      Project Manager at London

      1 Apr 2021 - Project Manager (PM) in London, England, England

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Good starting salary. There was some freedom at the working hours and managing your own work. The environment at the office was professional but chill, I didn't feel really stress while working there.

      Cons

      The professional career path has clear and defined lines, making it difficult to switch from one to another. The team was nice but I left without the feeling of knowing anybody at the office besides my manager. It was quite lonely.

      Great Benefits & Learning Prospects with Global Data Leader, but too much red-tape and lack of agility

      15 Sep 2020 - Global Client Partner in London, England, England

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Lots of training opportunities, global and respected data leader (which opens doors), people are lovely and open to collaborating, ability to move around the business, ability to work from home and be flexible in working hours, good benefits! Great place to learn about ground-breaking and industry-leading approaches to media measurement. Nielsen has an enviable client list and one of the first goto suppliers when it comes to media measurement.

      Cons

      Too much red-tape - the motto is: "fewer, faster, better" - but the whole process of getting things done is stifled by red tape. From data admin to ability to customise solutions for clients there is very little flexibility and the company is geared up to essentially make the whole financial forecasting as easy as possible, not the day to day job. Salaries are not very good either, while commission is paid begrudgingly on not very good terms.
