    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Nielsen full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company tries hard to stay innovative in what they do and please their clients. They do try to foster a close team atmosphere with yearly volunteer days, summer outings and such.

    Cons

    From my experience, which seems typical with many large companies, they don't hire enough employees to properly do the job so that employees are forced to handle more projects than they can handle well, resulting in loss of work/life balance. Change was also slow to happen after discussions for how to improve things and restructuring seemed to happen frequently.

    Advice to Management

    While employees understand there may be days where extra hours are needed, don't overload employees as it increases mistakes and stress. Eventually, you lose good talent when people look for more of a work/life balance and be recognized as a person rather than a number.
