    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Nielsen as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good work culture
    Great team to work with
    Work from home facility without much ado
    Easy leave facility
    Good chances of growth if your manager is good

    Cons

    Salary too low as per industry standard

    If you are on contract(3rd party) basis, very less chances on getting permanent with the company
    So make sure you are on company pay roll

    Sometimes work become too repetitive

    Advice to Management

    Get employees more in the company payroll else attraction rate would be high

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

    Pros

    I've been here for more than 4 years and it's really a great place to work, though it depends on the team that you get in. For the North American team, timings are 2pm - 11pm which is great since you can do a lot of stuff before 2pm (like bank work or doc appointment) and we always leave by 11.15pm since we have a drop facility and everyone else shouts if we dont hurry up. Flexible timings and work from home whenever you feel like it (monsoons are when everyone comes to office for better internet speed). Culture is superb, mostly MBA freshers, so average age ~25 years. Promotions happen quite often. This is like college life again, but surrounded with smarter people.
    For NA, the field work is pretty straightforward and the managers in the USA are quite smart too!
    If you're good at what you do, there is the chance for Global mobility (some folks have gone to Shanghai, Poland, UK, US)

    Cons

    If you're on the NA account, then workload suffers at different times of the year - mid Nov - Jan expect to work 11 - 12 hrs a day (maybe even weekends), Feb - April its around 3-4 hrs a day!!
    Pretty cash starved so dont expect any Diwali hampers, but the people, culture outweigh this.

    Salarywise (A senior analyst makes about 7.5LPA) you do find better prospects in IMRB, Fractal, Milward or IPSOS, but some of my friends there say they work ~10 hours a day!

    Life cycle here is ~2.5 years, coz you get bored of the work and after a point of time, salary matters more than the friends you make here - sucks!

    Advice to Management

    Better salary ~ will keep employees here longer and more opportunities elsewhere (to Nielsen India or abroad) is desirable
