    I have been working at comScore (Less than a year)

    Pros

    If you need to be a firm 9-5, you can be. There also seem to be a number of flexible work opportunities if needed.

    Interesting industry.

    Starting salary is decent for the industry (but increases are small).

    People are generally friendly and non-competitive.

    Cons

    Short paid parental leave.

    The goals of the company are somewhat unclear. There are overarching buzz words, such as cross-platform, but no concrete internal and commercial goals communicated to help us get there.

    Employee retention does not appear to be a high priority.

    Product and technical industry knowledge lacking in the Sales department.

    There is not a strong "culture" at comScore. You have offices where large sections of people do not know one another (although the offices are not extremely big). There is also very little done day-to-day to create a culture and improve employee morale.

    Doesn't seem to be much training for managers on how to best manage people and grow their careers.

    Advice to Management

    Overall, I think this company needs to think about investing in its people the same way it invests in new products. There is a lot of talent within the company, but many people are not being properly motivated to reach their full potential. I think we could squeeze a lot more out of the resources we already have, instead of continuing to spend money on new ones.

    Pros

    Free snacks, nice office in Willis tower, big cubicles, decent hardware.

    Cons

    They don't pay well to senior developers. Sometimes they give new title just to keep employee. Frequent layoffs aka restructuring.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in senior developers. College hires can't run company, they need to learn from somebody.

    I have been working at comScore full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Interesting projects, casual work environment, flexible hours. If you prove yourself capable, you can have a good bit of influence on the direction of your team's work. The company is always working on new R&D so things stay interesting. Your mileage may vary depending on your team. Co-workers and managers are generally smart and friendly people.

    Cons

    Teams can get stuck in their ways. There is resistance to overhauling old code, so you can get stuck dealing with hacked-together legacy code and poor design decisions. There is often too much focus on adding new features and not enough on quality. Again, mileage varies by manager and team.

    Advice to Management

    Improve communication with employees. Make internal transfers more available.

    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.
