Fast pace environment, surrounded by great talent, but management doesn't allow for open dialog.
Pros: great experience and skills gained. amazing for your resume.
Cons: the management is not focussed on trying to make the team succeed, you have to want it for yourself. most everyone's workload is to the max and depending on the client, their is no room for error. very high turnover.
Time is spent with meeting client expectations, managing expectations, and heavily weighted with meetings (both internally with Nielsen & the client). Managing your own workload is key to success for this roll. Understanding capabilities, and tools to master your job takes work up front but worth it in the end.
Management can be a bear, but worth getting their buy-in, trust, and knowledge to help be a success.
Focus, self starter, understanding full scope, communication, and being articulate are crucial to become a leader.
The most difficult and equally rewarding part of this job is to manage your workload, "put the extra effort in", and never say "no". Because their are many tools at your disposal, it's worth every second staying focused on training, ask relevant questions to understand the big picture, and staying positive throughout all the challenging obstacles.
There is a lot of pressure to succeed, and you will be cut if management feels you miss the mark.
Nearly every team-member I had worked with is no longer working working in their respective capacity from the time I was there.
