    I have been working at Nielsen as a contractor (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Started working for Nielsen in 1998. Learned so many technical skills there. Can't be underestimated. They are the pioneers of data science.

    Nielsen is huge, this slows some things down and makes it less agile than its competitors
    Still, they are flexible enough on a regional basis to make things work.
    This is a very smart company
