    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.

    Cons

    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

    I have been working at Nielsen full-time

    Pros

    Work experiences can vary by role and who is on your team and management circle. I love my team, they are very understanding and laid-back even when we are busy. Working in sampling/operations is a pleasure, especially compared to when I used to work in research (at a different company). I receive generous compensation and vacation time. Working from home is always an option. I'm definitely happy to be a part of Nielsen.

    Cons

    Work culture and bonding activities could be amped up in the smaller offices.
