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

    Pros

    I'm writing this from the perspective of a new college hire who joined their Professional Services or Client Service business. Not sure I can speak for other non-salary functions at Nielsen, but in Professional Services, you are given a clear career path and are rewarded for good work via promotions / compensation / additional opportunities. This is good for continuing your career at Nielsen, transferring to other companies, or applying to business school - the skills you gain on the job are definitely sought-after.

    1. challenging, impactful work for clients
    2. no better place to do marketing analytics consulting
    3. there's heavy investment in developing people
    4. wide range of opportunities available if you ever get bored with your role or location; global opportunities, which are available after 1-2 years with the company
    5. working from home / flexible work schedule

    Cons

    1. Compensation for comparable positions at other companies can seem low despite HR saying you're being paid market competitive salary.
    2. Very clear career path for the first 5-7 years of your career and then it becomes hazy how to navigate upwards in such a large company. You have to get good at networking / office politics, etc much like any other company.
    3. Your manager has a large say in your career and it's luck of the draw whether you have a good one or not. Some managers are better than others and Nielsen could likely do some people management training so it's more standardized and best practices are communicated. People are being evaluated against this now though, so that might help.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to promote meritocracy and transparency in how decisions are made. Perhaps train people on how to manage people before you have new hires reporting into them.
