I worked out of the Canadian offices: - Good office culture (employees got a long quite well) - Plenty of snacks and drinks stocked in the kitchen - Good potential for personal growth (if going into Sales is your preference) - 3 weeks vacation starting (pretty on par with most tech companies) - Work/ Life balance is there and we get laptops to work from home for any emergencies
- The only way to grow within the Canadian offices if you are part of the client service team is to move into Sales. For those people that didn't want to go that route, their career path stagnated. Because the Canadian office is just a remote office of the US headquarters, it is really hard to carve out a long term career where you'd be able to work different areas of the business.

Still feel the startup spirit in it, which is a good thing. Good positive environment, management is helpful. Excellent environment for interns or new professionals! Lost of smart AND intelligent people around, who share their know/how. Obtaining information, even interdepartmental is usually fast and people tend to be approachable. Some critter comforts are provided for free, which helps a lot . Life/work balance is good as time can be flexible.
Career paths are not clear or non-existent, Not an issue for me right now, but it will be at mid to long term.Comscore Response9y
We're really glad to hear this! Thanks for sharing with us and the community. We've made some good strides over the last few years with career pathing, beginning with establishing a management or non-management track for employees. Are we perfect yet? Nope, and that's probably unrealistic, but we do aim to keep continually improving, especially as we grow. But as you noted, the fast-paced, like-a-startup roots still run strong here, and we're really proud of that being part of the culture.

There are some really really smart, caring and collaborative employees at comScore. People that will really teach you and help you grow. Free snacks and drinks. Unlimited vacation, which is a nice idea...
While there are some amazing co-workers, you will also find a slew of conniving, arrogant individuals whom will act like your friend and really want you to grow at the company, but really, they care nothing about you at all and only care about themselves. There wasn't really a path to growth, and it's difficult to transfer groups internally. Work life balance depends on your team and your vertical. Pay isn't that great and training opportunities are slim to none. It's a factory. Stock price went down dramatically after they filed their 10K late and it hasn't bounced back since. There was a layoff (again) in February, meaning there has basically been a layoff every single year since I've worked here (3 years). Inconsistent structures among verticals and responsibilities across titles is also inconsistent. There are a lot of prideful, egotistical and incredibly fake salespeople that just care about the sale and don't care about the product or the people delivering the products. Focus on the sales cycle to be more collaborative across sales, analytics, insights and marketing.20Comscore Response8y
Thanks for your review. We're sorry to hear that your experience was less than ideal. However, we'd like to point out a few things: We have a clearly defined policy for people to pursue internal opportunities, and encourage people to do so, if they have the skill set for the new role. There are also times that we can train them in that new role, given their internal product/process knowledge. Regarding layoffs - these are never fun for anyone involved. However, we recognize that there are times when the business priorities shift and redundancies can be created or brought to light. It is a misnomer that we have had layoffs every year for 3 years. In fact, this past action was the first reduction in force we had in almost 3 years, and was largely based on changes to products we would be servicing and some overlap with acquisitions. We're actively developing programs for managers, and internal training for employees for skills they will need for their roles. Our Learning and Development team has made great strides over the last few years. We're also extending this to sales, to see how we can bridge any gap (real or perceived) between sales and the wider organization.

The team that I worked directly with in Marketing was incredible - very knowledgeable, proficient in their role/responsibilities and just really good, nice people. Leadership in the marketing group understood the value of MarTech and how it could elevate our ability to meet our goals and objectives. My leadership also understood my skill set and proficiency and what I could bring to the table if given the opportunity. Great work/life balance (probably because of what I document in the Cons below)
I was part of the group that was laid off in February 2016. After only 6 months on the job, I was given my walking papers which ended up being one of the best things for my career. It was very difficult for me to actually get anything done in my role - the relationship between marketing and sales seemed to be very political at times. Trying to get new ideas off the ground, while valued, never really happened. There were times where I was "coached" on how to communicate with other people in the organization and while I appreciated the "guidance", it was this level of micromanagement that made it difficult for me to actually want to share ideas with people. I worked out of the Toronto office which seemed very stale and dated. There were days where I would go in and a word would not be spoken. I am sure the people there were extremely nice, but because I was not part of the departments that worked out of there, there was no need to talk to me. It became clear to me after a month or so that my role wasn't really needed in the group that I worked in - as I said in my "pros" comments, my team was extremely proficient - oftentimes overlapping with my roles and responsibilities. I never felt like my work was going to go anywhere because of the political nature I experienced - what I thought would be beneficial to the group to understand from a marketing performance standpoint seemed to turn into busy work. The only true project that I felt I got done was helping to get our group nominated for an award based on projects that I was not a part of - I was asked to help with this because the person in my role previously was the one that did it the year before. I certainly don't regret my time at comScore as it was definitely a learning experience and met and worked with some of the brightest people in my career, however, I don't feel like I was ever utilized properly nor did I feel like I could actually get something done.8
