    Former Employee - Senior Research Manager in Chicago, IL

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

    Pros

    Good 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.

    Cons

    Less 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.

    I have been working at comScore for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Exciting 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.

    Cons

    Extremely 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 ManagementAdvice

    Need to value your people assets, and improve management training overall

    I worked at comScore full-time

    Pros

    Free 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

    Cons

    CEO: "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.

    Former Employee - Manager in Reston, VA

    I worked at comScore full-time

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Clients 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 ManagementAdvice

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

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

    Pros

    Relaxed work environment, flexible hours, generous time off policy. A good place to start out and make friends and get your feet wet in the corporate culture.

    Cons

    Some teams promote their employees all the time, some don't at all which seems unfair. Management tends to play favorites and those who aren't in the "in-crowd" can be left behind

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop playing favorites. Consider not waiting until the last minute to solve problems and forcing everyone to scramble.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Pressure 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 ManagementAdvice

    Better communicate corporate vision to general staff
