Great place to start out and get exposure to CPG companies

Senior Analyst (Current Employee)
Chicago, IL (US)

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

ProsGreat exposure to top level CPG firm, especially right out of college. Gives you a good foundation of excel and how to analysis data. Also, helps you develop client facing skills and how to maintain expectations. Lucked out with a really good leader and the opportunity to work in our international group, meaning colleagures across the world.

ConsNot much room for creativity and innovation, just execute. Compensate on tenure over talent. Very little exposure to top level management. Lately, I hear they are putting restrictions on travel which hinders relationships with clients.
