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

    Pros

    - You get benefits
    - You get to put Nielsen on your resume

    Cons

    - They underpay by ~20% because you get to put Nielsen on your resume
    - Your job will probably eventually be offshored
    - They do not care about retention
    - Most executives are men
    - Most of the offerings are out of date and they are very slow with innovation (which doesn't even appear to be a priority)
    - HR is horrific

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
