Former Employee - Client Service Manager in Reston, VA
Former Employee - Client Service Manager in Reston, VA

I worked at comScore

Pros

-Ability to work from home
-"Casual" work attire every day
-Young office
-Cool work (digital market place)
-Coworkers were fun and we often hung-out outside of work

Cons

-Terrible commute to Reston from the metro-DC area
-Hours can be very long sometimes (12+ hour days)
-No overtime
-Very little acknowledgement of a job well done (upper management takes ALL THE CREDIT)
-Sometimes we felt that management was being "shady" with information
-Favoritism plays a role in promotions & raises the higher up you go
 -The work can be very mundane
-VERY little variety in work (once you are placed in your "vertical" you're pretty much stuck working on the same clients over and over and over.....)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Value your employees or they will all start leaving and heading to other companies (and not just with happy hours...how about some real recognition?)

    Laid back atmosphere and great client exposure

    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...
