    I have been working at Nielsen full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    The people are incredibly smart, driven, and its an energetic environment. The career growth and opportunities are endless in this Meritocracy environment. The organization places a strong emphasis on its values for its employees and for its clients. Due to it being a global company, opportunity to work from home is very common for many roles. Nielsen is a very cross functional environment and you have the opportunity to interact with a lot of different functions within the business.

    Cons

    Some positions require a significant amount of travel which can at times impact work/life balance but it is a flexible environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The upper management that I have interacted with are very intelligent individuals and generally care about their employees and the culture of the organization.
