    I worked at Nielsen

    Pros

    Good social element with different types of events for employees throughout the year. Opportunities to work with market leading companies.

    Cons

    Very heavy workload at times with little support. Not a lot of opportunities to progress within the Irish business. Often a focus on cost cutting rather than investing money in employees & facilities
