Pros

There is a very laid back atmosphere where employees enjoy a business casual attire. The cafeteria has an xBox and is stocked with snacks, letting you relax when things get stressful. Exposure to clients is great and allows entry level employees to hit the ground running. There is very much an entrepreneurial atmosphere, allowing employees to grow the business organically and tackle challenges in a fast-paced technology based firm.

Cons

Occasionally it might be difficult to break away from work. Since there is a large learning curve and peak workloads, you might find yourself working late into one night and similarly having little to do another day. Management understands this and is flexible in allowing privileges to compensate for long nights.

    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

    At comScore, there is an unwavering focus on innovation and product improvement. The list of clients that comScore services is extensive and impressive, giving employees the chance to work on top brands. Furthermore, the work environment is incredibly friendly and senior management is highly accessible and engaged.

    Cons

    As with most market research and consulting companies, the work life balance can suffer from time to time. This is particularly evident in the 4th quarter.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to innovate and strive to become the currency of digital advertising from both a planning and measurement point of view.
