    Pros

    Some of the work is interesting, though much of it is bone chillingly dull. Nice place to work in the Reston Town Center, which will soon have subway access. Salary was reasonable.

    Cons

    Not much opportunity for advancement. People get in supervisory positions with little to no ability and just stay there,

    Pros

    Variety of clients, relaxed culture, good learning experience in the digital advertising ecosystem. A good company to start your career

    Cons

    Overall management was rocky, not many opportunities for advancement, lots of red tape. Promotions are given out based on time spent at the company and not what you have achieved.

    Pros

    Few product in comscore have great capabilities. Huge data with scalable product and people work hard to improve as per industry expectation. People here are smart and talented.

    Cons

    Management at all level are involved in politics. They first see the individual's gain rather than company's overall benefits. Coz of politics at upper level many of the engineers have to loose their job. A big loss to company and they did nothing to sustain their smart employees who have really worked hard. There are times where they could have keep employee from leaving if they have decided to transfer within a team. Fake condolences have given than actual effort to keep them.I have heard so many times from the management that this company is in big trouble and it will be hard to keep up the business that's why they are letting people to go.
    If this is the case then this is big red flag for people who are thinking to come on board in future.

    I worked at comScore full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    As a result of all the issues, the company is restructuring its verticals, its products and strategy. Systems are being updated and integrated. People have more accountability, like it was supposed to be from the beginning. The company seems to be going the right direction when it comes to systems and processes.

    Cons

    Culture became too rigid. Feels like a government job rather than a tech company. No effort was made to retain a lot of smart people who left after issues continued.

    Advice to Management

    There is no sense of trust, unity or purpose among staff. Rebuild trust. Motivate employees. People don't come to work to contribute to the company's mission and vision, they work and receive salaries but that's it.

    Increase benefits to attract the best talent in the area. Hire one amazing person instead of two average people. Yes, the pay and benefits are comparable to mid sized regional companies in the area, but way below average compared to global companies with comparable goals and aspirations.

    Most importantly - rebuild the tech culture. organization is not flat anymore, managers don't listen to subordinate ideas anymore and act like silos..

    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.

    Pros

    They offered a nice incentive program for transitional employees after an acquisition.

    Cons

    They attempted to exclude me from making 401k contributions on my final check; thereby excluding me from 401k matching contributions. When I caught them, they over-taxed the final payment. However, in the end, it may have worked out better for me financially.
