Nielson is a great place to work
Team Leader (Current Employee) –  Sarasota, FLJuly 19, 2018
Nielson is a great place to work and they offer different
job opportunities within the company. There is room for growth and job promotions and the ability to travel. Nielsen is a nationwide company that you can transfer to a different state and work for Nielson if needed.

No Diversity in hiring or promoting employees.
Team Leader (Former Employee) –  Dunedin, FLJuly 16, 2018
My job was to help develop new employees and also coach up those that were part of my direct reports.

The Workplace culture recently changed and was not very diverse in their hiring or promoting practices.

The hardest part of the job was ensuring that all employees in the call center were being helped. The most enjoyable part of the job was helping others reach their goals and find their niche.
Pros
The coworkers that worked hard.
Cons
The company not seeing the value in all types of people. Not being diverse.

Good place to work
Sr. Data Production Associate (Current Employee) –  Oldsmar, FLJuly 15, 2018
Good place to work overall. The atmosphere in my department was great with the managers we had. Opportunities to learn new things were abundant in the beginning but slowly dwindled. However, managers are willing to help find learning opportunities for the team. The best part of the job was learning everything in the office and helping others. It felt like a real team working together.

Typical office job
Data Analyst (Current Employee) –  Oldsmar, FLJuly 11, 2018
Working at Nielsen is OK. It is the typical office setting and culture. The technology is well behind other companies I have worked for. The compensation and pay raises are below average. I don't feel micro-managed and you do have opportunities to improve on your business skills.

Very good company to work for and by far the highest paying straight out of high school but it all depends on numbers. It's basically commissioned based.

Very stressfull and late hours are required
Spanish Bilingual Membership Representative (Former Employee) –  New York, NY 10003July 8, 2018
Worked early evening hours and was very stressfull. Faced dangerous situations while working in the evening visiting homes. Management shows very little interest in its employees. Work results are to be met on a weekly basis no matter what. You end up working longer hours, which are unpaid, in order to meet requirements.
Pros
Working outside
Cons
Late hours

Very horrrible place to work
Sales Manager (Former Employee) –  Los Angeles, CAJuly 2, 2018
Nielsen has the highest turn over rate and now I know why. Their is a lot of favoritism from upper management including certain religions and employees of that religion are usually the ones that get promoted. Upper management is horrible an they pretty much fire people for no reason at all.
Pros
Comapny Car
Cons
No work life balance at all.

Large Company and all that entails
Vice President, Group Client Director, Analytics (Current Employee) –  Princeton, NJJune 28, 2018
Typical day varies greatly depending on your unit.
For most units, the environment is very structured. Different units "own" different tasks so one has to tread lightly.
If you want a well defined set of responsibilities and don't mind a structure somewhat like the military, it's a fine place to work.
It depends critically on who your manager is.
