    I have been working at comScore full-time

    Pros

    Great co-workers, lots of training and exposure to different skills/products, competitive pay, relaxed yet hard working environment, vacation policy is very relaxed.

    Cons

    Office location is not the most convenient, benefits are sub par, career path is vague (but mgmt is working to clarify that part).

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing!

    Pros

    Smart people, great name in the industry, great technology.

    Cons

    Technology is becoming outdated. US firm that thinks primarily of the US market. International is a MUCH bigger opportunity. Not enough service based personnel. Quarterly business culture cripples long term sales strategy. Not enough international cooperation on multi-national deals. Every man for himself culture.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the market, and what it requires. Then develop tools/products to fix those problems. Stop forcing business through at quarter and year end that leaves significant value on the table and de-values future business dealings.

    Pros

    Good work if you get into right team otherwise mid level manages ruin your career.

    Cons

    They launched unlimited vacation policy where there are no fixed vacations or sick leaves. Policy says, you can take vacation responsibly as long as your manager agrees. Now this is the biggest catch !! Some teams with better management are well utilizing this policy while few are making their teams over work Not giving even sick days or work from home when it's really needed. Company's policies get overridden by managers for their own personal growth. it's annoying when someone keep watch on you to see if 8 hrs work is done or not. Time spent on kids appointment need to be compensated by staying late in office on same day. New vacation policy keep employee's at managers' mercy. No one wants to beg for vacations when it is our basic need. Managers have 1000 reasons not to give you even 1 day off or sick leave.. You will not enjoy being in company when other teams get all benefit and you are getting discriminated because of your manager's own policies. You will enjoy company and it's policies if you are fortunate enough to get in good team. This new vacation policy turned to be against employees basic needs and work environment.

    Advice to Management

    I hope management sees peoples dissatisfaction frustration due to unlimited vacation policy and take action to correct it !!!

    Good place to get involved with the industry. Flexible working time with good life work balance. Basic tech skills learned including SQL, Hadoop, R and Python.

    Cons

    Not too much learning space after 1-2 years but still might be different case by case and team by team. Mentorship is not so great.

    Advice to Management

    Improve mentorship system and help people learn more.

    Pros

    Solid earning potential, interesting product, great coworkers. Sales people here are motivated and rewarded for putting their motivation to work.

    Create a formal training system and make sure that every employee has the same level of training on every product, especially in sales.

    Pros

    Great company that is leading the charge in digital measurement. comScore is constantly at the forefront of innovation.

    Cons

    A big company that still acts like a startup. Good and bad with that but like any company, it's a challenge to navigate internally. but there are a lot of good people to help you get the answer.

    Advice to Management

    continue to break down silos in the organization to enable easier communication across the different verticals and offices.

    Pros

    Great leadership and management and pretty good fundamentals across functional teams paired with a robust portfolio of complementary product offerings that enable end-to-end business management and decision making for any entity with an online presence. I would work there again in a heartbeat.

    Cons

    Napoleon complex relative to Nielsen is natural - marketing mix model showing 2008-2010 and 2015 would show comScore is the future. Lots of politics, even for tech and business.

    Advice to Management

    As you grow, make nimbleness a key differentiator - whether through an EIR role function, etc. - to test things with key clients similar to vCE Mobile.
