    I have been working at comScore full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Creating new technology and products all the time
    Work with a lot of very intelligent people
    Laid back office atmosphere and culture

    Cons

    Layoffs - across the board and targeted (4 rounds in 5.5 years working here).
    Sales staff - often sell garbage and don't support their business post-sale, creating a lot of extra work for those who are expected to deliver.
    Promotions - really only based on tenure, not so much on performance. There are some highly unqualified people working in senior level positions as a result.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Weed out the poor performers and focus more on performance when considering promotions. Don't promise things to clients that you know can't be delivered.

    I worked at comScore full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Upward mobility for smart, creative, hardworking people; solid senior management team; flexibility given to top performers; great industry

    Cons

    Lack of investment in people management skill development; very aggressive revenue goals create a lot of stress from top-down; very data-heavy

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create avenues for young analysts to get exposure and make an impact; collect feedback from the bottom of the organization to better understand the effectiveness of middle management; do more internal education -- everyone that works there should be an expert in digital

    Former Employee - Client Service Manager

    I worked at comScore full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    great peers, smart people, family friendly; Ability to work remotely if needed.

    Cons

    Really difficult to understand how products work together; constant re-org and not enough resources to get everything done. Benefits are really average for the industry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do a better job understanding where you need resources and stop reorganizing every few months. The constant change makes it really hard to focus on clients.

    Current Employee - Sales Manager  in  Reston, VA
    Current Employee - Sales Manager in Reston, VA

    I have been working at comScore full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Smart, hardworking and loyal employees that are often working late nights to meet deadlines and objectives. Loved working with talented people and comScore is full of them.

    Cons

    Executive team needs to drive a vision throughout the organization that all may understand follow. When talent leaves, it is often a result or lack of upside. comScore needs to create a better path of success.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Vision and messaging comes from the top. This should be driven top down.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Reston, VA
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Reston, VA

    I worked at comScore full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Free drinks & snacks- pretty much to keep you working longer hours

    Cons

    Worst place I've every had the displeasure of working! Starts with HR, there is minimal communication from them, no face time, no orientation time, not there to help you review any info as a new employee- pathetic. Then, there is minimal training which oftentimes the info can be incorrect then you're held accountable for poor communication from your manager! Long hours, I worked over 60hrs /week for 2mos straight without any kind of comp time & they don't pay time & a half you get 1/2 time for anything over 40hrs! What an insult to my hard work & commitment. Then laid off w/ minimal severance pkg, some people were there longer than me didn't get anything, just told to leave! So much prejudice, nepatism/favortism that it is clear they don't like anyone not like them! I hate this place & can't wait to leave, just give me my last paycheck & severance & I'm outta here!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn how to manage people, promote from within & stop lying to your staff about hours & some "comscore code" what a joke! You're kiling people, literally with these ridiculous hours & unreasonable expectations.

    I have been working at comScore full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The general employee pool has some of the brightest people I have ever come across. There is potential.

    Cons

    The company spends a ton of money recruiting with top schools but does nothing to advance these entry level employees. Long-time managers are promoted and moved into other departmental managerial roles where they have no prior experience. This wreaks havoc and leaves a fat mid layer of VPs and SVPs that do nothing except bicker. Expect tons of work with little reward or appreciation. The old guard is king here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage new ideas and execute on them. Cultivate talent. Don't waste potential.
