    I have been working at Nielsen full-time

    Pros

    The people here are amazing, they are the main reason I enjoy coming into work every day. The flexible remote work policy is awesome as well, in most full time roles you are able to work remotely whenever you need to (if not all the time).

    Cons

    Since it's a large, old company, change is slow. They also re-org every year which can leave you feeling like you never have time to truly get things moving.

    I worked at Nielsen full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Never bored, good benefits, very diverse

    Cons

    Over worked & under paid. Too much reliance on contractors, lack of accountability for OS consultants. Too many Directors with poor management skills.

    Advice to Management

    In case you have not noticed, it's booming economy. You want to retain great talent you have to pay more in salary. Promotions appear to be based on longevity more than they do talent/skills. Need to trim back on Director levels with terrible management skills.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Nielsen full-time

    Pros

    Flexibility to work remotely, and work with a wide range of CPG companies.

    Cons

    TOXIC work environment - very long hours, passive aggressive/manipulative interactions are the norm, and HR and leadership make it clear that employees matter far less than revenue!

    Advice to Management

    Respect your employees, and stop pretending that meritocracy is objective. This outdated system fosters an environment in which no one trusts one another.

    The quality of work delivered to clients is slipping, and they are starting to notice.
