    I worked at The Nielsen Company full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I worked for the Customized Research division and since it was my first job, I was able to learn a lot! Listing down the pros would be - great learning, opportunities, interaction with top minds in the market research industry, decent pay, great models to work with, excellent infrastructure and an amazing open culture!

    Cons

    there will never be any work-life balance, working for multiple teams might happen in case you are a fresher and joined recently, HR is quite slow and rude at times

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to look after the lower levels of employees first and the targets will naturally be achieved soon enough. Attrition is extremely high and this is due to the senior management alone!
