    I have been working at Nielsen full-time

    Pros

    Lots of opportunity to gain experience in MMM Project Management, Modeling and Delivery. Some really smart folks within the group.

    Cons

    Long hours, little recognition and similar narrative to all of the other similar reviews. Too many squeaky wheels within the group, who tend to get the most attention (staffing, resources, projects, recognition) and this is something that is passed on to their direct reports, results are beyond nauseating.

    Pros

    It pays the bills. Its a good filler for your resume.

    Cons

    No raises. There is a struggle with getting the tenured employees on board with the new policies. There is no accountability. No moral compass.

    Advice to Management

    Make accountability one of the corporate values.

    Pros

    Great people. Wonderful Data. Exciting and interesting projects.

    Cons

    Nielsen makes some totally illogical decisions at a high level that are detrimental to their business

    Advice to Management

    Look at the number of decisions the business has made that in retrospect hurt the business. Don't try to solve those problems with illogical actions in the opposite direction, just plan more carefully and don't make those mistakes in the future.

    The people are wonderful and depending on the team, it can be great. It's very open and accepting.
