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

    Pros

    Inclusivity, value diversity and offer flexible working (working from home etc.)

    Cons

    HR stick to policy to much rather than offering a flexible surface, would benefit from more HR analytics to get rid of majority of their task to focus more on the people rather than the policies

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

    Pros

    Flexible working/working from home, gender equality.

    Cons

    Stressful environment, limited career opportunities. Bit of an old boys club, even though that club has ladies in it.

    Advice to Management

    Stop randomly promoting people from with in and be more open with job opportunities.

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

    Pros

    Possibility to work from home

    Cons

    I assume there are variations between departments, but in my area there was none of the diversity the company prides itself for. Zero people management and communication with managers and between team members. Many employees have been in their roles or the company ever since and are therefore unable to see things from a different perspective or to properly train new employees. Meetings about meetings about meetings,...

    I have been working at Nielsen full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Used to be a really good company until 10 years ago Only pros - ability to work from home

    Cons

    Painful reviews each year just to get a cost of living pay rise It's not what you know in Nielsen it's who you know Have a big thing about being a diverse employee now MOSIAC they call themselves - care more about foreign workers and how good it looks for them to employ them - sod the people that work for you for years Completely out of touch, no open & honest - try and talk to your managers manger or above -...

    Advice to Management

    open your eyes, you do your so called employee surveys each year and then do nothing, what about talking to people who do most of the work in Nielsen - OPERATIONS

    I worked at Nielsen

    Pros

    Nice place to work, however very little work/life balance. Great people and very much a team work. Working from home available and you are not being micro management.

    Cons

    Underresourced, big staff turnover, bespoke tools given to use with no or little training. Poor canteen and dated cold in winter office.

    I have been working at Nielsen full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Variety of work on great FMCG clients. Plenty of fliexibility e.g. work from home, work from london office etc. Great management.

    Cons

    Salary and promotions not always based on performance. Sometimes you just have to stick to the bureaucratic progression e.g. 2 years in this role, which means people leave.

    Advice to Management

    Promote based on performance and client feedback, don't want for the end of the role cycle, it shouldn't work that way!

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Nielsen full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    -Work from home -Great foot in the door and great for your CV -Friendly working environment, plenty of people to network with -Room for promotion if you are hungry -Can contact anyone worldwide through skype (I spoke to CEO last week) -International clientele and colleague base

    Cons

    -not made for lazy people - if you are not proactive you could stay in your role forever (some people would enjoy that i guess) -training should be more organised and structured (saying that I managed to cruise through learning through the help of colleagues)

    Advice to Management

    -change of office - i do not personally mind but others do not like the location, and office is old (again I do not mind) -more group meetings/events, not just in department but as a whole

    Flexible working hours - option to work from home few times a week , decent pay, great culture and smart people to work with

    Cons

    Core part of the business is offshore which makes it a bit difficult for those on shore to check properly the quality of the service
