    Pros

    Unlimited PTO, Exposure to Big Data and large scale problem solving. Leadership in most parts of the company is pretty strong.

    Cons

    Leaders of different parts of the organization rarely agree and often pursue objectives independent of one another. Hours can be long, but that is becoming more rare. Change can be slow, but it does eventually happen. Pay is below average.

    Pros

    The landscape is ever changing. There's no time for monotony here. We're always looking forward to the next step and how to improve our services. Thinking outside the box encouraged. Flexible time-off. Great benefits.

    Cons

    There are always cons to every job. I'm very content and can't complain about anything.

    Advice to Management

    My personal experience with upper management has been great.

    I have been working at comScore full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There are a lot of smart engineers here. Most of the hostile and cranky engineers left when Rentrak became comScore, so there's a generally good collaborative environment.
    Engineering managers are all really good too (good at insulating engineers from business people!)
    Some of benefits are of acceptable quality.
    Managers seem willing to give you more money if you're competent and ask for it.
    Managers encourage very good life/work balance.

    Cons

    Some engineers are incompetent or slackers and get away with it, which lowers morale.
    401k is of inferior quality.
    Upper management seems to generally be of poor quality, though this most recent round of upper management seems OK.
    Company is entrenched in scandal.

    Advice to Management

    Bring back the Portland benefits you slashed when Rentrak became comScore (transit passes, decent 401k).

    I have been working at comScore full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    [This review is coming from a former Rentrak employee, working out of Portland.]

    - There are interesting problems to solve, in a variety of areas. No shortage of work to be done.
    - Smart, engaged co-workers

    Cons

    - There are high-level directives from top executives but daily tasks seem unfocussed. There doesn't appear to be clear direction from mid-level management.
    - An aging technology stack is kept working with minimal investment in upkeep. Scattered efforts to improve or replace our stack have failed to coalesce into real change. Bugs can exist for years without efforts to squash.
    - Many of the best engineers from Rentrak have left since the buyout.
    - Upper management seems to have a severe case of ADD, distracted by the latest flashy thing. They don't seem involved in the day-to-day work.
    - 401k match and benefits are pretty weak for the industry and location.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on quality software, whether that means fixing or replacing existing application. Instead of chasing the short-term dollar with custom client work, use your developers, working together, to create better software that delivers to all of our clients.

    Pros

    I had the opportunity to work on some cool projects. The amount of autonomy you are given is unique for a position this early in your career.

    Cons

    The company can feel as though it lacks continuity and structure. Depending on your team you can end up working long hours.

    I have been working at comScore full-time

    Pros

    The boots on the ground are amazingly talented, passionate, and hard working.

    Cons

    The executives and management teams have one set of rules for themselves and another set for the people actually doing the work.

    Department managers, when not working remotely or on vacation, work in silos and repeatedly undermine each other's work.

    Advice to Management

    Realize the talent turnover can be alleviated. Be present and understand the project.
