    Pros

    Advice to Management

    -better recruiting standard

    Pros

    - Amazing exposure to big-name clients (Yahoo, Microsoft, Morgan Stanley, etc...)
    - Great Training
    - No dress code
    - Incredibly bright people (most people come from Duke, Cornell, MIT, UVA, or Penn)
    - Promotions merit based (there are people who are promoted three levels in two years)
    - YOUNG company - can't emphasize how great this is... most of your team members are in their 20's or 30's....

    Cons

    some teams work way more hours than others... other than that there is very little negative that I can say about my past year at comScore.

    Advice to Management

    Don't lose the "start-up" feel! We stay at comScore because its not like other companies

    SSF location doesn't beat a SF downtown location

    Advice to Management

    Continue the culture that has set comScore apart.

    Pros

    Good place to work. Management leaves you with a lot of responsibility very early in your career. Decent pay grade.

    Cons

    Lots of responsibility really early in your career is not ideal for some. Some people can remain stagnant throughout their career at comscore.

    Advice to Management

    Would be wise to promote high risers more quickly based on their work. Otherwise, they'll find interest in other companies.

    Pros

    At comScore, there is an unwavering focus on innovation and product improvement. The list of clients that comScore services is extensive and impressive, giving employees the chance to work on top brands. Furthermore, the work environment is incredibly friendly and senior management is highly accessible and engaged.

    Cons

    As with most market research and consulting companies, the work life balance can suffer from time to time. This is particularly evident in the 4th quarter.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to innovate and strive to become the currency of digital advertising from both a planning and measurement point of view.

    Pros

    There is a very laid back atmosphere where employees enjoy a business casual attire. The cafeteria has an xBox and is stocked with snacks, letting you relax when things get stressful. Exposure to clients is great and allows entry level employees to hit the ground running. There is very much an entrepreneurial atmosphere, allowing employees to grow the business organically and tackle challenges in a fast-paced technology based firm.

    Cons

    Occasionally it might be difficult to break away from work. Since there is a large learning curve and peak workloads, you might find yourself working late into one night and similarly having little to do another day. Management understands this and is flexible in allowing privileges to compensate for long nights.

    Neutral Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I worked at comScore full-time (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.
