Pros

Nielsen has a philosophy of " You take of Nielsen and Nielsen will take care of you!" The freedom to travel and/or relocate with company is endless. Almost everyone I've known has been happy with their position; culturaly diverse and opportunity to advance is HUGE!

Cons

Though work/family life are respected and balanced, it's best to be free of commitments such as spouse or young children. You may be asked to help work a territory for a month or three that's out of state. If you're not free to travel, it can DEFINITELY hinder your ability to appear "mobile" or advanceable....

Advice to Management

Advice to Management: Hang on to employees that are in it for the long-haul--don't always look for the young, unattached, fresh-out-of college employee--there's alot of dedicated Nielsen employees that LOVE what they do and are there for life...

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    - Large company with name recognition
    - Huge networking opportunities - many people who shift in and out of the company are some of the most brilliant people I've met are field experts/frequently cited sources

    Cons

    - Low compensation
    - Pay freezes that take over a year to be lifted
    - Can sometimes dangle a promotion over your head while not giving you an appropriate pay raise but still make you do the extended work of your new role
    - Low bonuses

    Advice to Management

    Stop trying to boost morale with meaningless gestures and just give employees what they really want: sufficient pay increases without waiting for months.

    Pros

    The work is interesting, especially since the company is moving into the digital and mobile realms. There are definitely opportunities to take on additional work and responsibilities if you want it. Relaxed work environment and good people at the company.

    Cons

    Pay is definitely below-average in the market. This leads to high turnover, which leads to substantial workload passed onto remaining employees. There is not much knowledge sharing between verticals within the company, and definitely not much integration with the larger Nielsen company.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize the efforts of your employees by rewarding them with raises and promotions. This will cut down employee turnover and reduce the loss of talent. Come up with a very clear plan and timetable for integration with all of Nielsen and communicate it to employees.
