I have been working at The Nielsen Company full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Everyone knows of Nielsen, so working for The Nielsen Company is great to include on a resume.

Also, in such a large and diverse company there are a lot of opportunities to grow a career here, especially if you are able and willing to move for opportunities.

Cons

The benefits here are pretty bad. Medical insurance is bare bones and the vacation time is as lean as they can legally get away with... on the upside, a lot of positions allow the opportunity to work from home, especially after you have been here a while.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

If you want to attract and retain the top talant you must compensate them with similar packages to other top employers. I know many people who have left Nielsen because the pay/benefits were better and they are highly employable.

    Pros

    Vast FMCG exposure. Generally good people.

    Cons

    Um, typical big company limitations - little reward for the ability to perform with client, outside of defined role responsibilities.
