    Filled with smart, data-savvy, down-to-earth people

    Senior Research Manager (Former Employee)
    Chicago, IL

    ProsGood benefits, good compensation, pleasant office space. Everyone I worked with was friendly, highly competent, and intelligent. I enjoyed eating out with my co-workers regularly. Was motivated to high standard of work by my colleagues. Sadly, there were layoffs and many of these great people dispersed.

    ConsLess direct communication from management than in other companies I've worked for. Understanding of the business imperative of our group and revenue goals relative to company goals was not so strong. I like to know how my job and contributions are tied to the company's larger goals.

    Growing Company

    Senior Financial Analyst (Current Employee)
    Reston, VA

    ProsPart of a growing industry
    Hugh network
    People are always ready to teach you new things
    Intelligent and focus driven work force

    ConsBenefits aren't too good
    No incentive for hard work sometimes

    Advice to Senior ManagementUntil and unless you become a big company try to resolve mid sized company issues that we face.

    Poor treatment of its employees leads to high turnover

    Senior Manager (Current Employee)
    Reston, VA

    ProsExciting field, super smart folks, great technology and lots of good work. Technology and research fields are exciting and marketing has done a great job getting comScore brand recognized globally.

    ConsExtremely poor work-life balance, extremely high turnover, CEO states he wants folks on the job day and night, they prefer burning or pushing out experienced employees in favor of cheap college grads, below-market compensation and benefits

    Advice to Senior ManagementNeed to value your people assets, and improve management training overall

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Overtime All-the-Time

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsFree snacks/coffee
    Immediately work on projects for well known companies
    Young office, lots of happy hours
    Relaxed dress code
    Good learning experience for someone right out of college

    ConsCEO: "comScore is not a 9 to 5 place to work". Expect to consistently work beyond the standard work week, and even longer if you want to get ahead.

    Clients are never told no - contracts are not written to be specific so the client is able to ask for whatever they want and get it...one factor that leads to long hours. Also, data is manipulated to show what makes client look good, rather than reality.

    People frequently leave the company or move to different teams. This is a pro if you're the person doing so, but if you're the one that stays it leads to more work/training the replacement.

    The 401k match rate is geared towards those who are not concerned about retirement.

    Focal point of innovation in the industry

    Vice President (Current Employee)
    Reston, VA

    ProsSharp, creative people with tremendous drive to creating new solutions. A playground for trailblazers. Solid meritocracy where high performers are recognized and rewarded.

    ConsPressure of being first to market can create fire drills. Disconnect in communication between senior leadership and staff make it difficult for some to see their contribution to the bigger picture.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBetter communicate corporate vision to general staff

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    All about making clients happy, not delivering a good product

    Manager (Former Employee)
    Reston, VA

    ProsFlexible about work hours, dress code, IT policy. Lots of free food, lunches, happy hours. Relatively high starting salaries for younger employees.

    ConsClients are never told no. Data integrity is not important to most managers. Priority is making clients happy by delivering data that gives clients 'good news' whether or not the data is sound. Result is 'yes men' get ahead in the company while people who question data quality do not.

    Too many layers of management, VPs report to other VPs who report to senior VPs who report to Executive VPs...

    Salaries are ok, but no bonuses for employees below Director level. 401k match is so small its almost nonexistent.

    Advice to Senior ManagementInstitute system of checks on data integrity or make changes to reporting structure to remove incentives for salespeople to mislead clients to increase sales numbers.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
