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

Pros

Great corporate vision
Interesting colleagues
Exposure to market data, leading to different career opportunities

Cons

In ability to exeuce the corporate vision
Lack of internal cooperation to acheive corporate goals
Poor leaders in middle management (tend to promote strong analysts)

Advice to Management

The right moves at the top are taking place. There is a hold up in middle manage that is creating downstream problems. Find it and fix it. Then Nielsen moves from good to great.

    I worked at Nielsen full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Nice compensation and perks, working independently

    Cons

    Extreme pressure to produce numbers that are difficult to achieve on a consistent basis, much of your job performance depends on the decisions of strangers to say yes to participating, you're only as good as what you've done this week, no life/work balance

    Advice to Management

    Include quality in your measurement of performance!

    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.
