for anyone else.
    The experienced folks in this company are holding this company afloat until the new grads take over and more work is outsourced to TCS

    Advice to Management

    You are losing experienced employees, time to take action is NOW
