True work from home employment
Great job if you are okay with cold calling people to do surveys over the phone. Automatic dialer through a computer program. A lot of training and instant messaging with supervisors. You really have to watch yourself and follow wording as well as repeat what the client said and never veer off of the script. You acquire infractions that never go away and then you will be let go. Awesome choices for shifts though... evening was best with more opportunities to make money based on completed surveys. Day shifts were awful because you had to call businesses and it was tough.

Good work life balance with flexible hours
Nielsen is a good company to start your career with as well as to enter in the mid phase. The longer time you spend here, there greater are your chances to succeed.
Pros :

1. Culture: The overall culture of the company is pretty relaxed and open. Opinions are valued,

2. Learning : Learning opportunities are ample. They are the industry leaders and there knowledge base is like a universe of data

3. Flexibility at work : Work profile flexibility is great. After spending a few years in a department if you feel like trying a different tune, you will be encouraged to


Cons :

1. Pay scale: One of the things that matters a lot. The pay is actually average. The attrition that happens in Nielsen is primarily only due to this.

2. Annual Increment : Well at least in Nielsen Canada, for the past two years, there havent been an annual increment

3. Infrastructure : The office building is cool although old fashioned. They have a cafeteria , but no free food. Pay as you go options are available though.


Overall, Nielsen is a good place to start your career with, however sticking to it on the long term would be something you need to think twice upon since the pay checks do tend to feel smaller after a couple of years.

Change, Change, Change
You can move around the company quite a bit which can really expand you experiences and skill set. The company doesn't want to ever stand still which is good in one way, but change for the sake of change is not good. Due to this constant change, fast pace and client demands you will never have a dull moment.
Pros
Lots of roles you can move into to shape an interesting career.
Cons
Company makes too many major changes, too quickly as well

Software Development Intern
They seek to challenge the employees to improve and deliver results that are beneficial to the company. I worked on many C++ and C# aspects of the code base. It was a co-op opportunity so it was more relaxed environment at the time even though there are deadlines to be met. It caters to the individual working style for a safe and reasonable work environment. I like how it tries to be environmentally conscious and save on costs as much as possible. It was a good learning experience as a co-op student.
Pros
Clean environment + thoughtful management
Cons
short stay at company + needs to be self motivated to grow

Perfect remote position. Very professional.
I worked at Nielsen as a remote agent for 6 months. The working experience has been ideal. Insightful job shadowing, thoughtful supervisor and so many interesting colleagues to work with. The reason I left the company is that I couldn't find a work-life balance with the night shift I have. The overall experience is great.
Pros
Remote jobs; OK salaries; Insightful company cultural.
Cons
Remote jobs can be bad if you want to meet people in person.

fun to work for
it was a company that you worked from home to do surveys and it was fun because you did not have any supervisor on your neck but they still monitored you once in a while. the only thing is that you took your breaks all by yourself and it was lonely. The hardest part was to meet your quotas they made it almost impossible to meet them.
Pros
you worked by yourself
Cons
it was lonely
