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

Pros

Opportunity to interface with some of the largest companies in a variety of capacities; ability to travel; breadth of different jobs internally and places to work (throw a dart at a map of the US and you'll likely hit a Nielsen office/FTE).

Cons

Feels behind the times; opportunity for innovation is throttled by upper management who appears to have advanced by virtue of their political savvy and client service, versus their analytic chops. For employees in the US, the emphasis is decidedly on the soft skills because much of the heavy lifting is done by folks in India.

Advice to Management

The opportunities for Nielsen continue to be huge in the marketing analytics and measurement space; strive to move faster and invest more in people who can keep up.

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

    Pros

    Get to work with super-intelligent, passionate people who are doing really interesting things. When you are in a period of your life where you can working all day and night, this is a great place to grow fast.

    Cons

    Poor work-life balance. Hard to keep up if you can't work 14-hour days on a regular basis.

    Advice to Management

    Need to focus more on revenue growth than cost-cutting. Having too few, over-worked employees does not allow them to focus on the ideas, development, and value added work that clients are willing to pay for.
