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

    Pros

    Eventually those private equity firms will put it all on the market and things can only get better.

    Cons

    No value for employees. Long hours, tons of outsourcing, constant change in direction and management. No job security. They do not follow their own "code of conduct." Outdated technology.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you are going to clean house, start at the top then go to the middle.

    The company was good to work for until they went public

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at The Nielsen Company

    Pros

    I worked as a field rep. You were able to make your own schedule and some weeks there would be lots of free time.

    Cons

    Constantly worried about getting fired/laid off. Some weeks you would work a ridiculous amout of hours and weekends.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to be a manager. They hire random people from within the company to manage that dont know a thing about managing.
