    I have been working at The Nielsen Company full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great flexibility, many opportunities if you are willing to relocate, some talented directors.

    Cons

    Some very weak directors, inability to relocate can be detrimental.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train leadership better. Give employees an outlet to voice issues when they are given new leadership that is not up to par.

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

    Pros

    Great 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.

    Cons

    Not 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.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value the MBA
