    Pros

    Opportunities for advancement/growth

    I have been working at Nielsen full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great pay, challenging yet rewarding work, team atmosphere, bonus isn't always guaranteed but can be lucrative, company car, laptop, phone, etc, never a dull day. Lots of peers that are willing to help someone new learn the role and help them along the way. Working well with each other is highly promoted in our group. Give this company a second look.

    Cons

    Can be long hours, have to want to work outside of regular business hours, many great people on the team and it is hard to promote them all. Each person on the team needs to pull their weight or the rest of the team can suffer because it makes it tough for market to hit its targets.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work and thanks for keeping us heading in the right direction

    Pros

    Nielsen provided me with many growth opportunities during my 20 years at the company. The company is in the midst of fast change and new challenges.

    Cons

    As with any company the differences in managers and how they support their staff differs. With so much change in technology and approach focus needs to be on making sure the staff is aware, knowledgeable and comfortable with the new technology as it launches.

    Advice to Management

    Remember that your staff with experience has been with you through the good and bad and this experience is invaluable during this time of change.
