    I have been working at Nielsen full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    It’s a sales position in reverse. The company actually pays the family to be in the ratings. A lot of employees appreciate the car.

    Cons

    No work/life balance. The initial training was phenomenal but it lasts for 16 weeks which is far too long. Micro management is an understatement. The ratings are supposed to be true and organic but they are skewed. Management retaliates if you get on bad side.

    "Panic w/Coronavirus Yet Nielsen Wants Me Going Door to Door"

    I have been working at Nielsen full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Company Car Benefits Flexible Schedule Getting hired here is easy as you don't need a college degree.

    Cons

    So I am ready the news with headlines such as "Top Doc: 10 Times More Deadly Than the Flu" and "X-Rays Show Terrifying Damage in Lungs of Victim" yet Nielsen is requiring me to go knock on doors all day to homes of complete strangers. While responsible decision makers are closing schools, cancelling events and asking office employees to work from home, my company is telling me to go into counties with confirmed presence of coronavirus to knock on doors. The sad thing is you don't make any money at this job and they obviously don't care about us. The CEO loves to portray himself as this compassionate SJW but he is just a phony as I'm out here subjecting me, my family and community with exposure.

    As we closely monitor the spread of COVID-19 and its impact on communities across the globe, our hearts go out to all those who have been affected. Our number one priority is protecting the health and well-being of our employees. We suspended all in-person visits to homes until we believe it is safe to resume in-person visits. In these uncertain times, all of us at Nielsen are reminded of our responsibility to do what we can to help prevent the spread of the virus.

    I have been working at Nielsen full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Car, cell phone, laptop, flexibility, ease of getting the job

    Cons

    This is NOT a safe job. Going to people’s homes in the middle of nowhere by yourself is not safe for anyone and especially not for women. I don’t know why they send reps to people’s homes AND CONTINUE to send them to homes that have refused to participate every 6 months. I’ve been told by many reps that they have been assaulted, bit by dogs and HAD GUNS PULLED ON THEM. The risks of being kidnapped, injured or killed on the job are not worth it.

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

    Pros

    The benefits are great; medical, dental, life, disability, vision, 401K, stock, etc.

    Cons

    When you're really good, they take you for granted and take advantage of you. The opportunities are out there but very few females are in upper management. I personally believe that there's a culture of the "good ol' boys club" and misogyny.

    I have been working at Nielsen full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Benefits heavy company. Company car is nice as well as free gasoline but expectations are unrealistic - only sales people who "succeed" either cheat or work 50-60 hours a week.

    Cons

    Like high school - who ever people like get to hang around - a LOT of ineptitude here. Most of the time the software doesn't work or the hardware is faulty and they are constantly putting out untested things and then blaming the employees for not hitting their numbers Managers manage sales force and have no sales experience. They love to promote people into jobs they are unqualified for.
