comScore is a good place to work if you are in the rank-and-file; frustrating if you are more senior..

    Pros

    It is a fun place to work and there are a lot of smart people. The company is public and has a lot of resources to use in buying companies. They also are willing to invest in the engineering and qa teams. I worked in the engineering team for a few years and thought it was a job where you can learn a lot. The leadership of the engineering team, including the CTO and vice president of engineering are a clown show, but if you like bozo, you would be fine with them. The company is fun to work at.

    Cons

    The management yells at the employees and doesn't understand basic motivation skills and should probably take a class on how to motivate people. The guys running the company, such as the CEO and president are smart smart smart and know how to make a company successful. From everything I heard, they have built 4 companies that have been successful between them. They are really good to work for and, when they take the time to visit with the technology teams, they know how to let us in on the business and help us in seeing why we are working so hard. I wish we could spend more time with them because they do know how to motivate people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a management class and learn how to listen to people that work for you. For the executive people I would say the only feedback is to look at the technology leadership and make certain you know what is going on in there. You are spending a lot of money on the engineering effort and it would be a bad thing if this bad leader we are dealing with would cause you to lose good people. Is there some coaching program you can provide for them? One example is when I had to go to renew my visa and they would not let me do this without giving me a hard time.

    I worked at comScore full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    There's some great people who work here. Personally, too smart and talented to be wasted at comscore in my opinion. Health/Dental Benefits are great.

    Cons

    Management is horrible. They do not care about work-life balance. It used to be a great company to work for, but new management came in and all the good people either left/got fired or let go. Management tells you that they're on your side, but they're so heartless and will stab you in the back at any given notice. The culture now is pretty much, you come in, put your head down, work and go home. You talk to someone, you're worried that you'll lose your job. Not good mentally if this is something you're looking long term.
