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

    Pros

    Flexible work-life balance. Opportunity to move up, particularly if you can blend tech and business skills. Long-term strategy is solid.

    Cons

    It's a tough business climate right now. Nielsen clients (esp on Buy side) are facing a lot of competitive pressure which translates over.

    Advice to Management

    We have to move faster on new tech. There doesn't have to be a trade off between data quality and speed, but we may have to go back to the drawing board to step-change our efficiency.

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

    Pros

    What can I say they are the biggest and the best

    Cons

    They are the biggest and the best so there's competition at every corner and they are slow to adapt

    Advice to Management

    Focus on core strengths and emphasize them. Too sporadic right now chasing too many objectives.
