    Pros

    Relaxed work environment, flexible hours, generous time off policy. A good place to start out and make friends and get your feet wet in the corporate culture.

    Cons

    Some teams promote their employees all the time, some don't at all which seems unfair. Management tends to play favorites and those who aren't in the "in-crowd" can be left behind

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop playing favorites. Consider not waiting until the last minute to solve problems and forcing everyone to scramble.

    comScore is an analytics company, not tech, that moves slowly and is very reactionary to market need.

    Pros

    -Laid back environment
    -Great people
    -casual dressing
    -lots of office activities

    Cons

    -very low salaries as compared to industry standerds
    -Every second person is a manager of some kind
    -Promotion is not based upon performance but rather on the years you have been with the company- thus a lot of unworthy people end up becoming managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The middle layer of management needs to be smaller- too many managers spoil the broth.

    Pros

    Good people, and the satisfaction of contributing to an industry leader.

    Cons

    Low pay - they try to hire lots of kids straight out of college. Hard to climb the ladder. Upper management is near universally uninspiring. Don't cover any transportation costs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get someone other than Magid to speak to the employees. He's brilliant, but incredibly boring as a speaker. He does not inspire.

    Pros

    Cons

    Transfer people from team to team frequently, I know it's because of young company's flexibility.. but you can only say so when you're not the one who got transferred; low pay, long hours

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    no
