    Pros

    If you are starving its a job

    Cons

    be warned!!!!
    They will lie about everything to get you in the company.
    Then you find yourself working with out dated equipment that does not work.
    You will be working 60+ hours to make their ridiculas numbers.
    You gain 0 experience that will help you in other industries and the average employee will not even make 2 years. They burn you out and then toss you aside.

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

    Pros

    WFH sometimes. Nothing else comes to mind.

    Cons

    Very chaotic style of work. Extreme offshoring with cheap inexperienced people. 7-Eleven style work environment. You're expected to work 24 / 7 with no appreciation of any kind. Most experienced people have left or leaving. The only people who stay are those who can not get a position in another company. This is the only company I've seen where employees quitting after weeks or months of their start date is regular and normal.

    Advice to Management

    Going cheap to the extreme might make more money in the very short run. In the long run however, you're just destroying the whole company.
