    - Still moving slowly in some departments when all we really need to do is get faster - 6 month outlook not positive @ the moment with rumors of potential sale of buy business. Who knows what will happen next - BIG changes going on company wide, can feel VERY unsettling when you don't get a straight answer

    I worked at Nielsen full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Tons of flexibility, resources, structure, stability, clear processes and some of the nicest people you will ever met.
