I have been working at The Nielsen Company

Pros

There are some great opportunities at Nielsen if you know how to work the system. Offers a great work/life balance.

Cons

Too many changes all at once.
Little to no place to have private or confidential conversations, such as reviews with your manager or HR . Office atmosphere is cold. Even with new configuration of office space, people still don't talk to each other or make the office a comfortable working environment.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Not enough face-time with management and upper management

Recommends
No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Very client centric company
    Opportunity to be involved with cutting edge technology and futuristic trends in consumer behaviour
    People always ready to share and help

    Cons

    Project prioritisation and resource allocation is fuzzy and leads to flawed project execution at times.
    Tough industry (Market research) even though Nielsen is the leader in most markets - lot of margin pressure, cost cutting drives and quality issues

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Definitely continue with investments in technology that have the capability to put us far ahead of the market/competitors/consumers.
    Also continue focus on improving quality and productivity.

    Pros

    Chance to hone skills of client retention and customer service
    Saw inner workings of market research on the data side
    Team atmosphere
    New ideas appreciated

    Cons

    Company overall was great to work for, however lower level management and staff had seen major cuts and this caused them to be ultra paranoid. Instead of working to produce the best "product" it always felt like working not to get fired.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management and the VP's have made some big decisions regarding workforce lately but I think they kept the wrong people in house during these transistions. They kept "yes men" as opposed to those willing to change and make processes more efficient. Company needs to let go of "that's the way we've always done it".
