I have been working at Nielsen full-time

Pros

- Leader globally in the industry
- Learn a lot and work with top global organizations
- Great place to start career and advance quickly
- Nice mix of client consulting challenges, yet ability to have work/life balance

Cons

- Non-client facing roles could use talent upgrade. Their incentives often not linked to success of company and clients, with little accountability to those who service clients.
- Too many middle & senior managers have limited knowledge about the details of their respective businesses, which sometimes lead to bad decisions.

    Pros

    Company Car, work from home, flexible schedule, Fun to be able to meet nice people in the homes you visit. Always have great stories of the homes that were memorable

    Cons

    Terrible management, will force out employees. Do not promote people who are good in their current position. Make you travel all the time with terrible per diem and long hours.

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

    Pros

    At Nielsen there is opportunity for career movement, relaxed office culture, good locations and travel opportunities, interesting industry and field

    Cons

    Like with other companies, lots of politics, turnover rate seems high and there are only a handful of subject matter experts in any given area, everyone is stretched too thin over too many projects

    Advice to Management

    help employees prioritize, do not spend excessively when the company is experiencing cuts
