    I worked at comScore as a contractor

    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

    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.

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

    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.

    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.
