MEET SOME OF OUR AMAZING NIELSEN GLOBAL CONNECT TALENT TO HEAR THEIR STORIES
Software Engineer, India, Chennai
As a new associate at Nielsen’s office in Chennai, I realized the people I am around make me excited to come to work everyday. Everyone I have met has been very encouraging and helpful when I had questions. I have been able to learn new technologies that I never worked with before. Our main focus is data. As the quantity of data is increasing exponentially, we are challenged day-to-day to come up with the best solutions to the problems our clients face and to do it better and more efficiently. If you’d like to get more of a sense of what it’s like to work with us watch this video.
HR Director, Colombia
Throughout the last 20 years, I have taken up many different roles in different markets. Nielsen has given me the opportunity to grow as a person and as a professional. The company allowed me to create, to challenge the status quo, and propose new ideas. These challenges are really where you find out that you can be more than what you imagine if you put your mind to it and are empowered to express yourself.
North America Sales Leader
Everything we do is to help our clients, our colleagues and our company grow. Great coaching and mentorship has played a significant role in my journey at Nielsen. The global aspect of the company allows you to learn beyond your comfort zones. Through this, we are able to connect all viewpoints around the world for our clients. Nielsen Global Connect has allowed me to regularly try new things I’ve never done before, and leverage the power of teamwork to bring the best solutions to our clients.
Sr. Manager Diversity & Inclusion, USA
I’ve had a couple of client-facing roles, but I never imagined that I would be working in Diversity & Inclusion. It seemed so different from my background. I enjoy the global scope of the D&I work, which brings in so many views and perspectives. We are working to increase the awareness of Diversity and Inclusion within the company and the importance of it. It really touches everyone and all functions.
Stat Ops Projects Leader, Bulgaria
Being with Nielsen for the past five years has allowed me to take on many roles with many different challenges. This company showed me what corporate life is, how you can build a successful career in it, and introduced me to a multicultural environment. It is so important to seek different points of view. And, it’s not difficult, because of the great diversity in the company and the colleagues I work with are based all around the world. I am happy to see that the work I do is being recognized, that I am able to express myself, and that my perspective has value. Once you join us, don’t be afraid to speak up.
ROC Bulgaria Output South Cluster Lead & ROC Bulgaria GTC Lead, Bulgaria
Currently, I have two roles that have allowed me to learn how to lead multiple teams across many different business areas. I enjoy working and developing people, finding their talent, and giving them space to grow. One of my biggest accomplishments is that I was able to nominate someone from my team to be a participant of a global talent accelerator program. No days are the same within this organization, the daily challenges give me the motivation to be better and create better solutions for our clients. It also allows me to test my skills and develop my knowledge in fields that I am not familiar with. I am not sure where else I could find such supporting leaders who are eager to help and grow. There are no limitations to what you can be tomorrow.
Implementation and Change Management Leader, USA
Working at Nielsen Connect has helped me better understand my soft skills. It might be hard at first to understand what you are naturally good at but through networking and all my experiences in the past 14 years, I’ve learned a lot about myself. The people you meet here are what sets the company apart, they are the ones that will motivate you and help you when you may not be feeling your best about a work situation. They will give you that needed boost and help put things into proper perspective.” . Come to this company with an open mind, and try to find mentorship where you can. People want to share their experiences and help you, but that can only happen if you bring your whole self to work and are ready to develop.
Sr. Analyst, Solution Activation, Canada
As the Solution Activation team, we are the bridge between the client and Precima. We have to be subject matter experts on our solutions and provide clients with the best versions for their business. Working in Precima (a recent Nielsen acquisition), I have had the opportunity to work across many different projects with clients. Our job is to be strategic but creative with the solutions we offer.
Since I joined Nielsen, I have had the opportunity to launch our employee resource group in Canada, called SABLE (Sustaining Active Black Leadership and Empowerment). It is extremely important to me that I get the opportunity to learn from many people and be challenged in my work. You should pursue everything you want because people are willing to share what they know and teach you if you put yourself out there.
