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.

    I worked at Nielsen as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Learning opportunities are great since it is a B2B company and the clients are multinational and national FMCG companies. One can develop a great insight of FMCG sector and trends. Furthermore, working at Nielsen, one can improve her marketing capabilities and skills to a greater extent since it gives a chance to see the big picture shaping the marketing strategies. Another great plus is that it helps significantly for improving in Excel.

    Cons

    The biggest con is the high turnover rate and despite this low promotion chances. Although a lot of Business Analysts work in the company, manager level employees are very few and chances to get promoted are relatively low. Furthermore, high turnover rate is a factor that reduces the motivation of employees. Another negative point is the long overtime hours (even weekend work) especially for the first few months of the year due to the reporting and presentation periods. The salaries are not at a level to compensate this downside but only at average for lower level management.
