    Pros

    Iconic company to get on your resume. Established industrial best practices to lead the industry. You need to level with Nielsen in order to be better than them at their game. Get in there and you will realize the competitors are far behind.

    Cons

    Nielsen has access to a lot of potential employees. It is not easy to get in at the level and pay you want. Bite the bullet and get the Nielsen name on your resume to propel you forward. You will be paid peanuts compared to what the competitors will pay you, but the training is valuable!

    Advice to Management

    Comb through your junior ranks and discover the talents, promote and pay them well. Lots of people are stolen before they get promoted. By then it will cost a lot to hire them back.
