    Pros

    There is so much opportunity to learn and grow at Nielsen. Many view company as a great place to start a career, but I feel it is also a great destination company where you can have a long, fulfilling career. Top performers will be asked to rotate into new positions which helps with one's career growth and satisfaction. The flexibility to work from home is a major benefit.

    Cons

    Could be an overwhelming environment to navigate for some. Company is currently revamping training program so perhaps the on-boarding process will be enhanced in the future.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up with current communication model - frequent updates on progress and initiatives via webinars.

    I have been working at Nielsen full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The benefits are not terrible, I'm guessing about par for the industry. The paid time off is accrued over time and is very good. Office culture differs depending on what department you are in. The people are great. The office and location are great.

    Cons

    Management pushes every project to an unreasonable deadline, causing important steps to be skipped and quality to be sacrificed. Every day is in crisis mode, there is a lot of stress. Most of the workforce is offshore and the window of communication with them is either overnight via email or in morning meetings. After 10am EST they are unable to be reached. This causes a lot of delay and miscommunication. The off/onshore ratio at the Tampa location is currently approximately 80/20

    Advice to Management

    Get better at estimating the size and complexity of a project before setting a deadline. I have worked on many projects and we are always in crisis mode. People can only do this for so long before they burn out. Nielsen is always sponsoring these 'fun' activities on campus, but only the people who do not really have work to do have the time to spare to attend things like that. I haven't even had time to attend require training.
