    Pros

    Lots of great and intelligent people who are passionate about changing the digital landscape.

    Cons

    There is a fairly regimented promotion schedule that doesn't always reward people for strong work, but rather keeps everyone on the same level based on time at the company.
    Pay doesn't match other Bay Area/Silicon Valley companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do more to keep top talent

    I worked at comScore full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Free drinks and snacks. In the Chicago office you get to work in the Sears Tower, so that's pretty cool.

    Cons

    I was hired on as a Campaign Manager for their vCE AdEffex product. I left a stable job for this position. Main reason I left was comScore offered me a better salary and normal hours. On the Friday of my third week with them, I was called into my manager's office. There was someone from their Reston, VA HR office on the phone telling me the company was going thru some restructuring and my position was no longer needed. THREE WEEKS after hiring me they just figured that out?!? Poorly managed company to say the least.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Figure out what you do and don't need before hiring.

    I worked at comScore full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The company has a very convenient location in Reston center (DC metro area), close to metro and bus station and public garages. The company treats you with free coffer, sodas, and potato chips

    Cons

    Very low professional ethic, most of managers are not technically literate. There are lots political games and wasteful meetings. If you are an engineer your promising is impossible unless you have close relationship with high management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to change the business model to more human valuable sector.

    Pros

    Good people, and the satisfaction of contributing to an industry leader.

    Cons

    Low pay - they try to hire lots of kids straight out of college. Hard to climb the ladder. Upper management is near universally uninspiring. Don't cover any transportation costs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get someone other than Magid to speak to the employees. He's brilliant, but incredibly boring as a speaker. He does not inspire.
