Pros

Learn skills like excel and client management that's easily transferable to other jobs

Cons

Data used is tainted. The act of changing numbers in favor of clients is widespread and evidently entwined in the culture at comScore. People turn their heads but that's why turnover is so high and why I left--you end up not believing you're providing a good/honest product to clients that will positively impact ROI. I have heard people make up panel data to skew in favor of a client! Also, there is no transparency to clients and to internal folks. There's a "locked" folder that details "true sample size" (invisible to client service folks) that have the real sample/panel size... comScore says they have 1 million panelists in the US but at any given time the panel is as low as 500K or less! Horrible business ethics...

    Pros

    Very intelligent, bright work force.

    Cons

    Salaries are below market in a very expensive area to live.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to maintain small startup culture. The 2% matching on the 401(k) is pitiful.

    It started quickly, but the learning, growth and joy tapered off just as quickly.

    Pros

    wonderful, friendly coworkers; good opportunities to work with lots of research data collected from millions of global sources; very inexpensive healthcare premiums

    Cons

    very little growth opportunities for anyone hired in the past 3 years; 2 layoffs in the past 3 years; weak 401k matching (max of 1.5% of salary with 5 year vesting)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get expenses under control. 30% revenue is great, but expenses are growing much faster. Accept slower, smarter growth instead of spurts of fast growth followed by layoffs, hiring freezes, or salary reductions or freezes.
