  • "If you would have asked me three years ago where I would be working, Nielsen would not even have been on the list. Once I learned about the company, however, the advancement possibilities within Nielsen truly inspired me to start and grow my career here. Since Day One, I have met countless individuals who have worked at this company longer than I have been alive. It showed me that Nielsen provides and encourages growth for their employees. I’m grateful for the opportunities presented to me, and I look forward to many more." - Tanner, Field Manager, Atlanta

  • "When I started at Nielsen eight years ago, I didn't know if I could pull off being a widowed single mom, with a grade school daughter and trying to do well in a fast-track career. Now, I can say wholeheartedly that when the company says "Grow with us" -- it's true. I've had the flexibility and support of my managers, teams and mentors to take on new challenges and try new things on the job. I've been able to put my daughter first and still deliver great work. Working with Women in Nielsen (WIN) is a valuable aspect of my Nielsen life. The group champions gender equality globally and I'm passionate about helping my colleagues see how supporting women drives success at work and at home. At Nielsen, I know I'm in good company, with colleagues who are ready to be bold for change." - Pat, VP, Internal Communications, Chicago #experiencenielsen
