    I have been working at The Nielsen Company full-time

    Pros

    - Global leader in the industry
    - Career clear path with lots of potential for relatively quick advancement
    - Exposure to lots of different companies and thought leadership
    - Generally culture of smart and nice people

    Cons

    - Some senior management not inspiring and out of touch (particular in HR and Finance)
    - Operations departments have some good people but generally not world class
    - If you are not performing (i.e. bottom 10%) you will not be around for long

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve your communication and connecting with employees across the business. There are a lot of exciting things going on that we could better publicize and empower local leadership with. Clean up HR department. Shocking lack of accountability, attention to detail, and reactive culture within this function. Talent level could generally be better and HR involvement tends to make situations worse.
