    I worked at Nielsen full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Nielsen provided me with many growth opportunities during my 20 years at the company. The company is in the midst of fast change and new challenges.

    Cons

    As with any company the differences in managers and how they support their staff differs. With so much change in technology and approach focus needs to be on making sure the staff is aware, knowledgeable and comfortable with the new technology as it launches.

    Remember that your staff with experience has been with you through the good and bad and this experience is invaluable during this time of change.
