Sr.Net Developer (Current Employee) – Schaumburg, IL – August 21, 2017
Nielsen is a seriously great place to work. Product teams are really close and tight-knit and there's very little friction across functional units. Management takes a very dedicated - yet weighted and scientific - approach to employee feedback and really listens to everyone at every level. The degree of ownership and impact you'd like within your product team is very flexible so everyone can easily find his or her comfort zone.
Field Representative (Former Employee) – Massachusetts – August 21, 2017
I was a field service representative for the Nielsen and I did not enjoy my time working for the company. The job was extremely stressful and unrealistic. Upper management constantly trying to have you fix problems that were unfixable.
The flexibility of the job was great at times; however, I often found myself working more than 50 hours a week. Not your typical 9-5 job. Work schedule is never the same, prepare to work throughout all hours of the day and weekends if necessary.
Loved working there with one big exception....the management was terrible. They have people in these positions that think they have the right to talk down to you. Very unprofessional and do not care about their employees. I was late by 3 minutes and was written up and embarrassed by a team leader. Was enough to make me quit. Not a place where you want to stay because of such bashing.
Loved the work
Bad employee relationships with no concern for your efforts. Management very unprofessional.

If you are looking for something to tie you over until you find a full time job then this is it. They offered no benefits as far as insurance. Working where you could possibly get injured but no benefits.
Editor, TV Data, Assistant PA (Current Employee) – Nokomis, FL 34275 – August 17, 2017
I worked for the paper diary division in Nokomis. It was a temporary job that has lasted nearly eight years. We all come in for about 6 weeks, 4 times a year. I've worked in several positions during this time and enjoyed all of them. The people were generally fun to work with and the work load was reasonable. It is a production facility where you are expected to edit as many diaries as possible while being as accurate as possible. There are dozens of guidelines to follow and your work will be checked by a verification department. If the division (paper diaries) were not closing, I'd continue to work there.
CADC Data Entry (Former Employee) – Nokomis, FL – August 15, 2017
great job for retired people or those wishing to work part time. Schedule was 10 weeks on, 6 weeks off. Handled data booklets from homes all over the country that had agreed to monitor the television usage in their homes. Employees were graded on data input accuracy and volume of work.
Research Interviewer (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – August 13, 2017
great incentives if you really try hard and try to reach the desired goal; teamwork is key but its very repetitive so some may get tired or bored of the same survey and saying the same thing over and over but thats how you get good at surveys.
Field Representative (Former Employee) – Oldsmar, FL – August 11, 2017
They promote from outside and when they do promote within (1 person in 4 years) it was without merit and they picked the person that was cheating, did not have experience, was the worse rep and hardly did any work. When the company wants you to fire you they will look for any infraction to get rid of you, Nielsen is always investigating what you do and they do watch you 24/7 with their tools(gps on car, on phone, EZpass and computers.
car with fuel/insurance paid by company
really BAD managers. they give you a GPS and they follow you 24/7
Manager (Current Employee) – Wilton, CT – August 10, 2017
The company is wonderful to work for, the atmosphere is very laid back, able to work on your own and touch base weekly with supervisors...Salary is competitive. Overall enjoy my time with Nielsen until the supervisor was changed ultimately leading to much confusion and lack of sufficient communication.Other than that, enjoy going to work every day.
Wonderful company to work for, flexibility, pro working from home, competitive salary.
management unprofessional, delayed responses on urgent matters
If you cant' maintain a fast pace, you are headed for the exit. They chew you up and spit you out and its all about the business. Looks like a great opportunity from a distance, but quite different when you get involved in trying to do the job.
Lead Panel Relations Specialist (Current Employee) – Oldsmar, FL – August 8, 2017
Good and fun place to work for we have lots of activities and Nielsen is very involved with the community, I've learned a lot about Media Data research. I've had all excellent bosses here, I truly loved them all. The hardest part is advancement and growth within the company due to different reasons. To me there is no hard part to my job I have and continue to enjoy what I do . I am currently looking to grow within or outside of Nielsen.
Research Interviewer (Current Employee) – Oldsmar, FL – August 7, 2017
All call centers are stressful, but Nielsen provides top tier training. It takes a while to get comfortable and sometimes the rules change, but if you focus on your script and your quality, you can receive great performance incentive payouts.
