    Pros

    Smart people
    Great benefits
    Diverse locations
    good work/life balance

    Cons

    Company under investigation and the top execs are possibly in hot water for getting multi million $ stock grants based on dubious accounting that the Wall Street Journal called into question. This has been widely reported.

    Advice to Management

    Have the top execs give back the stock options awarded to them based on questionable accounting. Restore our confidence in the leaders of the company.

    Pros

    comScore is the currency in digital marketing and moving toward the same for all cross media measurement. For many companies it is a must buy. Meetings are medium/easy to get. The value is there for clients. Co-founder Gian Fulgoni has a great vision for the future.

    Cons

    Research budgets seem to be falling trend is analytics are better but doesn't answer the emotional or why's to what people do. Convincing clients to shift budgets takes time.

    Advice to Management

    Do a better job integrating new talent. comScore does a good job career pathing in Client Insights and technical roles but not in sales. There are very few junior sales people. Mid-level come in from outside but all the good relationships are already taken. Result - many people at comScore for 10+ years who are happy and hard for newcomers to find the same success.

    Pros

    The benefits are probably the best thing this company has to offer.

    Cons

    There is no advancement for a lot of employees. When I asked for career outlook, my manager just about laughed in my face. A few people carry the weight of the team while others get away with just showing up. Those that deserve to move up never do. Instead of promoting within, they hire new staff not even considering those who have been there for years producing results. They do a great job of making those who work the hardest feel worthless while praising those who do absolutely nothing for the success of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Ask employees how they feel about their leaders. Some "leaders" are not even leading and aren't even qualified to be in their positions.

    I have been working at comScore full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    comScore is a respected industry leader in audience measurement. Working in the digital space, our data isn't perfect but you can tell clients feel it's the best out there. Coming out of school you get thrown into the fire pretty quickly. This can be a good thing as you are forced to learn new skills and your resume evolves in rapid fashion. The Reston office has a great twenty-something community ideal for making friends out of school and networking across different verticals. comScore is a unique company which offers big responsibility right away with competitive compensation hiring out of school.

    Cons

    The company has been through some turmoil recently and it has kept upper management distracted a bit (understandably). Teams can be set in their ways and depending on the team long hours from younger employees and shorter hours from older employees can be common. comScore can try to be everything for everyone and I think that definitely affects my team. The desire to answer every question can takeaway from the ability to answer a few questions more completely. Constant changing of priorities can make accomplishing goals difficult.

    Advice to Management

    Investing in data assets is vitally important and comScore has done so. But investing in people and infrastructure is important as well. comScore hires a lot of recent graduates and almost all of them disappear within 3 years or so. I don't think that's coincidence. While perhaps that's an intentional decision there is a generational gap forming which I think is becoming problematic particularly when different teams have different experience levels and are working together.
