    I worked at Nielsen as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Fun and welcoming environment ( comfortable dress code, flexible schedule)
    - Genuinely nice people with a work smart not hard mentality
    - Communication and encouragement fostered
    - Interaction between interns, analyst, project managers, directors, VPs, SVPs
    - Lots of information and tools available to encourage learning and integration

    Cons

    - Pay was subpar
    - Too much technology in the models, hard to understand where some numbers where coming from (This is great for the company, but I like to understand what is going on)

    Advice to Management

    Nielsen is a terrific place, keep interacting with as many employees - How many SVPs have an ongoing email conversation with an intern that is asking for advice?? It meant a lot and showed they really cared.

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

    Pros

    Nielsen is very powerful, with a lot of people (good or bad depends), possibility to travel and interact with big clients.

    Cons

    Having a career there is very difficult, the salaries are low. The employees tracking system is terrible. The data they sell to the costumers is not always real or exact. The products are automated, you need a lot of manual operations to get what you want.

    Advice to Management

    Nielsen should hire new software engineers and try to develop better products.
