    I have been working at Nielsen full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It is a good company with opportunity for career development in different areas and presence in most major cities, flexible and good work life balance.

    Cons

    Client services workload depends on clients requests. Does not provide a lot of training for internal tools, it’s more of a self training pace and relying on peers’ knowledge.

    Advice to Management

    Provide better training of internal tools in order to give better service to clients.

    I worked at Nielsen full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Hands on experience with some of the most ubiquitous data resources across many industries. Willingness to teach fundamentals to young talent and grow internally. Solid work life balance.

    Cons

    Less than competitive salaries, generally. Very rigid deliverables with little opportunity to engineer your own comprehensive solution.

    I worked at Nielsen full-time

    Pros

    Had a good experience as a consultant here. Lots of talented people who work really hard.

    Cons

    Work was really cyclical- there were times when it was extremely chaotic and we were way over capacity, while other times were fairly slow. I wish there was a more consistent work stream.
