    I worked at The Nielsen Company full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Connections with key decision makers at the largest CPG companies in the world.
    Opportunities to work across the many service areas of The Nielsen Company.
    The opportunity to bring multiple research capabilities and services to the client with One Voice.

    Cons

    With its syndicated mentality, Nielsen senior management struggled to understand why revenues from a custom based service did not increase on an annual basis at the same level as syndicated services.

    Our custom group was shuffled multiple times within the company until it recently found a home within the Shopper/Consumer Insights area.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Appreciate the fact that, in those years in which the company passes along increased costs to clients for providing data from the world's largest retail account, client's revenue budgets vis-a-vis spending on custom research services will be significantly reduced.
