    Pros

    The recruiters truly care about their candidates and ensure they produce the best teams possible. When I initially applied for a role I wasn't fully qualified for, rather than purely reject me, the recruiter sent my app to a team that was interested in my qualifications. Because of this amazing recruiter, I was hired by a team that was a much better fit for me!

    Cons

    No downsides yet, as I am new to the company.

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

    Pros

    The fact that it could be so much more is one of the pros. It's in a great place in the industry to do a lot.
    There's plenty to learn about the industry and as a data analyst you are pretty hands on with the main data streams and can if you reach out be aware of everything new that's happening.
    Fantastic place to start your career, fire hose of information about digital media and you do learn a lot, very fast.

    Cons

    "The everything new that's happening" doesn't happen fast enough and comScore is often behind the curve. Sales bemoans the lack of movement and you can't blame them.
    Bureaucracy? If you're the really aggressive kind then this might not be the place for you. Things move at a deliberate place and most managers are unwilling to share responsibility so you're position in the totem pole is always clear. Approachable yes? True leaders, No. Micromanagement is rampant across teams from what I saw. When people realize they've hit this ceiling they move on and that's what you will notice across teams.
    Pay is moderate, not bad but nothing to write home about.

    Advice to Management

    Get more nimble and have managers in place that are more willing to share the spotlight.

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

    Pros

    It is an innovative company taking necessary steps to right itself after a bout with not so great leadership. Major competitor in the world of digital audience analysis. The people are smart and invested in the success of the company. Many have been around for years but the company also brings in young talent. Can be a good place to spread your wings if you are aggressive about doing so.

    Cons

    A lot of smart people sometimes means clashing in an unproductive way, lack of transparency and bitterness. There can be a tendency to silo each other versus working together. It's hard to get a straight answer on the direction in which leadership intends to take the company. However, maybe that will change soon. It's never good to feel unsure. It creates too much tension during the work day. Also, some managers are happy not to present opportunities to grow to subordinates.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the employees and work to build TRUST. Words don't matter but actions do. Invest in the current workforce and know that there is a whole lot of amazing talent that is not being utilized due to ASSUMPTIONS.
