Pros

There are some great opportunities at Nielsen if you know how to work the system. Offers a great work/life balance.

Cons

Too many changes all at once.
Little to no place to have private or confidential conversations, such as reviews with your manager or HR . Office atmosphere is cold. Even with new configuration of office space, people still don't talk to each other or make the office a comfortable working environment.

Advice to Management

Not enough face-time with management and upper management

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Nielsen is a leader in most of the markets the company serves, with name recognition and a generally good market image.

    Cons

    Meeting/exceeding performance is at "all costs" with little reflection on the effectiveness of implemented policies, training, communication and organizational structure.

    Advice to Management

    Senior management serves senior management first. In keeping tight structure, employee creativity is stifled. Your customers end up even farther removed from focus.

    Pros

    A great place to start your career. There are great opportunities to work with advanced tools that can answer some of the business questions of the world's leading companies. This experience is highly valued in the marketplace and lead to future opportunities.

    Cons

    The organization does a very poor job of recognizing talent and promoting leading performers. The promotion process seems arbitrary. Employees often experience more teamwork with clients than within the Nielsen organization. There is often too much emphasis on new processes irrespective of whether or not those processes create efficiency. Compensation is average for marketing research organizations, substandard compared to CPG manufacturers.

    Advice to Management

    Identify talented employees and identify opportunities for them. Be receptive to feedback from the "Individual Contributors" on new processes.
