  7. "Company in Transition"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Nielsen full-time

    Pros

    Industry Leader in the TV Ratings and CPG data space. If they can keep up with emerging trends, they still have a strong market position to be the winner. There is a ton of value in the data that they gather - just a matter of them figuring out how to use it and not getting in their own way.

    Cons

    Company is facing tremendous headwinds and don't believe the leadership team saw them coming and/or is prepared to manage them. The company has grown through acquisition and divestiture on what seems like an as needed / reactionary basis but doesn't necessarily have a long term strategy. Also, they operate in a very siloed manner, resulting in internal fights and not the optimal outcome for clients.

    Between RMS and Media data, Nielsen "owns" tremendous assets needed for advanced analytics

  9. "Okay Company"

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Nielsen full-time

    Pros

    Company has good benefits and PTO

    Cons

    If you do a good job at your job management doesn't want you moving elsewhere. You can't move up unless you know the right people. Micromanaged environment if you work as a Panel Relations Specialist.

    Advice to Management

    Do not micromanage and allow people to move around.
