Approves of CEO

I worked at comScore full-time (More than a year)

Pros

People are what make comScore great. From the leadership on down they are approachable and supportive.

Cons

Project driven environment and sometimes there can be extremely tight timelines. Account folk (i.e. VPs/SVPs) do not necessarily have a research background. They will alter deadlines and even change the scope of work on you without your knowledge. This unfortunately mean that you need to take an aggressive project management role in addition to your other duties.

    I worked at comScore full-time

    Pros

    - respectable reputation from the outside looking in
    - Excellent thought-leadership research being published routinely
    - one of the original analytics companies in the digital space led by pioneers in market research
    - some talented people, albeit they don't stick around for very long :(
    - It's fun to count the # of swear words the CEO can spew out when people forget to mute their lines during large internal conference calls. His temper is legendary.

    Cons

    - most unprofessional leadership / management i've reported to (+20 year career) = dishonest, fear-driven environment of the highest order.

    - little to no valuable hands-on training despite what they tell you = you have to work all the time to keep up. You will often times do the work of (2) people. You're in the deep-end from the day you start.

    - I've overheard SVPs concede that they'd NEVER sell for this company based on how they manage the business. Highly erratic revenue goals = very erratic (poop rolls down hill) management practices.

    -comScore is chronically laying people off in pursuit of trying to remain profitable. Understaffing is the norm there & you will work evenings & weekends regularly AND you will encounter checkpoints w/out anyone there to address client-facing time-sensitive requests everyday = bad for business relationships

    -Their legacy business (syndicated) is on the verge of decline based on the rapid evolution of media buying & the the rapid decline of their consumer panel which is among their only 'real' differentiators among competitors. This is exactly why the want to SELL the company.

    -They do not have a credible footprint/measurement approach in the mobile channel which is as important as their efforts to develop multi-platform solutions = soon will run into a brick wall if they're not acquired. Their business has an expiration date & it's closer than it appears.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on truckin'!
