    Pros

    I have a good working environment with my boss and colleagues. My boss is caring the working hours each member in the team, and that is very sweet.

    Cons

    I can't learn new things after a year here, and everything is repeating over the time.

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

    Pros

    Easy going, laid back working environment with a decent salary. I enjoyed everyone I worked with and I learned a lot from other teams. Dress and vacation are casual.

    Cons

    First and foremost, the work-life balance was not good depending on your level within the company or the group you were in. With that, there was no track or work with management to move upward and onward. After about year 1, everyday felt the same. Work at home was frowned upon even on snow days.

    Advice to Management

    For the most part, keep doing what you are doing, but note that junior engineers coming in want to know there is a future in the company and some of us never got that feeling.

    I worked at comScore full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Might be a good place to start career as a software engineer, as the threshold is not that high and you can learn a decent amount of new technologies in a short time.

    Work load is reasonable, work-life balance is pretty good.

    Most co-workers are very kind and easy-going

    Cons

    After one year staying there you will find that you are doing the same thing again and again, not much new things you can learn. If you would like to improve your coding & design skills it is definitely not the right place. it does not even have standard code review process & deployment process. Systems often broke by some random code changes & silly bugs.

    Compensation is just average.

    Promotion opportunities are mostly depending on how long time you have been working there, not your contribution or talent.

    Advice to Management

    Standard code review & deployment process are definitely required. Young engineers need inputs from experienced ones to improve there coding & design skills

    Pros

    Good place to get involved with the industry.
    Flexible working time with good life work balance.
    Basic tech skills learned including SQL, Hadoop, R and Python.

    Cons

    Not too much learning space after 1-2 years but still might be different case by case and team by team.
    Mentorship is not so great.

    I worked at comScore full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great experience/solid compensation right out of college
    Ability to work across multiple industries
    A-List Clients
    Gain knowledge on the digital space/market research/advertising, etc...
    Interesting methodology, products
    Ability to work with multiple teams and gain that "liason" experience (CS/product/ad ops/custom/etc..)

    Cons

    - Some teams operate like exclusive clubs... moving up becomes difficult unless you mold yourself into their one size fits all model of excellence
    - HR/VPs do not necessarily act on employee feedback... bad people managers continue to manage analysts even when it is obvious they should only stick to client servicing/sales
    - Learning stalls after a certain points... Folks who stick around past 3-4 years are pretty much committed to staying at comScore at that point; you become such an expert on comScore products and methodology that it seems difficult for them to transfer those skills elsewhere. I've heard things like "comScore is all I know"
    - Questionable "custom" studies; sample sizes, etc...

    Advice to Management

    This place has potential; but so do many of the strong candidates you recruit out of top colleges. Don't put in the effort to recruit if you don't plan on retaining... listen to employee feedback. Make sure managers are actually managers and know how to treat people. When a team experiences 100% turnover at the analyst level (all for the same reasons) that should be a red flag. What are you waiting for to react?
