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

Pros

truly global, opportunities worldwide
work with all major blue chips especially in FMCG
complex, matrix org, great experience
lots of leadership development focus

Cons

so focused on productivity that too often cut too deep
innovation and growth tends to be focused in US and developing markets
operations and finance rather than marketing led

Advice to Management

try to go for more autonomy than micromanagement and learn to trust leaders more
look for ways to invest in growth opportunities and not too much productivity everywhere

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

    Pros

    The atmosphere in the company is good.

    Cons

    Most of the time I have very balanced work and life, but I guess it depends on what kine of duty you have. Sometimes I do need to work when I came back home since you can connect your own PC to the company's...

    Advice to Management
