I have been working at Nielsen full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Everyone knows of Nielsen, so working for The Nielsen Company is great to include on a resume.

Also, in such a large and diverse company there are a lot of opportunities to grow a career here, especially if you are able and willing to move for opportunities.

Cons

The benefits here are pretty bad. Medical insurance is bare bones and the vacation time is as lean as they can legally get away with... on the upside, a lot of positions allow the opportunity to work from home, especially after you have been here a while.

Advice to Management

If you want to attract and retain the top talant you must compensate them with similar packages to other top employers. I know many people who have left Nielsen because the pay/benefits were better and they are highly employable.

    I have been working at Nielsen full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Autonomy, pay for performance, and working in the field with good people.

    Cons

    The job is ending. The new meter tested in Dallas is a sign that less technical people will be needed in the future. Start looking for other jobs now. The VP who switched from Ops to MR side lets you know where the company is headed. This meter is a plug in the wall and report device. Not very technical and a minimally technical MR could install it. It was a great job while it lasted.

    Advice to Management

    Just sell us already.
