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

    Pros

    There are opportunities to move within the organization, commitment to diversity (although mainly in entry-level to mid-management), many activities for employees to take part in, many departments allow you to work from home.

    Cons

    Not for the entrepreneurial minded, lots of unnecessary approvals to get the simplest tasks done, lots of corporate politics, many employees are socially awkward.

    Advice to Management

    There would be more innovation if there was less bureaucracy.

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

    Pros

    It's a large, multi-national company that has a great purpose and an extensive background in understanding and capturing information about consumers. You can grow your career and learn a lot if you end up in the right department working for the right type of manager.

    Cons

    Long work hours. Poor training. Pockets of great people are buried around poor management and partially trained workers. Upward or lateral mobility is often limited or restricted by management as knowledge has either been shown the door, or left on their own.

    Advice to Management

    You have a good company that could be great. Please recognize that young, talented people straight out of college don't always have the depth of experience needed to lead large teams or develop integrated processes. Everyone deserves opportunities to grow and be put into high level reporting positions.
