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

    Pros

    Smart workforce and very flexible management (though I've heard this varies by department). Work-life balance was very good, though it can get busy during certain months. There are many opportunities to try your hand in different areas of the business and management is open to development opportunities.

    Cons

    Client expectations can sometimes be unreasonable as well as management's catering to client whims.

    Advice to Management

    Continue rewarding employees for good work and presenting opportunities for growth.

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

    Pros

    comScore is a great place to work. There is a real spirit of innovation and creativity. There are very few problems with office politics and the upper management is very accessible. Has the perks of both a small and large company. Decent time off and good benefits.

    Cons

    High amounts of customization for clients means that there is some inconsistency in certain applications within the company and poor documentation on the more advanced product details. There is a pretty steep learning curve to attain more than average proficiency.

    Advice to Management

    Hold the sales team accountable for their screwups!! Hold the developers accountable for more transparent and thorough documentation.

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

    Pros

    People are what make comScore great. From the leadership on down they are approachable and supportive.

    Cons

    Project driven environment and sometimes there can be extremely tight timelines. Account folk (i.e. VPs/SVPs) do not necessarily have a research background. They will alter deadlines and even change the scope of work on you without your knowledge. This unfortunately mean that you need to take an aggressive project management role in addition to your other duties.

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

    Pros

    comScore is a great place to learn about the media industry. If you're the type of person who thrives on thinking outside the box, you would love comScore. The free drinks/snacks are awesome too!

    Cons

    Your experience is contingent upon your team. Some teams are innovative, cutting-edge, and function really well. Others are stuck in their ways. Very siloed teams at comScore.

    Advice to Management

    Don't put out press releases without a solid and tested product to back them up!
