    Pros

    Depends what on what position. In the my department, you are basically dumped on and don't get compensated properly.

    Cons

    The workload, the people/environment can be stifling

    Advice to Management

    Rewards based on someone's performance

    Pros

    Nice office, always has food and snacks to eat. Great company to have on your resume, especially if you want to continue working for a digital analytics company.

    Cons

    Managers do not know how to manage. I know this is a blanket statement but in certain departments managers are not supportive and talk down to their workers, causing them unnecessary stress and creating a hostile work environment. If you do accept their offer, do not expect any kind of bonus or a pay increase overtime. They are known for keeping employees pay the same even if they do receive a new title.

    Advice to Management

    When placing someone in a management position, make sure they understand the proper way to manage people. This may sound very obvious but the high turnover in a particular department is a sign that the manager isn't doing a very good job. If someone does not have any management experience, you should put them in a management training course so they have a better understanding of how to properly handle workers. It truly is a shame to lose good workers because of one persons poor management skills.

    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 (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The satellite offices allow to you to work with much freedom and independence. The Pioneer Square office in Seattle, in particular, is in a great location. comScore is well-known in digital advertising and therefore makes for a decent first job.

    Cons

    I joined comScore with one of their acquired companies. From the onset, it was very clear that employees of acquired other companies were not happy with the way integration was handled and I quickly gained the same opinion. With very few growth opportunities and poor access to management, many of my former team members left within the first year.

    Advice to Management

    Take the time to listen to your employees and respond to their concerns.

    Pros

    Upward mobility for smart, creative, hardworking people; solid senior management team; flexibility given to top performers; great industry

    Cons

    Lack of investment in people management skill development; very aggressive revenue goals create a lot of stress from top-down; very data-heavy

    Advice to Management

    Create avenues for young analysts to get exposure and make an impact; collect feedback from the bottom of the organization to better understand the effectiveness of middle management; do more internal education -- everyone that works there should be an expert in digital

    Pros

    Creating new technology and products all the time
    Work with a lot of very intelligent people
    Laid back office atmosphere and culture

    Cons

    Layoffs - across the board and targeted (4 rounds in 5.5 years working here).
    Sales staff - often sell garbage and don't support their business post-sale, creating a lot of extra work for those who are expected to deliver.
    Promotions - really only based on tenure, not so much on performance. There are some highly unqualified people working in senior level positions as a result.

    Advice to Management

    Weed out the poor performers and focus more on performance when considering promotions. Don't promise things to clients that you know can't be delivered.

    Pros

    Smart, hardworking and loyal employees that are often working late nights to meet deadlines and objectives. Loved working with talented people and comScore is full of them.

    Cons

    Executive team needs to drive a vision throughout the organization that all may understand follow. When talent leaves, it is often a result or lack of upside. comScore needs to create a better path of success.

    Advice to Management

    Vision and messaging comes from the top. This should be driven top down.
